Geography: No, this is not a test! In times past, many of our families tended to live in same community. Clustering is probably right word. Although a bit more challenging, create an album of their residences. Where did they live? In city? On a farm? While it may not be possible to show actual house, it is possible to get a picture of location. Include a copy of a map from an atlas of time showing exactly where they lived, along with picture and/or biography of family. Again, include stories or recollections if available. As in "Occupation" album, describe a typical day for a family in that time period. What were major social influences of time? I remember grandma talking about flu epidemic in early 1900s causing many to be fearful to leave their house.
Potpourri: - Create an album of your favorite women or men. Tell a bit about them and why they're a favorite. - How about an album of family traditions, stories and folklore? Don't worry if they're true or not, preserve them and people associated with them. - If you have family reunions, create an album of them to hand down to later generations.
Don't be overwhelmed... think themes!

4. In addition to knowing weather conditions, you will need to be prepared with a first aid kit that's appropriate for hiking you will be doing. In most cases a simple kit will do. You can pick up a simple first aid kit at a local department or sporting goods store. Or you can build you own, which should include these basics: - Different sizes and shapes of bandages and gauzes. - Various types of tape for wounds or fixing tools. - Suntan lotion. - A light emergency blanket (preferably with some kind of water resistance). - Aspirin, allergy, laxative, and anti-diuretic medications. - Small multi-use tool with a knife, scissors, and a needle and thread. - A cell phone can come in very handy in emergencies.
It's a good idea to pack all of this in a waterproof bag or container.
Using these tips, your next hiking adventure should be quite comfortable, safe, and enjoyable!
