Safe Travel Essentials

Friday, February 20, 2009

Found this list among some of my new outdoor gear. Authored by REI:

1. Navigation
2. Hydration
3. Nutrition
4. Sun Protection
5. Insulation
6. Warmth
7. Illumination
8. First Aid
9. Shelter
10. Whistle

It seems to align fairly well with our manifesto. Especially since navigation falls under instinct (especially when you have a natural sense of direction). I think the whistle part sounds rather absurd, but it worked for Kate Winslet in Titanic. That's all the validation this survivalist needs.
