+OZ2CPU Posted February 22, 2012 Share Posted February 22, 2012 As a geocacher, or any other active person how go out alot, we go into unknown areas with wild life, or other threads. a stick can be used to handle a crasy dog, or a snake. if you are Bruce Lee I guess you just use your hand and leg skils. bigger weapons could be needed to self protect against a bear or aligators or a group of hippies, I dont know.. I think it is when you least expect it, you find your self in a situation where some sort of protection could make you feel safer. I try to avoid danger, so I dont carry any weapons at all, and it is also not legal where I live. But I must admit a few times it came to my mind. like oh darn what if this and that happens, what can I do to get out and away unharmed. we tried to grap our kids and run to the car as fast as we could, we really felt they could end their life as a snack for a big angry dog, just put outside where we where searching for a cache, the fence was almost non existing, that was along time ago.. yesterday I was out alone looking for a cache (offcourse) and some how got very close to a house with a big garden, again a very badly made fence, and suttently 3-4 very big and angry dogs came out, barking and jumping up the fence.. man I got scared, and ran away, I could not have done anything to protect my self if they got out. --- Anyway.. The questions are: do you carry self protection ? what kind ? what is it you are most affraight of out there ? what is the chance for it to actually happen ? Quote Link to comment
