Bear safety is an extremely mindful technique that you can use if you are out in the backcountry and you’re hiking or trekking in the woods Bears are very aggressive and could kill you, or tear up your campsite, or eat all your food. If bears find your campsite and are proceeding towards ou, you need to play dead, covering your neck, belly, etc. showing that you aren’t a threat. If that doesn’t work, fight back! Keeping your food at least two hundred feet away from your campsite s very important. It keeps the bear away from your location, however, the bear can get to the food so I recommend the bear canister or the bear bag. You just have to put the bear canister on the ground, but you have to hang the bear bag on a tree limb 10-12 feet above the ground, 6-8 feet away from the tree trunk, and at least 4 feet below the limb you are hanging the bag on. You have to put every scented thing in our campsite that will attract bears in your canister or the bag, for example: toothpaste, food, etc. Be safe!
Beans and seeds are very healthy for your body. Some beans and seeds come in a rich variety and in minerals and vitamins. Our bodys need iron, potassium, vitamin C, K, A, and a lot more minerals and vitamins to survive.
Fruits, vegetables, and lots of other plants have enzymes that replace the enzymes that we lose every day, although plants lose enzymes when they’re cut from their source.
Inorganic fruits have been sprayed by chemicals made by people to keep bugs off it and is quite unhealthy. Organic fruits are very healthy and are full of enzymes.
Seeds and beans are very healthy for your body. Here are a few: Alfalfa beans have just about every vitamin and mineral that can keep you alive; and yet, they are just over one millimeter long! Adzuki beans are rich in produce. Mung beans contain iron, vitamin C, and potassium, which is very healthy for your body. Sesame seeds are often known to be put on various food choices, and again, another very healthy seed.
I did a project and if you’re going to do it, you’ll need a glass jar, a cheesecloth, a rubber band, and of course, seeds or beans. If you are using very small seeds or beans, cover the bottom of the jar, and if you are using very big beans or seeds. Then fill the jar half full with water. let it sit for a while and then drain it. Keep up this process until the beans or seeds start to sprout.
Honey is also good for you, especially wild honey. Bees make the honey that we have now from nectar. Wild Honey has been known to have antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antifungal. It has also been known to heal a lot of people and is a great medicine.
You need to drink a lot of water per day to stay healthy, but how much water should you drink per day? Well, first you need to determine your weight and then divide that number by two and then that number is how many fluid ounces you need to drink each day. Your body is also very close to being made of 70% water. There are also many ways to lose water including sweating, talking, breathing, etc. Bottled water is very unhealthy compared to tap water, which is way healthier than bottled water. We could dring too much water and could become fatal. Water can also heal heartburn, arthritis, back pain, and a lot more. My mom likes lemon water because it has vitamin C and keeps your body from getting sick and helps your liver get all the poison out of your body. I’m thankful for water.
Sugar is very unhealthy for the body and the brain. Sugar is so unhealthy, in fact, that it is probably the largest cause of sickness, pain, and disease on earth. Sugar comes in various types of food and candy. There are also different types of sugar, including Glutose, Maltose, Dextrose, and a whole lot more. Sugar is hard to resist because there are chemicals in your brain that when you taste sugar, you become addicted to it. Sugar also feeds the cancerous cells. Sugar is also hard to resist because it is in many things you buy fro the store. Some of the things we buy from the store that have sugar in them are BBQ sauce and jelly beans. They both have corn syrup and other bad sugars that are very bad for your body. My mom and dad don’t let me eat a lot of sugar, although a little sugar every now and then won’t hurt you.
If you are lost in the woods, forest, rainforest, etc. you will need a signaling device. There are many signaling devices, including automatic signal devices, manual signal devices, and short duration signal devices.
Automatic signal devices are devices that send a signal which another one picks up and tells it where the person is, that he needs help, and stuff like that. There are Electronic Position Indicating Radio Beacon, or for short, EPIRBs.
Manual signal devices are things like signal mirrors, whistles, flashlights, signal fires, flags, and laser flares. Signal mirrors are my favorite and are great during the daytime. Their reflection from the sun can be seen 50 miles away! That is farther than a whistle could be heard! During the nighttime, laser flares are great.
Short Duration signal devices are something like flares and smoke signals. They don’t last long but they are also great signal devices. They are not good during windy or rainy days, so I prefer getting a signal mirror or a laser flare.
Trekking is hiking for a long time. Even for a few days! An ax would not be a good idea if you were trekking, because it is heavy and bulky. A survival knife would be a great idea if you were hunting in case you needed to skin an animal or something. A multi-fool would be perfect for trekking in case you needed lots of different tasks to be done, for example, a knife to split kindle for a fire, bottle opener to obviously open bottles, a ruler in case someone needs to measure something. I prefer the micro multi-tool from Leatherman.com because it isn’t that heavy.
Camping is just as much fun as trekking, but I prefer camping. This time, bringing an ax is a great idea! it can split wood very quickly, especially the extreme performance axes from Fiskars.com These axes come in different sizes, but they have a superior blade design. It has more power at impact and it is virtually unbreakable, so I highly recommend buying one of these. Like in the earlier paragraph, a survival knife and a multi-tool are still a good idea to bring as I told you earlier.
