This post stayed with me long after I read it. It takes a lot of courage and humility to record when things do not go well in a forum for others to read.

Usually when I hike it's with the absolute minimum - a tiny bike hydration pack with my keys, water and an energy bar. Last week when I did the 7 mile loop hike of Botheration Pond I took a day pack, guidebook, compass, space blanket, matches and fire starter, an extra layer, flashlight and an ace bandage. Also extra food and water. You never expect anything to go wrong - but if it does and you're not prepared you're really screwed. So thank you rbi99 for reminding me.
