oh and I forgot splinters...

so to Day hike and Overnight add..

  • tweezers for splinters and ticks.  (A needle can be used for splinters.  Some find a "tick key" is helpful.)


I might add some decongestant tables like psuedophedrine to the longer trip drug list since they can be helpful controlling certain symptoms.  If you suffer from "hay fever" or similar allergies you should know what works for you and take that along on hikes and longer trips.
