    How to understand this sentence?

    Hi,

    Please be so kind as to tell me the meaning of the bold part:


    A winter hike calls for good equipment, but above all it requires careful planning.

    I don't understand the bold part, nor do I understand the correlation of the sentence, I am sorry for my stupidity but I want to learn something from you, thanks a lot.

    Hiking in the wintertime.

    You need good gear, the right clothing, boots, etc.

    You need to plan carefully as well.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
