It’s the first day of summer…things are heating up and the forecast looks outstanding.
That means many of us will be hitting the trails. I know I’ll need to pull out my hiking backpack and update it with the North Shore Rescue’s 10 Essentials to Bring on a Hike.
- Signalling Device (whistle or something that can make noise)
- Fire Starter (something to make fire, not the classic Prodigy jam)
- Extra Clothes
- Pocket Knife
- Shelter (large orange bag and thermal tarp)
- Water & Food
- First Aid Kit
- Navigation (compass)
- Cell Phone
Now I just need to talk my daughter into a 6 hour hike this weekend.
