A Few Things Rangers Use to Brave Na­ture’s Worst

Popular Science - - TALES FIELD -

1 Wool Ev­ery­thing

Wool pulls wa­ter away from skin, so you stay warm when things get soggy. Socks, shirt, long un­der­wear, etc.

2 Lots of Choco­late

It’s the best trail-mix in­gre­di­ent by far. And maybe it’ll dis­tract you from the 40-mileper-hour ash winds.

3 Poop Trowel

You gotta dig 6 inches down in the dirt for num­ber two. Re­ally. No one cares how cold you are. And pack out your dirty toi­let pa­per.

4 Tent In­cense

Sure, it smells groovy. But it’ll also help ward off pesky mos­qui­toes —and some rangers swear by its abil­ity to “keep the funk out.”
