Whether You Day Hike Or Trek, There Is Some Woodsy Wisdom You Need To Know.

Folksy but wise advice from Maine Guides.

Several years ago, we stumbled on a unique resource to surviving in the woods if you become lost.  Now you might think that is probably something that won’t happen to you because you are either experienced, well-equipped, cautious about where you wander, or just lucky.

Well, getting lost out there happens all too often in the woods, even with prepared, expert hikers and campers. Unexpected stuff comes down: GPS batteries die, injuries happen, weather changes, equipment fails, that luck of yours runs out, and knowing how to make it out is a critical set of skills.

The State of Maine has published a truly valuable guide for surviving in the woods if you are lost.  It’s called, “You Alone In The Maine Woods,” and it is billed as a practical guide to woods comfort, safety, and survival.  It’s been updated frequently since the original 1972 edition by various authors from the Maine Warden Service and Search and Rescue from the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

We offer it here as a PDF download for you and your friends and family for all readers who visit SeniorsSkiing.com. Notice its whimsical but clear illustrations and straight-forward advice.  Typical Maine.
