DIPPER'S PACKING LIST SUGGESTIONS


We all bring various items for outdoor activity. Some people might remember their water bottle, others will bring a small medi-vac setup. During a back-country situation, you need a clear head, some experience...and the ability to use/manipulate your surroundings.

"The best tool to bring on any hike, camp, canoe trip...is your head".....Gordon Warnica

"It also helps to have some gear".....Dipper
