On the advice of a sensible attorney friend, I've added a liability disclaimer to each Field Trip announcement. This is to cover my a*s.
The disclaimer does not imply any unusual danger.
Fact is, a sensible individual is far more likely to come to harm in their own neighborhood than out in "the wild." I do my best to assure that my own Field Trips maximize comfort and accessibility, and are "family friendly."
I recommend traveling to any "off road" destination with no less than 2 vehicles. Thankfully, I've yet to experience any of the horror stories I've read of danger and deprivation, due to my penchant for over-planning.
The mountains and desert can be dangerous to the unprepared, but on the average, crossing the street in town is far more deadly.
