I agree with most of the answers. However, I would suggest that any camper, boater, or hiker should turn on their GPS before you leave the trail head or landing. One check to see that it is working and the batteries are good. And two to set the starting point of you trip. That way you should always be able to fine your way back. Of course a map and compass should always be in your pack--even on simple day hikes.

Learned a few things in this article, was well written, liked the test format...but I got a real laugh out of the answer to question 20...I'm willing to bet that heating your water to 1000 degrees Celsius (I've never seen a backpacking kiln before) would kill pretty much everything. Might take a few days before it would be cool enough to make a cup of tea, though. Oh, and you'd better use a high pressure pottery vessel...at 1000 degrees, glass is pretty malleable.

Sorry, it's just a typo. Should be 100, of course.
