  • Keep a picture of your children with you in case they get lost.
  • Always have water, snacks, matches and a flashlight even when day hiking
  • Always hike with a friend, never hike alone.
  • Head lamps or snake lights hung around your neck can provide a hands-free light source.

  • A bandana can be very useful at camp.
  • Use glow sticks for a bit of soft light at night.
  • To increase the visibility and to avoid tripping on, mark the guide lines of your tent or tarp with foil or colored fabric.
  • Use a hand truck or luggage carrier to cart your supplies to your campsite. This is especially useful if your site is a good distance from your vehicle. Also good for toting those water containers.
  • Space blankets work great for unexpected cool weather. They are inexpensive and when folded up they fit in your back pocket.
  • Bring dental floss - good toothpick, use as tread for repairs or emergency shoe laces.

  • To hang a lantern, get those lightweight metal rods that are used for hanging plants and stick them in the ground anywhere near your campsite.
