    This covers all the essentials and a great reminder since I do solo hikes often on challenging trails. I like the whistle idea too. I always have my salt pills. GMO Free Himalayan Salt for electrolytes and Ive had to share these often. I usually take them just before getting on the trail or during when I notice my fingers feeling tight and puffy.

    I also lead hikes with up to 40 people and have been looking into building different First Aid Kits for different size groups. I have had to wrap ankles and knees during hikes and having proper tools is essential!
