Sundown, you better take care…

Nobody wants to be caught in the dark.  Nighttime means a drop in temps and trouble finding your routes, not to mention seeing risks or upcoming dangers.  Before it’s too late make sure you keep your eyes to the horizon.

An hour and fifteen left...

Estimate how much daylight you have left by: 

  • Holding your hand at arm’s length and count how many fingers between the bottom of the sun and the horizon
  • Each finger will represent 15 minutes (unless you have sausage fingers, then it’s 25)
  • The above image represents one hour, 15 minutes until darkness sets in
  • In the Midwest, give yourself a little cushion…
    • …The dense woods of the Midwest make it seem a bit darker, earlier
  • If it goes dark too fast, make sure you pack a headlamp!
