Your apps may not be able to update automatically.

It might rain. Or snow. Or be sunny.

You could stub your toe on a root or rock since many backcountry locations do not have adequate sidewalks installed.

The rain is wet, the snow is cold, and the sun will burn you. You really can't win here.

Or you might run into the Idster, B.G., Travis, Konrad, or me on the trail--what a fine mess that would be for you. And then there's David, Dean F., Adan, Craig, Mike, Kat, the Link, and maybe even Maia--it's pretty darned dangerous out there, with all those rascals on the loose.

Earthquakes, boulder avalanches, landslides, flash floods, freezing temperatures, triple-digit temperatures, rabid rodents and mammals, poisonous snakes, poisonous insects and spiders, predatory packs of coyotes, man-eating tarantulas, nasty large biting lizards, no marked trails, probably no water, and GPS failures."
