Most of our gear still had that fresh-offthe-shelf smell. And even if the equipment worked, I wasn’t 100-percent sure that my New York-trained palate could survive three weeks of trail mix and dehydrated dinners. 2016 sources—including this magazine—would say that we should start with something smaller, that we weren’t prepared for a thruhike of the 211-mile John Muir Trail.

Panic causes hyperventilation, and sucking superheated, lung-charring wind will kill you a lot faster than a couple of burns will. Plus, liquids are conductors, and wetting your clothes (purposefully or not) means you’ve just put on a layer of boiling water. No matter how hot you get, keep dry. Same goes for inhaling through a wet bandana. That’ll earn you lip blisters, not a cool breath.
