The morning session was on Safety. Learned a few things, got some ideas. Bear spray is a deterrent for both bears and humans. There’s almost no crime on public lands. As the speaker said, what criminal would travel miles into the wilderness to find someone to rob? And nomads just aren’t the criminal type. They form friendship groups and look out for each other.
The afternoon session was on health and first aid. Excellent speakers, one a retired paramedic, the other a retired army medic. Lots of good sense suggestions for what to have in an emergency kit. What kinds of medical situations to expect and what to do about them. And I should be drinking a lot more water than I do. Coffee really doesn’t count, darn it!
Tomorrow it’s going to rain here. Don’t know what I’ll be doing other than watching the DVD’s I brought.
