Hiking and backpacking in the wilderness

Hiking and backpacking in the wilderness means leaving the safety and predictability of civilization behind. That is part of the adventure, and part of the danger. Here are six hiking and backpacking tips you can use to make it much safer, without taking away from the adventure.
1. Carry a compass, a map, and the knowledge of how to use them. Even if you don't have a good map. any map is better than nothing. People lost in the wilderness have often hiked farther into it because they had no idea in which direction was the nearest road. Practice with the compass near home, and use it before you need it, just to keep in practice.More tips on hiking and backpacking

The first sign of frostbite

Frostbite is a freezing of the skin and deeper body tissues. There are varying degrees, but the treatment is similar for all of them. In any case, the real degree of the frostbite usually won't be known until after it is treated and the damage can be determined.
The first sign of frostbite may be a loss of feeling in the affected area. White patches on the skin are the next obvious symptom. Watch for a white tip of the nose. The skin will appear pale and waxy. The fingers may even clack together like pieces of wood in serious cases.

Survival in the wilderness

It is vital for survival in the wilderness that you see the situation for what is really are and not for what you would like it to be. It is advised that you keep all your hope and expectations grounded in reality. When you put yourself into a survival situation with expectations and hopes that are unrealistic you are leaving yourself open for disappointment and failure.
It may take a number of skills to survive in the wilderness, but your most important skill and tool is your attitude. If you believe in yourself, keep your feet firmly grounded in reality and have faith in your skills, your chances of surviving in the wilderness are much greater.
The most important factor in anticipating stress when surviving in the wild is, know yourself as to your strengths and weaknesses.

Keep a backpack ready for tough times

A Bug Out Bag can get you through those rough times. It's even possible to be comfy during some disasters with the right gear. Let me tell you basically what a Bug Out Bag is.
A Bug Out Bag is a backpack or shoulder bag that you have ready to go at a moment's notice. But this isn't any regular bag. It's packed full of emergency gear to get you through those tough times.
In a well-packed Bug Out Bag you'll find stuff like…
Food
Water
Warm Clothing
Basic Tools
When you have some of the comforts of home, that hurricane doesn't seem so bad. The same goes for earthquakes, tornadoes, riots, war, and anything else nature or man throws at you.
When disaster strikes, you won't have time to pack supplies. You'll have to get out – and move fast! There won't be any time to pack a bag. But there will be time to grab one you already have ready to go.
Select a suitable backpack
Pack your Bug Out Bag to meet your particular needs
Make shelter using basic supplies
Pack tools you may need in the wild (or in the city)
Make your Bug Out Bag the ultimate tool to get you through tough times.
