Whenever you’re out in the wild, just be careful. Try and take some experts with you that might know what to do if something happens and if you need to defend yourself. If you have experts on the trip then you might also be able to sleep much better at night. Another thing to remember, running is sometimes not the best thing to do just like playing dead is not always the correct answer. This is another reason as to why you don’t want to go out by yourself.
