What to Bring - General

A small pack with water and a snack is a good idea. I carry between 2 and 3 liters of water and several different "bars". I don't like to eat much at all when I hike but I have know experienced hikers who seem to be able to carry and consume actual meals. I also bring a towel, compass, maps, first-aid supplies, bug repellant, a GPS (most times), waterproof matches and a knife (no guns!). As the days grow shorter, I also carry an LED headlamp just in case I need a little light to walk by. Just remember that the weight of all items increases in direct proportion to the distance traveled.
