Pictures of the people in your family and group! If phones dont work it would be good to have pictures of friends and family so you could show them to people and ask if they had seen them so you could try and track them down

That's really a good idea. It could still be done with a good bushcraft knife but the thin shavings from a sharpener would work well.

I carry a bb pistol and sling shot. Mostly for fun but it helps if you need to take small animals down without scaring off your entire food supply with a gun or the time for trapping.

the Pocket Rocket folding sling shot has been a real life saver taking down Birds, Squirrels and Rabbits. You can probably take down larger prey with it but I haven't had to try it.

I hope you are eating what you kill.

Well, this is my first post but I was looking around in my cube here and am going to put small box of these 1 1/4 inch High Mark foldback binder clips in my bag. I also grabbed a box of 3/4 inch. I figure they could be great for clothes lines, tents, etc.

I usually bring along a cup or two of pasta kept in a zip lock bag. They are easy to cook and very filling. I then take a baby food jar (baby food being another good source of food for backpacking) and fill it with sauce for my pasta. Walla, a great meal on the trail.

Each bob also has two tridents [small and large] for frog [or anything else ] gigging.
So far, you're the only one i've seen who packs frog gigs. I carry them also.

I came home from work one day to find the wife very upset. She went through my gear and found a pack of condemns in my first aid kit. I busted up laughing, she broke down crying. The lesson learned, pack a zip lock bag.
