062-Personal safety on the trail

Show Notes

For new hikers it seems like there is so much to worry about. Getting lost, snakes and will you be warm enough are just some of the issues that can all be managed reasonably easily with a bit of practice and development of on-trail skills.

For many new hikers their biggest concern is one of personal safety. How safe will you be when out hiking and do I have to worry about my car at the trail head.  This episode discusses these issues and offers some suggestions for minimising personal safety risks on the trail.

You get to listen to a program of your choice, at a time of your choosing, and through your preferred technology e.g. the computer, a smart phone, or a tablet, etc.

Podcasts have the advantage over other types of media in that you can be doing other activities  such as driving to work or exercising while you listen.
