What's in your first aid kit?

I usually carry a first aid kit with me on the trail. I was trying to figure out if I carry too much or too little. Those of you that carry a first aid kit:
What is included in your kit?
What do you regularly use from it?

I saw my first desert bighorn when I was 13 and hiking the Grand Canyon with my dad. We came around a bend and there was a huge ram perched on a rock. Majestic!

I had 4 knee surgeries by the time I was 21, since then I've continued to hike and within the last couple of years my knees would get really sore during and after a hike. My brother (who has never had knee problems) bought a pair two summers ago when he hiked Rainier and suggested I give them a try....

Fossil Spings distance question?

I just went to Fossil Springs for the first time this weekend. We backpacked in from the hilltop and shuttled a car so we could come out on the Flume Road. It seems that there is some disagreement on how long each of these trails are. On the Fossil Springs trail description it says its 4 miles one w...

Some people just like to mow the lawn, I guess. They're pretty level-headed in Arkansas, though. (You can tell because the tobacco juice runs out both sides of their mouths.) I understand the toothbrush was invented in Arkansas. If it had been invented anywhere else, it would be called a TEETHbrush...

Personally - I'm taking the Bus to work, Save money, frustration, and the environment all at the same time. Yea, well, that's easy when you only live 5 miles away from your work. You could probably get away with riding your bicycle to work. Come on - give me some credit. It's 9 miles. (and yes I've...

I only had that experience once. I agree with Matt - make sure you rinse your dishes. In addition - you need to be real careful that you don't get dehyderated. Take the Immodium.

Try the Los Burros Trail in the Pinetop area, it a great trail - There are two loops a long loop and a short loop. The short loop is only 7-8 miles and the long loop is about 14. I did it in July and it was beautiful. There isn't a lot of elevation gain so it would be good for kids.
