My name is Olya Andronova. I am Information Systems Specialist, climber, hiker, skier, former EMT-B living in California. I have a huge passion for wilderness and wilderness safety. I am keeping track of places I have been to and documenting different things I have learned on the trail about personal safety. Of course, no amount of information, books, or websites can guarantee your own personal safety in the wilderness. It is each person’s responsibility to research, be knowledgeable, and take all the necessary safety precautions to be safe.
