Get help planning your trip this summer
Our friends at the Mountain Safety Council have produced a great new tool that you can use to easily help plan your outdoor adventures this summer.
The Plan My Trip tool asks you to answer a few quick questions about what you're doing and where, and then it will give you any warnings or notices related to your plans. Plan My Trip then pulls all of the trip information, alert information and adds a packing list and trip recommendations into a shareable (email + Facebook), clickable and downloadable PDF.
MSC Chief Executive Mike Daisley says “It’s vital that everyone that heads outdoors this weekend plans well and tells someone where they are going. You don’t want to be a needle in the haystack if things go wrong.”
“We‘ve created a simple and efficient planning tool that also lets people ‘tell someone their plans’ in a modern way. This tool makes the planning and sharing process quick and easy. Ultimately, we’re focused on helping participants make it home safely.”
“Safety is the outcome of good planning, and good decision making. We’re hoping this tool will help facilitate both planning and decision making by alerting people to things they may not have realised they needed; like an avalanche forecast for tramping for instance,” he concluded.
