In like a lamb...

 

Well we all know the old saying "In like a Lion, out like a Lamb" and it's vice versa. I write this as a freezing drizzle just started roaring down seconds ago outside the window. We were treated to an early warm up and now the temps are dropping again. It's not all bad though as I see pictures posted of new adventures cachers are sharing and warm weather on it's way back soon enough.

 

As we start finding ourselves on the trail more and more we remind each other to be prepared for the hazards of the trail. Sunblock, Bug Spray (yep, the ticks are back!), Water, an Emergency Poncho along with other prepatory items are great, but don't forget the single best piece of safety is information. Let your loved ones know where you're heading out to. If you change your destination, leave a voicemail or text to let someone know. Go caching with a friend if you can, but just stay in touch with the world while you're out "escaping" for an afternoon (especially if you're going with young children!!).  Review your emergency plan with your kids and caching partners, too.  Let people know if you have any medical condition they should be aware of like allergies.  Something as simple as eating your trail mix and not realizing the person you're with is highly allergic to it could ruin a great afternoon.

 

Think first, have a plan and be safe out there friends!  Enjoy the return of longer days and more caches to be found :)
