Finding Shelter in an Emergency

Beyond clothing shelter is anything that protects a person from environmental hazards such as rain, wind, lightning, snow, cold, insects, and more.   Shelter helps you maintain a 98.6 body temperature, stay dry, and warm.   When most people think of shelter in the wilderness they imagine a tent, spend enough time outdoors and you’ll find that in most situations you aren’t carrying or have easy access to a tent.  Think about the last time you hiked, were on the summit of a mountain, skied, or…

Hi Ali,


Thanks for the nice welcome!  That is not a picture of Shasta, a mere 2, 100 hill in Fremont, CA.  Mission Peak.  It was a training hike.  I appreciate the offer to post my "Climb For Hope 2011" to benefit 100% the Children's Hunger Fund.  This will help starving and impoverished children from around the world.  I have a goal of $5,000 and every little bit helps.  I will be climbing Mt. Rainer in August 2011.  Thanks again and I look forward to getting to know the FitClimb community better in the coming months/years.  Best regards.  Mark Rickert
