I have created the following checklist for myself, and always keep it ready before I plan a hike or mountain hike. And before you start, check the checklist whether everything is included and has also been clarified. I can recommend such a checklist to everyone (in their own way). Important: Always pay attention to the current body shape, how someone is doing and whether he feels fit or not. Not to underestimate.Checklist (see below)route

My planning is realistic (schedule, personal skills, equipment, etc.).
I checked requirements and weather forecasts and worked out appropriate alternatives (e.g. abbreviations) so that I could reschedule on site if necessary.
The current conditions allow this mountain hike, I have a good feeling about it.
For hikes in groups: Hiking planning and responsibility in the group is regulated. Everyone is informed and motivated.

From 1635 to 1935, the former belfry, made of whitewashed oak, housed the four-part bells of the town church of Lenzburg. With the purchase of six new bells he had served in 1935 and was transferred to the shore of the idyllic Feufweiher. (Source: Forstdienste Lenzia)
