Buy a survival book

Buy a survival  book on food and making shelter in the wilderness. This can be a great help if you get lost. If you have a GPS meter you can use that to figure out where you are and then use it with the map. You can enter your location in the GPS. This will mark the area you are in and keep you from walking in circles. You should also pack some extra dry clothing incase you get wet this can be serious and can cause hypothermia to set in if it gets cold at night. Water is what you will need the most ,take at least 2 light weight containers,one as a backup and plenty of water purification tablets.
If you have to leave home, you need this book. The team that brought you The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook now helps you navigate the perils of travel. Learn what to do when the tarantula crawls up your leg, the riptide pulls you out to sea, the sandstorms headed your way, or your camel just wont stop.

To avoid being bitten by ticks

To avoid being bitten by ticks, people who work or play outdoors need to take precautions that weren’t necessary in the past. Avoiding ticks is the first order of business. Ticks “quest” at the tips of tall grass or brush, waiting to cling to the next warm body that brushes against them. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend using products containing 20-30% DEET on exposed skin. (Unfortunately, research indicates herbal repellants range in effectiveness between 0% to about 30% as compared to DEET.) Clothing, footwear and gear such as tents can be treated with products containing the active ingredient Permethrin. Hikers should stick to marked trails.
