When you walk through the forest youre always looking for things. You look where you put your feet, you look where your hands are going. Youre looking for snakes, youre looking for spiders, youre looking for ants, especially ant-defended plants, which can be especially nastythese very small ants, but getting a LOT of them on you! Youre looking for wasps nests, youre looking for spines. You dont put your hand anywhere without looking where it is going. You dont place your hand on a tree without looking at the tree. Its really just common sense. Its really just being smart when you are working in the forest.
I always carry a snake bite kit, for if I was bitten by a viper. I always have a pen and paper. I carry a candle, because if youre trying to light a fire in the rainforest, its a much easier way than using matches. I carry a small compass. So these are some of the everyday things of just making sure that you are covered. We always carry plenty of waterits a good idea! Although it rains and youre in a rainforest, its very hot and you lose a lot of water. You can get heat exhaustion very quickly working the forest, so you just need to be aware of what youre eating. Making sure you eat plenty of salt, make sure youre drinking plenty of water primarily.
