Winter Basics

The outdoor community recommends carrying the ten essentials of survival whenever going into the woods. This is earthquake country, so I carry the minimum every time I go beyond walking distance of the house. Because there are bodies of water between home and my usual destinations, I carry the ten most of the time. The list is shorter during warm weather, but not by much.
