Bringing this tread back because it is so important

 

My essentials would be...

 

compass (gps with spare batteries)

knife

matches (waterproof in special container)

20' rope

fishing line and hooks

first aid kit

flashlight and spare batteries

cotton balls

candles

large garbage bag

 

All of these fit snuggly in a small locknlock which in turn fit in your day bag which might contain spare clothing, water, map, food bars...survival book, etc

All good lists, but did I miss anyone including a little spare cash?  A few $20 bills can make many "situations" more bearable. Also for those of us a little older spare glasses, including sunglasses, as I live in the Sun Belt.  True these are not numbers one and two on my list but I would miss them more than a candle or a flashlight.

i think for those of us with bad eyes having a spare set of glasses would be worth its weight in gold

Also for those of us a little older spare glasses,

 

I use the type glasses that darken in the sun (transitions) and always save my prior set.  While they aren't exactly perfect for my eyes, they would be much better than nothing, especially for people who can't afford the extra $400 that my glasses cost.  I would recommend that people who are far sighted (can't see close up), maybe carry a spare cheaper (single vision close prescription with the cheapest plastic frame you can get) set.  I happen to be near sighted, so I can do close up stuff without the glasses but can't see worth a crap far away.  The wife always gets a set of computer glasses that have the perfect correction for being at the computer all day...those might make a good backup set if you get them with the transitions/photochromic option.

 

P.S.  Older....grin.....I've had glasses since I was 12.
