Episode 77: Should A Backpacker Take A Wilderness First Aid Class?

On this episode we ask the question: Should a Backpacker Take a Wilderness First Aid Class? Through our own experience, we share our opinion and what we have seen and learned out on the trail. It may persuade you to look into how it may change the way you hike.

  • You never think it will happen to  you
  • “How many times were you stung”?
