The best outdoor equipment in the world is useless if you don’t know how to use it. Knowledge of key outdoor skills and when to use them always trumps the best gear.
We all do our best to be prepared in case of an emergency; however, unexpected events that we have no control over do occur. When disaster strikes, we frequently take medical care for granted.
