Walker, canoeist, sailer, glider pilot, rock climber and father of 3.

Middle son of a polar explorer, and grew up in the wilds of Orkney and the Falklands - so take after my father in outdoors pursuits.

Happy in the middle of mountains or forests in a tent :-)

comment Has anyone tried making their own make-shift Hydrapack?
I think it could be a fun project and have upvoted you... but I still would not use one in real life:-)

Considering I can by one for less than a couple of cups of coffee I'd rather not rely for hydration on something that might break when I need it.

comment Is it really that unsafe to touch a stranger's wound?
Now that I don't know. Sorry. The US and UK are scary though, in the putting management of lawsuits and health & safety risks before rescuing or helping people. We even have examples of fire/police inactivity (through following policy blindly) allowing individuals to die.

Additional to Benedikt's answer, in litigious countries (such as the US and some others) you could save someone's life and then be sued for damaging them. Seriously.

Weda - in general though, stemming blood loss is more important than bone/muscle/ligament injuries, so if a tight tourniquet is required to stop someone bleeding out and it may damage a muscle - so be it.

While you can do a lot of sports at four months parasailing is not considered a safe sport. There are various risks which should concern you, especially if she has not tried it before.
