Bleeding

Because the first cut isn't always the deepest

While climbing gloves, hiking boots and spelunking armor will help save your skin, even the most shielded nomad will end up with cuts or scrapes during an outdoor adventure. The dense forests of Kouchibouguac National Park have scratched many a hiker, climbers routinely return from Glacier National Park with a few telltale scars, and the slip of a Swiss army knife can draw blood. Knowing how to treat a cut and recognizing when it's time to hightail it to the hospital can make sure your scars are badges of honor, not reminders of a near-death experience.
