All Weather

When riding your ATV in the wilderness, it is best to be prepared. Here are some important items you should bring with you on your next ATV adventure:

- First-Aid Kit

- Navigation Tools

- Tire Repair Kit

- Survival Kit

- All Weather Kit

First-Aid Kit

A lot of unexpected events can occur when you are out on the trail, and they include suffering an injury. Whether the injury is minor or life-threatening, it is a good idea to be prepared with an onboard first-aid kit. The kit will equip you to treat most minor injuries incurred by anyone in your riding group. Of course a basic first-aid kit is not equipped to handle most major injuries, but it can help substantially while you wait for rescue assistance.

An onboard first-aid kit can treat a whole host of minor injuries that may be incurred by you, or your group, while out in the wilderness.

Navigation Tools

Anyone who's done any amount of riding knows how exciting it is to explore a new trail, or area of wilderness. But frankly, putting the excitement aside, it is important for riders to know where they are, and where they are going. There are a lot of tools available today that will keep riders safe while they enjoy the excitement of a new trail. As an example; trail maps, GPS, a compass, or cell-phone are great items to have as navigation tools.

Having several navigation tools as part of your trailblazing gear is an effective way to prevent your riding party from getting lost, or needing rescue assistance.

Tire Repair Kit

When riding out in the wilderness your ATV is a great tool to get you where you want to go. But, if you suffer a flat tire, and have no repair kit, you will be stuck until the tire is fixed. This is where a tire repair kit would come in handy. Depending on the condition of your tires, and the trail, your chances of getting a flat may increase or decrease. Keeping your tires in good condition and having a tire repair kit can help to avoid ruining a perfectly good excursion.

Including a tire repair kit as part of your onboard gear is a great way to avoid getting stranded deep on a wilderness trail.

Survival Kit

If you are out on the wilderness trail even just for the day, it is a good idea to be prepared. One way to ensure your safety is to carry a survival kit on board just in case the unexpected happens. Depending on where you are when you need assistance, it could mean waiting anywhere from a few hours to a day for assistance to reach you. This is where a survival kit can make the wait a lot easier for everyone. A survival kit should include the following items; water, flashlight, snacks, and a multi-tool kit.

Survival kits are the number one precaution that experienced riders carry onboard whether their trip is for a few hours, or a few days.

All Weather Kit

This country has many wonderful areas for trailblazing, and each is unique in its character, and beauty. But, they also have their own unique weather patterns too. Being prepared for a sudden change in weather can mean the difference between an enjoyable, and a very uncomfortable ride. An all weather kit should include; cold weather, wet weather or hot weather riding gear.

Carrying an all weather kit as part of your gear will let you deal effectively with the unique weather patterns of the area you are riding.

Before you ride your ATVs again, ensure you are well prepared. Also check out GIO Bikes for great deals on dirtbikes and other all terrain vehicles.

What type of plants or trees can last all year long through all types of weather?

I need landscaping suggestions! I just bought a new house, but the only tree's i have are 2-3 big HUGE oak trees. I wanted something I can plant around the house and create a garden. I looked around my neighborhood for ideas, but it doesnt seem anyone has anything creative or eye catching besides the same stuff I have; Dirt. Any ideas? I don't know much, but I can follow directions. I live in a place where we get all 4 seasons; Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall.

If you are gardening under the shade of the big oak trees, select plants for shade or partial shade if that is the case, the plants at garden centres have very informative labels, look for info like annual/perennial, your geographical growing zone #, plant height/width, planting spacing, and light conditions (ie,shade).

Shrubs/bushes are your foundation plantings so that there is something to look at in the winter when all the flowers are gone.Perennials are way more expensive than annuals, but they come back every year and in a few years you can divide them and make more plants , so you get a lot of bang for your buck. Annuals are good fillers and they bloom all season until first frost, so they are great for instant long-lasting blooms and colour.

What's hot right now are ornamental grasses, hundreds of varieties, mostly requiring full sun, so choose wisely. They are great for winter interest because the grass can stay all through the winter, then in the spring you chop it back to a couple of inches, and watch it grow again !!

For a few days, watch the pattern of the sun on all the areas of your garden, to see what kind of light conditions you have..VERY IMPORTANT because plants that need full sun will not grow well in shade & vice versa.

Unless you install an underground sprinkler system, you'll probably be better off with 'drought tolerant ' plants, as they do not require constant TLC and watering, plants that are considered 'native' to your area are good for that.

Until your garden is planted, buy a couple of nice urns/planters to place on either side of your front door , they can be changed every season to reflect whatever season you're in, great way to add colour & pizzazz.

Good luck and happy planting!!
