Backcountry Rule #1: Leave a Note

Note Saved Hiker Stranded from Knee Injury

Want to know the number one way to make sure you survive your outdoor adventure? Take it from Sol’s very good friend, bicycle expert Dave Dean:


We want you to have many more encounters with mother nature – to challenge your body, connect with the outdoors, and gain spiritual insights. Your note should explain where you’re going, what time you left, and what time you’ll be back. That way, if anything unexpected does happen, Search and Rescue will know exactly where to come looking for you, your chances of survival will increase exponentially, and you’ll be back to your outdoor workouts in no time.

Me and Sol are very glad you’re still with us, Dave!
