This is a great post! Evidently you've ALMOST been stranded without First Aid at least once in your life time. That is usually what spurs us that know we need first aid to do this. I was raised in Boy Scouts... started in the Cubs when I was eight and went through to Eagle. I stayed in scouting until I was married at age 21, then when we had our first child, a son, I was back in scouting as soon as he was old enough. We learned everything over together, and now I wouldn't be caught without my first aid. It stays with me in my truck wherever I go. The one thing I need to invest in is the Satellite Personal Tracker. But I have not (yet) really been off the beaten path to need one... the GPS in my phone works fine.

Kudos for the great story and pictures to remind everyone how important this is!
