The Alps 2016. A small fire with its glow separated me from impenetrable darkness. In the background, all I could hear was the disturbing sound of a sliding rock avalanche, and each murmur seemed to be a bear that had smelled my provisions. Years later, I still cannot imagine that night without a fire that was lit before. Hearth, i.e. the place where the fire will burn, must be secured against the uncontrolled spread of flames. Leaves, sticks and other flammable objects lying on the ground must be removed to form a circle of bare earth. Particular attention should be paid to dry grass that can spread fire in no time.
In wild terrain, the weather conditions can change suddenly and unexpectedly, so I try to dress in a layered system. Thanks to this, I am able to prevent cooling down or overheating of the body, reacting immediately to any weather breakdown. The clothing layers allow you to regulate the body temperature by pulling them off or putting on new ones. In a life-threatening situation, it is extremely important, because this way you can find a safe line between excessive sweating (overheating) and body cooling.
