After reading about the young man that crashed in the mountains of Montana I got to thinking it might be a good time to update my gear as well and thought it would be a good idea to start a thread on what survival gear to have on board here's the stuff I have with me at all times in a back pack strapped in rear baggage.
small tent (but it could be anything to make shelter)
change of dry cloths & boots
first add kit (which in itself needs to be upgraded)
fire starting material (matches & flint)
150lb. twine or small rope
a little dried food the kind you get for back packing
I'll need to pull it out and go through it I know I have forgotten something, I fly in Canada and Alaska a fair amount of the time so I add to this as needed. (big gun or small gun)
