Worst-Case Scenario

I've come across a few of these very popular "Worst-Case Scenario", how to books over the last few days in my book hunting.  I believe I may have both the "Survival Handbook" and "Parenting" editions.

Here is a skill you might need while hiking in the Mountains here in Montana:

1 - Lie still and quiet.
2 - Stay where you are and do not climb a tree to escape a bear.
3 - If you are lying still and the bear attacks, strike back with anything you can.

     What to Do if You See a Bear 
  • Make your presence known by talking loudly, clapping, singing...
  • Keep children close at hand...
  • There is no guaranteed minimum safe distance from a bear: the farther, the better.
  • If you are in a car, remain in your vehicle...
Read the whole article on pages 50 - 53 of "The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook" by Joshua Piven and David Borgenicht.
