Going Hiking? Carry the 10 Essentials

Anybody exploring the outdoors should carry the ten essentials at ALL times. Why? Because they just might save your life! The ten essentials are:

  1. Flashlight
  2. Whistle
  3. Waterproof matches or lighter
  4. Fire starter or candle
  5. Pocket knife
  6. Large orange plastic bag or tarp
  7. Water and food
  8. Extra clothes
  9. First aid kit
  10. Map and Compass

Now that winter has hit the lower mainland, be sure to pack extra warm clothing ideally with less that 20% cotton.

TIP:  Wool is best, as it keeps you warm even when wet.  And as always fill out and give a trip plan to a family member or friend!
