Survival Equipment for Outdoor Adventures
Any outdoor activity, even if it’s just hiking down a forest path, requires safety steps. That way you don’t get lost, twist an ankle, get bitten by an insect, or worse a snake.
I remember walking down a well-trodden path in a wooded public park on the south side of the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta, Georgia. I turned around to say something to my friend and wondered why her eyes were so big. I had just missed stepping on a water moccasin that was slithering away.
Outdoor activities are invigorating and the exercise helps us burn extra pounds. Serious outdoor activities such as backpacking, biking, kayaking, rafting, and rappelling in addition to safety steps all need special equipment and gear for survival.
For the purposes of this email survival book, let’s stick to hiking. To survive a several day hike on any mountainous terrain from the Appalachian Trail to the Western Rockies, you need:
· Sturdy footwear
· First-aid supplies
· Navigation (map and compass) GPS system
· Sun protection
· Repair kit and tools
· Multi-tool knife or Swiss Army Knife
· Signaling equipment
· Illumination (headlamp/flashlight)
· Nylon cord
· Waterproof outer wear
