This weekend I SHOULD be going backpacking in the Shawnee National Forest. (very southern tip of Illinois). There has been lots of severe weather down there this week (tornados, hail, high winds) and that got me thinking.
What is the ideal course of action when you are miles from civilization and a tornado is heading your way?
1st thought- find a rock shelter if possible
2nd thought- tie yourself to a large/old/strong tree and hope for the best
3rd thought- find a low point, valley, creek bed and stay low!!!
what are your thoughts?
