ahhh! Why not hang across the trail? Anyone (and everyone) on the
trail will find you.
You also need to remember that it is much harder to keep warm in a
hammock. There is air circulation all around you. This is very nice on
those hot, hot summer nights, but can be a problem once the temps get
anything near cool.
- Yep, a copious amount of clean water used to flush a wound (at
pressure if possible) is really all you need. some studies suggest
it's even potentially more destructive to the injured tissue to use
peroxide or other anit-bacterial cleaning agents.
Huh, good old mother nature provided H2O, how about that.
Another thing I find really interesting is that according to the
rescue peeps I've talked to most rescues occur within a 72 hour
period. That has changed the way I look at my "survival" kit.

clorox as a water treatment is that I remember reading in one of the
outdoor magazines or survival shows that overdosing iodine can be
potentially deadly where as the clorox has a bit more of a higher
fudge factor. another thing I thought of is that since I carry the
alcohol couldn't I dilute a bit of the gel in a bit of water and come
up with an applicalble antiseptic if needed? For the most part I guess
I always figured that I would just use my treated water as a flush if
I needed one.
