I always try to be prepared. I'd rather be safe than sorry. One thing that hasn't been mentioned is "Ant/Bug spray. You never want to be invaded by ants. Trust Me I know !!!

For instance, no camping within 1/2 mile of the pristine high mountain lakes. DON'T FEED THE PIKAS on the high mountain passes (Hwy 20)
And don't forget to get a Discovery Pass for your Vehicle or you could get a ticket, at least in Western WA, not sure about east of the Cascades.

Head torch could singe hair - but the other post on putting a filter on your mug and pouring boiling water in - would definitely burn your mouth. My mug is ugly enough with shaving nicks and sunburn. Gonna steer clear making coffee in my mouth. Head torch optional. Not that much hair left anyway.

Matches or a lighter.

There was woman in AZ who went hiking, got lost and died of hypothermia. If she or her hiking buddy was a smoker or had something to light a fire, she would still be alive.

She could see into the future?

Every once in a while... when cleaning the stick lizards out of my rail, I come across a pack of new or partially used pack of matches wrapped in cellophane/plastic wrap. So far, only the black colored one won't light.

Doesn't hurt to be prepared.







A spare set of keys has already been mentioned.... Tough; get over it.

Several trips ago, I left my RV keys at home in my work shorts. I was about to bolt cut the locks off and my GF says: "Why don't you use the spare keys you hid in the **** ******.
