These days when my brainpower is all but used up to focus on swim/bike/run, you’ll have to excuse my lack of and abbreviated blogging. But, I stumbled across this on the interwebs the other day and wanted to share. This flyer from the US Forest Service circa 1946 has some advice for hikers when they are lost in the woods. As I was reading through this, I noted how poignant the opening paragraphs are for the endurance athlete as well. Take a look for yourself.
Note: The rules which are listed after the paragraphs I outlined are great for being lost in the woods – but not so great for endurance competitions. Except the part about not quitting. That part is true.
