Things not to do while hiking

13 Mar

I want to start this post by mentioning a few things to NOT do while out hiking in the woods. If you come upon a broken glass bottle and the earth is soft DO NOT try to push it in with your bare hands or with your foot (no I do not care how thick your soles are) they will never be thick enough.

My husbands cousin decided to push a broken bottle in with her bare hands well with the weather and who knows how long it has been outside.  The glass was brittle and basically shattered in her hands.  She sliced her wrist and had to have several stitches plus might have possible nerve damage in two fingers.  She was complaining of numbness in her thumb and forefinger.  Hopefully the hand specialist that my mother in law referred her to was able to help or will be able to help.
