Love hurts, but your outdoor adventure shouldn't
Unless you're swaddled in bubble wrap, chances are you'll get a few bumps and bruises on even the softest adventure. And since the outdoor lifestyle poses more health threats than a trip to the theater, you need to plan accordingly. Whether you're climbing a mountain , sailing the high seas or spelunking where the sun don't shine, know the potential threats and take a few preventive measures to ensure you return home with a smile, not stitches.
While outdoor injuries can range from minor discomfort to excruciating pain, prevention is always our choice. But if treatment is needed, some quick and dirty knowledge will help you spot an emergency quickly and respond accordingly.
