|What is the most dangerous or stressful situation you have been in out in the bush?
For example; when I was around 11 or 12 years old I went with my dad, brother, and some family friends on my first extended backpacking trip in the Badlands of South Dakota. The entire trip was around a week and a half. One evening we made camp and as I needed to relieve myself, I grabbed a small trowel we had brought for the purpose, and walked a ways into the woods for some privacy. And as you might guess, I made the mistake of not checking behind me to mark my return trip, so after I had finished my business, I realized I didn't have an idea of how to get back to our camp. Then to make matters worse, my first instinct was to panic, and take off running. Thank God I stopped at some point and realized that I took a walkie talkie in my pocket. I try to call my dad with this walkie talkie. Fortunately, he called back, we kept calling to each other until I found my way back. When I came out into a clearing I realized I had completely overshot our camp and had been headed out into the middle of nowhere. Also, it was nearly sunset, and I had no other equipment with me besides the trowel. It impressed on me at an early age that small mistakes in the wilderness can cascade into serious situations very very quickly.
More than ten years passed, I have my boys. In recently family camping trip , walkie talkies are our necessary camping gears for my boys in case any accidents like my experience in my teen ages.
I bought these walkie talkies from Amazon. Recently, these walkie talkies seems in promotion. If you also looking for camping gears, I recommend these walkie talkies:
