Backpacking survival kit plan

If you get lost you need to survive in the wilderness. If you plan on taking a backpacking, hiking trip or camping in the deep woods. Here are a few ideas on having a wilderness survival kit and plan. First have a plan with maps and locations of emergency stations, water sources, and research what kind of wild life inhabitants are in the area.
Make duplicate copies of you hiking or camping plans and leave it with relatives or friend.
You need to let them know where you are going to be backpacking.
If you get lost the rescue personal will have an idea of where to start their search patterns. Your survival kits needs to have water proof matches or some kind of fire stick. You need to stay dry and warm. You need a compass and maps of the area. You can put in a small knife or razor blades and a small flash light and extra batteries. There are survival knives in sporting good stores that have water tablets, fishing line and hooks, small bandages and antibiotic cream all in the handle.
