It’s summer and it’s time to plan for that outdoor adventure. Whether you’re traveling as a group with family or friends, or doing it on your own, here are some essentials to bring to make sure your adventure stays safe and fun. Get a printed map, yes, because Google maps is only as good as you have batteries in your phone. On the same note, get a real compass, one that doesn’t require power. Also choose a headlamp
that’s small but stays on longer. Big, bulky headlamps
usually run out of power fast. Bring a first aid kit, too, consisting of meds for headaches, stomach aches… and also dressing gauze, cottons, dressing solution, and other basic emergency necessities. Bring a strong rope—you don’t know where to use it but you’ll find it a lifesaver when emergency strikes. Lastly, don't forget the Swiss Army
knife. Enjoy the outdoors this summer!
Swiss Army is available at Schwarzschild's at Carry Town.
