Now lingerie is something I would not expect, but I can see it's use. Especially if you travel abroad as well.

Lingerie IS a necessity.

What kind of pack do you use, and how do you get yours in the kayak? I'm a backpacker and kayaker myself, always enjoy learning to tricks.

Camelbak Hellion 3 Litre.
My 'special pack' is in a smaller nylon bag that contains the flare, water purification tabs, para chord, mirrors et. al. The kayak has one dry compartment behind me where I place the hellion. If I see the weather is a bit nasty when I have to cross.....I put the special pack within reach in the forward section. The hellion, even when really packed, will fit through the hatch will just a bit of effort, with room to spare to put other things....
The pack
http://www.trailspace.com/gear/camelbak/hellion/
It's gone through a bit of rough handling this past year and all the stiching is still firm! No rips and tears. Very satisfied with the quality, but I wished it had more external pockets.

The flares...

The kayak...

The model I took only had the rear dry compartment. Damn thing is extremely stable and 48 pounds empty.

Among various curiosities, one thing I've added to my survival/BOB is a medium sized [aquarium] fish net: the pair of heavy gage sleeved wires that form the handle could be untwisted and used for other things, and the net, of course, could be useful for catching bait, frogs, crayfish, etc...

Default Don't know why?

I don't know why but I like the passport idea, I have way to much stuff to carry in a bob, I have a 4x6 trailer that go's across country real well, Mexico maybe? If they would let me out, or is it in?

P.S. I do have a 4x4 to tow it.

Besides combat shears, I carry a small pair of scissors for cutting hair. They are super lightweight. Now I thought fingernail clippers were a must already. Just in case it took a while for things to get back to normal or for me to get where I'm going.

I'm sorry, the spelling confused me... "Especially if you travel as a broad."

In some of the back woods of the west and north cell phones will not work. Some of the fire stations and lodges have pay phones. The are in servise during the winter months when the lodges are closed. I have read of people being stranded and come upon a closed lodge and not being able to use a pay phone to call for assistance.

That's a good point, birdman; I hope one could assume that an Operator would lend a hand in an emergency.

Yes, it was a federal grant which funded this back in the mid 80's

As long as thier is service to a payphone 911 will work,

Thin is with cell phone popularity they are becoming more scarce
