      It can be easy to get a little lost in a 100-acre forest, and that can quickly turn into a bigger problem if you're not careful. Ever since a friend recommend Gaia to me, I haven't stopped using it. Gaia allows me to download several different types of maps, and use them offline with GPS location as a wonderful back up to tradition navigation skills

      It can be tempting to eat a few berries you’ve found in a bush, especially after you’ve been walking through the woods for 2 or 3 hours. Before you eat any wild fruit, identify the plant by taking a picture of it and find out instantly if it is edible or poisonous.
