Wilderness Survival… A few years ago, I saw a documentary called The Story of Dick Proenneke ~ Alone in the Wilderness. It is a very good example off going back to basics… Treat yourself and see how he builds a log cabin, but listen close to all his wise words.
When I, myself now go walking somewhere high up in the mountains, looking at where it is safe to put my hiking boot, I think about his words. He said that one tends to be more careful when you are all by yourself. When you are two people, you tend to relax, loose concentration and then get hurt.
The bigger the group, the bigger the risk that the individual relies on other people to keep him safe.
Just a thought…
