Most Popular Ways to Die in the Wilderness
The most common ways to die outdoors may not be what usually comes to mind. Many people worry about bears and other mean creatures. Fact is, the most common outdoor deaths are attributable to one and only one living thing: YOU.

By far, hands down, what bumps you off in the wilderness are the decisions you make. Getting just a little to close to the edge. Taking on the next higher class of whitewater. Climbing a mountain when you are out of shape. Refusing to turn back when the weather turns bad.
The survivor observes and learns. Study the most popular ways to die in the wilderness and learn from the misfortune and mistakes of others.

Think and act smart. Always be aware of your surroundings and potential hazards. This will serve you well and keep you from becoming a member of the top ten list of the Non-Survivors Club.

What are your thoughts?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not into your own understanding, Proverbs 3:5
