Survival, Hiking, Backpacking and Emergencies


I have spent years solo hiking and exploring..   Personally, I've never had anything bad happen..not even a flat tire but I follow some rules and guidelines; I make certain I'm prepared before I launch. 

As a woman who takes off on 5500 mile, 14 day trips in her Jeep routinely...with her gear...into "No Man's Land" (a little humor here), I have had some close calls but I stopped and thought through the problem.  Panic is a killer.  I love going into the wilderness and emerging safe and sound.   Independent is what some call me. I get to go places and do things, see things many only dream of doing.   It gives me personal satisfaction to know I can take care of myself in literally any situation and I pride myself in my wilderness skills.  

Sleeping under the stars, hiking without another soul around for miles, watching the wildlife and resetting my daily routines around sunrise and sunset, centers me.  It is freedom. The landscapes are eye candy.  I've hiked to the top of a volcano, hiked  the jungles of Costa Rica, lived at the back door of Rocky Mountain National Park west of the Continental Divide-in a cabin-for three years, hiked and explored the deserts and plateaus of the Southwest and Four Corners area on my own.  I like the challenge of it all.  The world is a beautiful place to explore. 

Enjoy your trips in safety. Knowledge is your key.
