Ten Things To Know About The Wilderness !

  1. …    What is THE WILDERNESS ? Wilderness can be described as any area of our planet that is uncontrolled by human beings . It is a part of this Earth , where human beings have not built any structures or modified the terrain in any way , shape or form . It is untouched natural Earth .
  2. … To the uninitiated , the wilderness conjures up images of wild animals or the destructive forces of nature . To those of us who spend a large part of our lives in the outdoors , it is a place of beauty and wonder . Every new trail we find , every new valley we travel always leads to a place of ” newness “ .
  3. … Preparing for a day hike or a wilderness adventure of a few days or weeks requires the same mindset . In most cases , a well planned trip is less chaotic and more rewarding . One of the main reasons for venturing into the outdoors is usually to leave the stress and chaos of our day to day work world . Be prepared !
  4. … Wilderness adventures include Camping , Mountaineering , Hunting and Fishing . Canoeing , Kayaking and Prospecting for minerals or precious stones are all included in this  endless variety of outdoor activities . Think of volcanoes , rivers , mountains , plains and forests . Hot springs and geysers ; none of these can be created by humans , yet they are ours to enjoy .
  5. … Any wilderness activity or adventure you participate in , will usually require some form of outdoortech and detailed planning . A canoe trip down a slow-flowing river will require different equipment , than that required for  fishing in a boat at your favorite lake . Prepare a list of all you will need to survive your adventure in relative safety and comfort , once you leave civilization . Maintain and upgrade this very important ‘list’ of items .
  6. … Since you are now in the Wilderness , you have to be completely self-sufficient . There is no one there to help you and You will have to do it all by yourself . Can you handle every situation you will be faced with . Unless you shun all human contact , someone should know where you are . Satellite phones and In-Reach units help maintain contact with the civilized world back home .
  7. The wilderness is God’s creation . It is a place of great beauty . Many of our greatest achievements have been inspired by the ” wildness ” of the Earth . Writers , musicians , architects and common people like ” Me ” have all been inspired by this creation .
  8. …  Once you leave the security of  your house  or apartment and are about to enter the wilderness  , nothing is more frustrating than suddenly remembering you forgot the few items that are central to your trip . This is why making a LIST – and constantly maintaining this list – will ensure that your trips into the outdoors become enjoyable and less frustrating .
  9. … Outdoor Tech is key to surviving mostly all of your wilderness adventures . Cutting tools , fire starting , shelter , clothing and nutrition are basic . GPS , compasses , spotting scopes , binoculars , and stoves fill our packs . Durability and reliability are of major concern , … and don’t forget about the ” weight” .
  10. … Venturing into the wilderness can be for work or for recreation . For most of us it is something we undertake for relaxation and recreation . Since we are not usually backed by large corporations and all funding comes from our workplace activities , the Outdoor Tech we bring with us should still be of sufficient quality to help ensure our safe return to our loved ones .
