8. Look behind you for landmarks for the way back. Learn to use a Lensatic compass and check your USGS 7.5 min map.
9. 2 small flashlights that use the same batteries(AA or AAA). When one gets dim use the other to put in new batteries. It gets really dark out in the mountains when there is no moon. Almost like being in way down in a cave. carry extra batteries, enough for 2 reloads.
10. Toilet paper for those emergencies and also works good for starting a fire. Put it in a Ziplock baggie.
11. Matches or cigarette lighter for making a fire. (also in the baggie)
12. 3 shots from a gun, delay and 3 shots is a call for help. Carry spare rounds.
13. Some kind of rain gear, 30 gallon trash bag works good for the top 1/2 and takes little room.
14. Some kind a food you can carry and munch on. Bread doesn't pack very good cross country, so for get the Peanut butter. Doritos do pretty good if you have the water to wash them down. Granola Bars have the same problem. BUT snack packs of sliced peaches work out good. Most of my hunting was not where there was much water to drink. IF you are in an area that can have beavers, carry a "Good" filter for the water. Probably more but I'll have to check what I use to stuff into the daypack. Just figure that you may be gone all day and maybe most or all of the night when you leave. Those nifty space age blankets weren't too bad, but they tore easy.

This is probably a longcut on the trail to Pegleg's black nuggets.
We've read the story of "Poor Tom Cover" (although I would very much like to obtain a copy of The Riverside Press & Horticulturalist November 15, 1884 article about him and his untimely demise).
Earlier in life, was it Tom Cover who caused John Bozeman - of the Bozeman Trail and Bozeman City, Montana Territory - to sun his moccasins?

Speaking of missing newspaper articles - I'd also like to read the Los Angeles Mining Review piece published February 11, 1899.
Good luck to all,
