Food Safety While Hiking or Camping
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Sometimes you just have to get out of the house and walk around outside. It is hard to resist a beautiful day when the sun is shining. You may want to hike for just a few hours, or you may want to camp for a few days. You wouldn't have to pack a lot of food for a short hike. If you were going camping you would need more food.
 
2     The main rule is to keep hot foods hot and cold food cold. Follow common sense when taking food with you. To keep food cold, you can freeze juice boxes. The juice boxes will thaw during the day and keep your food cold at the same time.
 
3     You should always take water with you to drink. You can't depend on water from lakes and streams to be safe to drink. Just because the water looks clean doesn't mean it's safe. Always start with a full bottle of water. Carry more with you if you have room. If you need to refill the bottles, you should only use water that has been tested.
 
4     The best way to make more drinking water is to boil any water that you find. Bring the water to a rolling boil. Then let the water keep boiling for one minute.
 
5     You can also use tablets to clean water. The tablets will kill most, but not all, of the dangerous things that are in the water. A water filter also needs to be used to make the water completely safe. You can buy these items at a camping supply store.
