Dear Bwana, I recently got a little turned around while mushroom hunting up by Florence. I was finally able to get out to a road, but the experience has made the fear of being lost prominent in my mind. Do you have any suggestions on how I can be a little more safe in country I’m not familiar with? Thanks, Travis
