The beloved star of our in-book feature "The Predicament," Lunchbox the Cadaver Sniffing Dog, brings you a round-up of this week's outdoor predicaments, disasters, and near-misses

Hey kids, Lunchbox here: I'm back at my new home on Mondays, which suits me just fine because on Fridays I was just as itching to get outside and play as you all are. It also means I've had time to run off all my energy before digesting a full week's worth of predicaments.

With that in mind, let's get to it: Read Full Story...

Lunchbox's Disaster Roundup, 01-08

The beloved star of our in-book feature "The Predicament," Lunchbox the Cadaver Sniffing Dog, brings you a round-up of this week's outdoor predicaments, disasters, and near-misses

Lunchbox here: Unfortunately, 2010 started with no shortage of outdoor disasters—holidays off means people have more time to play in the snow, which means more chances for injury.

But we're going to kick off survival in 2010 today by taking a look at just one incident. This nuts-o video features two hikers way out of their depth, and they nearly meet a disastrous end in an unidentified location (BACKPACKER contributor and Mountain World/Colorado Mountain Journal impresario Dougald McDonald, who brought this vid to our attention, speculates that it could be Zion):



That. Was. Close. Read Full Story...

The beloved star of our in-book feature "The Predicament," Lunchbox the Cadaver Sniffing Dog, brings you a round-up of this week's outdoor predicaments, disasters, and near-misses

Lunchbox here: I keep trying to finish my list for Santa (Beggin' Strips, a new leash, couple of bones), but it's tough because I keep getting called back into the field to rescue someone—or worse. Let's take a look at some recent outdoor mishaps and see if we can't learn some lessons before heading out on our weekend's wilderness adventures. Read Full Story...

Lunchbox's Disaster Round-Up, 12-04

The beloved star of our in-book feature "The Predicament," Lunchbox the Cadaver Sniffing Dog, brings you a round-up of this week's outdoor predicaments, disasters, and near-misses

The holidays are upon us! That means lots of family, friends, and presents (I'm asking for a new rawhide, m'self). But all that warm togetherness means some people will get the urge to share their love of wilderness with loved ones—just as it's getting colder and darker.

Let's take a look at this week's outdoor predicaments and see if we can encourage some preparedness and foresight before the holiday season gets in full swing:

The beloved star of our in-book feature "The Predicament," Lunchbox the Cadaver Sniffing Dog, brings you a round-up of this week's outdoor predicaments, disasters, and near-misses

Today is particularly inauspicious—it's Friday the 13th. Hopefully everyone is being careful out there on their wild adventures, because the dangers of Mother Nature are far more real than any hockey-mask-wearing serial killer. Let's take a look at this week's outdoor predicaments and see if we can't learn a little something (you too, Jason—remember the lake?): Read Full Story...

The beloved star of our in-book feature "The Predicament," Lunchbox the Cadaver Sniffing Dog, brings you a round-up of this week's outdoor predicaments, disasters, and near-misses

Ahoy-hoy, Lunchbox here: People can't seem to go a week without getting hurt in the backcountry. It means I'll get to stay up to my ears in kibble, but it also means that some of you could be a little more careful when you head into the wild.
