For as much time as I’ve spent in the Great Outdoors, moments of scary–danger–whoa I’m in trouble– have been relatively few, thankfully.
Today’s writing prompt is brought to us by Whistles for Life.
It’s time to share your scary Outdoor moment via writing.
Scary moments can be 5 minutes of losing one’s bearings in a dense forest. Or driving along a mountain road and helping someone you come across in need. Did your boat start to sink?
Have you ever been injured in the Outdoors and had to find a means to get out and get help? Do you have safety measures you use every time you head out on an adventure?
Share your story or maybe share your personal outdoor safety devices, plans, etc. Do you have any advice you could pass along to readers that can help them if they find themselves in one of those sticky situations?
And for this Outdoor Writing Prompt,
Whistles for Life is going to give 3 Outdoor Bloggers
A whistle they can clip on their belt loop, or hunting pack, or hiking pack, or life preserver or ?
We’ll run this writing prompt through next Thursday and pick 3 outdoor bloggers that participated to receive a whistle and let you know via the OBN Friday notes on 11/18. As always on a writing prompt, once you have written your blog post, be sure to come back here and add it to the linky system below so that everyone can visit your post to read.
