For a one night meal for example here is what I would take. Breakfast before you leave. You want to have heaps of carbs so you have heaps of energy for your trip. This shou…ld include a good size bowl of cereal (No sugar) It would be best with some milk to keep calcium levels up as well. Make sure you have heaps of fruit and a couple liters of water before you head out. Lunch along the way. You need light weight nutritional foods now. This could include some pita bread or Turkish bread with some dips, cheese, carrot and spinach. These foods are light weight and can last on a hiking trip. Snacks along the way. Dried fruit is really good for you and some lollies and nuts will also help you keep a good nutritional balance. Dinner. I have a couple of different recipes I like to use. First one: Honnekin noodles mixed with a kang tong sauce like honey soy, Add some vegetables such as capsicum, beans and carrot sticks and if you have acces to a fridge you can put some diced chicken in. Second: Dehydrated meals. You can buy a dehydrator of eBay for $75 and you can take any of your favorite meals with you even meat. Hope this helps you. remember water OS much better than high sugar energy drinks. Keep your fluids up and eat lots of carbs before you go. Repackage the food into smaller sealer bags as this keeps all your meals together and reduces the amount of waste that you will need to take out with you at the end. . Prepackaged Tuna & Crackers are a good source of protein & nourishment. . Peanut butter is also a good protein to take along, again with crackers or in prepackaged form. Taking bread to put the peanut butter on is also not too hard to do. Some prefer to re-package their peanut butter in a squeeze tube (found in most sports stores in the hiking stuff) so they don't need to try to spread the peanut butter with a knife, etc. You can always use your finger to scoop and spread though (assuming it's just your and you have some good hand sanitizer to use BEFORE you dip!) . Fresh fruits like apples, pears & oranges are durable for packing . While not exactly "healthy" per say, candy bars can be a quick and good source of carbs & calories . Trail bars - Kashi bars are high quality - travel well and can come packed with proteins . Dried fruits . Jerky The goal is to consume 3000-4000 calories a day, if you are hiking at a good pace and constant all day long.
Most rivers are short and unnavigable, due to the rough terrain that composes most of the Mexican territory; specially along the west coast where the Sierra Madre Occidental … mountain range is located. Notable exceptions include the Culiacan and Balsas rivers, which are the second and third longest in Mexico and flow from the Central Mexican Plateau into the Pacific. The ten most important rivers, in terms of length would be: . Rio Grande / Rio Bravo: 2,018 Km (1,255 mi), flowing into the Gulf of Mexico. . Rio Culiacan: 875 Km (544 mi), flowing into the Pacific Ocean. . Rio Balsas: 770 Km (479 mi), flowing into the Pacific Ocean. . Rio Lerma: 708 Km (440 mi), flowing into the Lake Chapala , in the western state of Jalisco. . Rio El Fuerte: 670 Km (417 mi), flowing through the Mexican states of Chihuahua and Sinaloa into the Gulf of California. . Rio Grijalva-Usumacinta: 608 Km (378 mi), flowing into the Gulf of Mexico. Part of the Usumacinta river conforms the Mexico-Guatemala Border along 200 Km (124 miles) of the river's length. . Rio Nazas: 600 Km (373 mi), flows into the Lagoon of Mayran , on the northern Mexican state of Coahuila. . Rio Grande de Santiago: 562 Km (350 m), flowing from the Chapala Lake westward into the Pacific Ocean. . Rio Panuco: 510 Km (317 mi), flowing through the states of San Luis Potosi, Tamaulipas and Veracruz, into the Gulf of Mexico. . Rio Soto La Marina: 416 Km (259 mi) born in the state of Tamaulipas and flowing into the Gulf of Mexico. As special mention, the Rio Colorado ( Colorado River , in the US) is flowing only 179 Kilometers (112 miles) through Mexican territory, into the Gulf of California.
Can you and your boyfriend get married if he is an illegal immigrant while he is in Mexico and you are in the US?
Answer. No. He has to apply to your Immigration Department for a visa. Even if you went to Mexico and married there he would still be considered illegal by American Authoriti…es. You would be wise to contact your Department of Immigration and find out what they say.
It is important to preface this answer with the disclaimer that there is no substitute for proper medical training by the Red Cross, for example. You can get First Aid, CPR, o…r Wilderness First Responder training there. The answer to the question is that it depends on the situation. If it is a minor wound, such as a cut or scrape, it is best to bandage it and hike out together to get the person better medical treatment. If it is a serious injury such as one to the head or a broken limb, it is best to not move the person. If the person is in stable enough condition to be left behind while you go and get help, you should do that; if someone can stay behind with the person while someone else goes to get help, that is even better. Before you go to get help, make sure you know exactly where you are.
There may be some local ordnance against it somewhere, but YOU will have to check with your local authorities to see if it applies in your jurisdiction.
It is not illegal to bring cigarettes from Mexico to the U.S. If you bring them across the border in Texas you have to pay a Federal tax and a State tax. I purchased 3 cartons… of Pall MAll for $16.00 US and had to pay $16.00 tax per carton to bring them into Texas. After the taxes it's not worth it.
Wherever they feel there is the least likelihood of being caught. Or, if they are paying someone, wherever he thinks there is the least likelihood of being caught.
well i suggest carrying those platypus things that you suck water out of instead of your normal water bottle. Water is really important when your hiking especially when your i…n a hot climate. make sure you drink enough.
They usually don't stay in Mexico, as most of them try to reach the United States. If they are caught by Mexican authorities, most of them are sent back to Guatemala or Belize….
That depends on the area. In general, American law only prohibits hitchhikers from standing in driving lanes, but allows them to stand on the shoulder or sidewalk of a road…. US States have the right to restrict pedestrians and hitchhikers from entering certain highways, but must post a sign if this is the case.
it is not itchy to wear only when you go hiking They can be. I know I have to find a "better" pair. Where they donot rub as much . +++ You can minimise it by wearing a pair …of thin, ordinary socks underthem.
Yes, many of them do, to return with their families. Most of them don't need to sneak back as nobody searches you or checks for your nationality on your way back to Mexico, th…ough.
Yes. In fact many of them did this until recent years, crossing illegally during certain seasons and returning back to their hometowns in Mexico for holidays or to see the fam…ily.
If someone tells you to hold on while you are hiking, it eithermeans to wait or to hold on to an object, such as a rock or branch,depending on the situation.
