A few days ago I received a short email from a teenager who has done some survival training with me. The message was quick and simple, but the answer is another matter.

Fear is not always a bad thing. It is often a very valuable survival instinct. But when left unchecked, fear can lead to the irrational state of panic, which can manifest itself in diverse ways.

A 46-year-old woman, Paula Lane of Gardnerville, Nevada, is recovering now from a terrifying week spent stranded in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Tragically, her boyfriend, Roderick Clifton, 44, did not survive their traumatic circumstances.
The couple was reported missing on November 29, after they left Citrus Heights, California, but never made it home to Nevada.

This remote area has little to no cell phone coverage, and when their Jeep became stuck in a sudden snowstorm, Lane and Clifton became stranded. [ Read Full Post ]
Creating a splint can give an injured person a lot of relief, and prevent further injury. As with most things, though, there are right ways and wrong ways to apply a splint to an injury. Here are five common mistakes to avoid, if you ever have to tie a splint on your buddy or yourself.
