The Bush Travel Guide

Health and Safety

When traveling in the Bush, you should never head out without a decent first-aid kit; you can be a very long way from help out here. The main concern, though, is hypothermia. Watch out for each other. The only other prevalent hazard is bugs—until you've experienced it, it's hard to understand just how thick the mosquitoes and other things that bite can get. Bring plenty of DEET.
