More time outdoors, especially off the beaten track, means more opportunities to find yourself in trouble.
To prepare for that, you need a day survival kit; this video covers that.
A basic or day survival kit gives you the ability to get through a fairly simple survival incident – say you sprain an ankle on a hike or loose track of time and find yourself too far to make it back to your vehicle before dark.
Those types of incidents can happen to all of us, but do not require that you carry a full-blown survival kit with you.
