How to Prepare For Your Region's Worst-Case Scenario

How to Prepare For Your Region's Worst-Case Scenario Evacuation Route Sign

Did you know that September is National Preparedness month in the U.S.? While it may seem overwhelming to prepare for anything that could possibly go wrong, the truth is with relatively minimal effort, you can prepare for the most likely types of natural disasters in your part of the country. That is the sentiment behind National Preparedness month. Have a plan in place so that you can be prepared and self-sufficient for at least 72 hours in case a disaster hits where you live. The more people who do this, the less overwhelmed emergency services are in a worst-case-scenario situation. Then they can focus all their efforts on those who need help the most. If you need motivation to start prepping, think of it as a future-kindness to the emergency service workers in your area.

MAXIMIZING ADVENTURE TRAVEL IN THE UTAH DESERT

MAXIMIZING ADVENTURE TRAVEL IN THE UTAH DESERT Starry Night

Imagine a quaint, red rock western town that used to be one of the most isolated spots in the lower 48.  What comes to mind?  You may be thinking Moab or Sedona, but the town I am talking about is further off the beaten path than either of those: it is a small pioneer town in Southern Utah by the name of Kanab.

Kanab is located smack between Zion, Bryce, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. It is a fantastic jumping off point for many of the Colorado Plateau’s incredible national parks; it is also home to me personally, and to the guides of Dreamland Safari Tours – a hardy bunch of most excellent backcountry desert guides with decades of experience in delighting guests by creating access to hard-to-reach locations like the Wave, White Pocket, and more.

HOW I OPTIMIZED MY GEAR (AND MY MIND) FOR THE IDITAROD TRAIL

HOW I OPTIMIZED MY GEAR (AND MY MIND) FOR THE IDITAROD TRAIL life-on-iditarod-trail

Imagine wanting to ski 350 miles through Alaska – next week, without much training or real experience on cross-country skis.  That’s the situation I found myself in a few months ago:  I was signed up to ski the Iditarod Trail Invitational, a 350-mile race through the interior of Alaska.  The only challenge was that I am neither a skier, nor had I ever completed a 350 mile non-stop race — and in true “me” fashion I didn’t have the time to properly train for this behemoth of an adventure, either.
