      Don't attempt to traverse a raging river at first snow melt ... with nothing but some Wal-Mart floaties and true grit.
      Don't hike through high desert terrain without ample water or in 10 year old sneakers (that just may melt 6 miles into your hike).
      When crossing mountain ranges by foot, stick to spurs not draws. Better to be spurred onward than have your end ever drawing nigh.
      If you decide to climb up or down a steep slope, bring a partner to hold the rope and make double sure the knot is tied proper and your partner doesn't suffer from ADHD.
      Never announce that you're a treasure hunter To anyone. Ever.. "Wildlife biologist" is a much safer bet.
      Always wear bear spray when north of Tijuana, even when you sleep. Did I say ALWAYS?

        Just a few words of wisdom for those of you out searching deep in the Rocky Mountains. Please learn the difference between black bear scat and brown bear scat. Black bear scat tends to be smaller droppings in a tightly formed cluster. Brown bear scat is A LOT larger and tends to smell rather 'peppery.' Often it contain at least a few little round silvery bells in it.

          I seriously could out run that fat bear, and with a sandwich in my backpack to boot.

            Hahaha! THAT would make a great scene in a movie! Slowest foot-race / bear-chase EVER. Like THE EDGE meets Blazing Saddles.

            Not sure if you've seen them Twilight movies. I sorta hope not, but that actor who morphed into a bad-ass alpha wolf (he got all RIPPED with muscle for the role)
            sorta petered-out afterwards and hit the Pringles a little too hard. Fame can do weird things to ya. I try to refrain from partaking in cruel humor,
            but I know the kid'll BOUNCE back, and this one made me laugh ... (that poor wolf!)

                  Especially if they added a toll gate when you enter the Wilderness. Problem is somebody would have to go back for change. Gosh dern it.
                  I really like that part in the movie. Damn I like every part.
