Fear - For anyone faced with a wilderness emergency survival situation, fear is a normal reaction. Unless an emergency situation has been anticipated, fear is generally followed by--------

 

Some experts suggest seven different problems arise. How many can you name?

Panic, pain, cold, thirst, hunger, fatigue, boredom and lonliness? They teach that in SERE.

 

I had a "Gunny" in the military that told me once:

 

Courage is the ability to perform your duties properly when you are scared out of your wits.

 

I've always like that.

There's some truth to this. I wear pantyhose-like material on my forearms when I race enduros in cold weather. It reduces a symptom called "arm pump". It's where your forearms have so much blood in the forearms the muscle expands beyond the membrane's capacity and you quickly lose strength. By wearing these "arm socks" it regulates blood flow reducing arm pump.

That is exactly correct Rocky on the question. ::)

 

I think HazeyWolf told me he saw in hoods hoodlums that Ron wears a pair of panty hose. My wife says they put leg socks on patients to keep blood build up in their legs and it helps to prevent blood clots.

 

Good job Rocky. :thumbsup: :salute:

Any of the above. None of the actions will endanger you, and any of the actions will be either entertaining or non-threatening. Porcupines are not agressive unless threatened directly and at very close proximity. Its the "tail swat" that you need to be wary of.

They say walk away at a normal pace because (what you said) any of the answeres are good except D. They cant throw their quills.

 

So that is correct Blue. :thumbsup:

By "entertaining" I was referring to "D"! If you've ever seen a porky swat that tail with lightening quick speed, you can understand why people believe they throw their quills.

EEEWWWWWWWW!!!!!!  I hate leeches!  And worms!  Yucky!!!

 

Okay, I would guess "C" is the right thing to do.  I know in the movies, the tough guys always burn them off with a cigarette, but with a lighter?  :woot: :rofl:  I wanna see THAT!

The best answer is B.

 

Never burn, squeeze, pull or pour salt on a leech to get it off. It may regurgitate bacteria from its gut back into the wound and cause infection. Push the leech sideways with your finger to make him lose his suction grip. Leeches have two suckers>one to suck blood and another to hold on. As soon as the leech lets loose his blood sucker(the narrow end of his body) flick him off with you finger.
