My response, “Then I’ll buy a lighter sleeping bag, tent and take a smaller can of bug repellent.” No matter what they say, I’m not leaving that can of bear spray behind.
I’m not too proud to admit my fears. I’ve listed them in order from highest to lowest.
- Mountain lion attack
- Man attack (rape)
- Bear or moose encounter.
- Stepping on a rattlesnake.
- Falling and breaking a bone and not being able to get help.
- Running out of water and not being able to find a stream
A quick scan of my list will reveal that the things that are most likely to happen are at the bottom and yet they are the things I’m least worried about.
What are your outdoor fears?
Tell me in the comment section what they are and how you pack for them.
