As you go for long hikes in the summer weather, you probably will think about the obvious safety rules. Consider hiking earlier or later in the day when it isn’t as hot. Make sure you bring water. Protect your skin from sunburn. And wear the right clothes.
But as you make your plans, here are four things you might not know, thanks to an excellent blog post on the REI website:
- All clothes block the sun’s effects to some extent, but more and more manufacturers are offering clothing that’s rated to protect you. Common ratings are UPF 15, UPF 30 and UPF 50+, much like the way sunscreens use SPF ratings. But there is one major difference between the two ratings. SPF only rates effectiveness against UVB rays, which is considered to be the more damaging type of light. UPF, however, measures how a piece of clothing works in blocking both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) light.
- Most people talk about the need to avoid dehydration on long hikes, but many hikers don’t realize there is also risk in overhydration. To avoid that risk, drink water every 15-20 minutes, but be careful not to drink more than you sweat. Also, work in a sports drink or other ways to add electrolytes and/or eating salty snacks to make sure your salt levels stay on track.
- How far you go on your first hike in the summer matters. It may take at least several weeks to acclimate to the hot weather, so be sure to take it easy on your first few summer hikes.
- Heat exhaustion happens, so make sure you keep an eye on your hiking partners to check for telltale signs, like nausea, rapid pulse, heavy sweating, and headaches. If you think someone is showing those signs, have them rest in the shade, rehydrate, and if conditions persist, abandon the hike and seek medical help.
It’s important for everyone to be safe this summer in the outdoors, and PotlatchDeltic works to make its properties both appealing and safe for everyone who uses them. Happy hiking, everyone!

If you water ski or wakeboard, you know by now that once you’re underway, it’s very hard to communicate with the boat driver verbally over the noise of the motor.
What you may not know is there’s an entire set of common hand signals that experienced water skiers and wakeboarders use to communicate with the boat driver. These signals can make the experience more pleasant, and in some cases, may prevent a potentially risky situation.
As several examples of how the signals work, when you’re in the water, patting your head with your right hand means you want to go back to the dock, and holding your hands together over your head tells the boat driver that you’re okay.
In addition to learning the signals, it’s also important to remember several key safety tips. Make sure the tow rope is clear of the propeller or any other hazards before taking off. Check that the propeller is off before you get back into the boat. And head back to the dock for the day before daylight starts to fade.
PotlatchDeltic recreational properties are often within easy reach of great spots for boating. Contact one of the real estate experts in the PotlatchDeltic broker network to learn how you can buy a home base for your activities in the woods and on the water!

As you go boating this summer, it’s important to remember some safety basics, which aren’t a hassle and won’t get in the way of your fun.
Here are four tips to remember, courtesy of the National Safety Council:
- If you’re wondering whether wearing a life jacket is really necessary, know that 84% of U.S. boating deaths in 2017 involved boaters who weren’t wearing a life jacket. Bring a properly-fitted life jacket for everyone in the boat – big or small – and make wearing one a requirement for coming along.
- Know the “rules of the road” for boating, meaning how to follow markers and how to interact with other boats when they’re nearby. And know the laws in the state where you’re boating.
- Take the time to do a safety check of the boat before you head out, and be sure you bring a tool kit and a first aid kit.
- Just like when you’re driving a car, drinking alcohol and driving a boat is a really bad idea. If needed, have a designated driver, just as you would if you’re out on the town with friends.
