I convinced the young turk to share the lighter weight version of his emergency/repair kit (he has a bigger one for longer more remote trips). Problem is, after packing in the titanium mini cooking pot he likes, we can still fit something in there. Anyone have an idea of what more we could squeeze in?
|From left to right.
Top row: 12 ounce titanium cup/pot; athletic tape with latex gloves & inner tube band that doubles as fire starter; plastic pot lid, three wound dressings .
Middle row: Zip ties; safety pin; ampule of eyedrops; mini light; container with matches & Vaseline soaked dryer lint; water purification tabs; lighter; contacts; fire starting inner tube strips; ziplock for med items.
Bottom row: Drug info; antibiotic ointment; ibu; moleskin; antihistamine; antiseptic towelettes.
|Kit packed, see the space at lower left? What should we fit in there? (5 cm high x approx. 3 cm x 4 cm)
Notes: The ti cookpot is useful for melting snow and/or boiling water during a bivy below timberline. Knife/screwdriver, compass, duct tape and Spot Messenger are carried separately.
