I'm ready for snow so I have been thinking about what I need to put in my backpack. I never really planned this well in the past but I have found if I have packs or totes for each of my activities, it takes less time to get ready to go out/I forget less.
Here's what I have so far, any suggestions would be great:
Extra Gloves, Hat
Rope & parachute cord
First Aid kit
Compass & Map
Something that I kept in my machine last year that one of my friends made of fun of me for was chest waders. He made fun of me until he went out without me and sunk his machine through the ice. He was up to his (you know what) in ice cold water for an hour trying to muscle it out. Now who's the Dumass?
