Making a trip plan is one of the most important things you can do to prepare for any outdoor adventure. Trip plans can be as simple as a verbal exchange between you and someone you trust about where you are going and when you anticipate returning, or as detailed as a written document left at home, in your car or with a friend or family member not travelling with you. Including information like the number of people in your party, what gear you are taking, your intended route and destination, and an emergency contact will help search and rescue personnel better understand the situation should you become lost.
