Always be Prepared

Never leave with an empty stomach. Always try to eat before leaving and always tell someone exactly when and where you are going. Bring with you basic survival gear, such as a knife, matches, cord, compass, water, a mirror and a whistle.

None of these things are heavy and won’t take much space in your backpack. Try always carrying them with you even though, it’s supposed to be just a half-day hike.

Take your phone with you. Even when you are trying to get away for a few hours, don’t ever leave without any communication device. If you don’t want to be bothered, turn it off, but in a risky situation you can use it and call for help right away.
