    1. Plan your trip and inform others about the route you have selected.
    2. Adapt the planned routes according to ability and conditions.

    4. Be prepared for bad weather and frost, even on short trips.

    7. Use a map and a compass. Always know where you are.
    8. Don’t be ashamed to turn around.
    9. Conserve your energy and seek shelter if necessary.
