Outdoor Activities: Hiking and Biking SAFETY TIP

The first thing rangers will tell you:  Make a copy of your ID and insurance card.  Put it in your pack. I add:  cover it in plastic wrap or in a small plastic baggie.  Write your emergency contact name and phone number on it.

People often ask me what’s in my hiking pack.  I’ll get to answering this in another post.  But for now, and FIRST, make this copy  and put it in your pack as well as with your kayak stuff and in your bike pack.  For biking, I have a small fanny pack that I keep with my helmet and bike gloves.  In it I have my ID copy, some cash, a headband (to protect my ears on cold/windy days), lip protection, full finger gloves, an energy bar and a bandana.
