The whole point of this page, is to provide quick and easy access to something you should check every time before you head out. A pack list.
Everyone has different “necessities”, but below I have listed mine, customized for various situations.
Backpacking 3 Season Pack List

I think you should include signaling devises. You have the ability to start a fire–not effective in daylight unless really smoky. I’d suggest a whistle and mirror (if you have a very reflective pot, that would do.) A person may not get lost, but may become injured off trail and need some way to get rescuers attention. You are offering a lot of good advice to beginning backpackers. The skill to go out and enjoy nature is and invaluable gift. Thank you for encouraging new hikers.
That’s a great idea! I’ll see what I can work up. I might even dedicate a new post to this. Thanks for reading. I certainly appreciate it.
