While many of our outdoor activities are fun and exciting, let’s not forget that we are in the great outdoors and that we must be cognizant of dangers that may lurk out of sight.
Heed the warnings in the area as hidden wildlife that might be more than one can handle.
But seriously, you don’t want to get injured esp in a place that may not have immediate medical care. I don’t play with snakes but I definitely know anti-venom stuff is really hard to find.
Also worth noting that if your pet cannot handle the stresses of other animals and people (aka cannot act accordingly), consider leaving them home. No one likes a pet that thrashes up the place.
It is also understood that you teach your kids about the safety and dangers of wildlife.
Do NOT become the news story yourself. Educate the youth of tomorrow with good information.
More stuff tomorrow!
