The days are shorter this time of year.

  • Plan ahead and bring a flashlight just in case you are caught out after dark.

  • Stay together. Many of our searches are a result of hikers not staying with the group or adults not watching the children. This is also true for caregivers of the elderly or a person with special needs.
