The Ten Essentials

I'm planning a weekend backing trip on the Butterfield Hiking Trail at Devil's Den State Park and National Forest for the weekend of March 30.  This is just a quick post of a list of the "Ten Essentials" that should accompany every outdoorsman.

1. Navigation (map and compass)
2. Sun protection (sunglasses and sunscreen)
3. Insulation (extra clothing)
4. Illumination (headlamp/flashlight)
5. First-aid supplies
6. Fire (waterproof matches/lighter/candles)
7. Repair kit and tools
8. Nutrition (extra food)
9. Hydration (extra water)
10. Emergency shelter

I'll post more about the trip later.
