Cures for cabin fever

Some folks think that there is no such thing as Cabin Fever. They are dead wrong. If Alferd Packer was still around, they could ask him about it. Good old Alferd (that's really how he spelled his name) was the noted cannibal who ate several of his companions after being trapped with them while snowbound in Colorado in 1874. Along about this time of year I start getting fidgety and look longingly out the window every few minutes. Although I'm an incorrigible outdoors enthusiast, even I don't really enjoy standing in the pouring rain unless its hunting ...

Outdoor emergency preparedness

I believe the outdoors is remarkably safe, yet no matter what you do, there are risks involved. It doesn't matter if you are commuting to work, or driving a forklift on the job, teaching in a classroom, there are risks involved & you could get hurt. You & I are probably much more likely to get in an auto accident, or slip & fall at work than we are likely to get injured while out fishing, hunting, or hiking. The difference is that outdoor pursuits are often solitary in nature and you are often in a remote location far from medical help ...
