Replying to my own topic, here's some philosophy (philosophy - get it?)

When hiking/backpacking, everyone should carry their own first aid kit.

Reason being, if I use my stuff on YOU, then I don't have it for ME.

Don't rely on that one guy or gal, who is a nurse or medic or volunteer first responder, who always carries a 5lb hospital grade medical box and is always looking for the opportunity to tape you up.

thank you
