I also carry a combination folding shovel/pick axe, as well as a snow shovel that packs away until needed, and a snow saw for building snow shelters.If your someone new to assembling your first emergency go-kit, it can seem like a arduous task.This includes water for washing, drinking and cooking.The recommendation is for 2 to 3 litres per person per day for drinking plus an additional 2 litres per person per day for cleaning and hygiene (I use a 10 liter Scepter military water can for my needs).A response like this engenders a sense of weariness and defeat.It has been endlessly repeated in history, yet human organisation, resources, science and technology are perfectly capable of improving it.
Duct tape and rope/paracord Wire for binding and repairing things Plastic tarps for shelter and water collection I could make due for several weeks or longer with my go-kit, and indefinitely with a extra 20 minutes of preparation before heading out.So bottom line is, when you plan on travelling down roads less travelled, don't leave home un-prepared, but be prepared should the un-expected arise. Student employees MUST register as employees and as students.Of course I had another reason to visit the Highwood Pass, as I had it on good authority that there had been Ptarmigan spotted in the area surrounding the pass recently, a popular staging area with hikers in the summer, and back-country skiers and snowshoers at this time of the year.
One of the most popular trails in Kananaskis Country is the Ptarmigan Cirque trail located higher up above the Highwood Pass.Once again in Kashmir a familiar story has played itself out.
