Sharing a good find with you

I found this first aid kit on Amazon a couple weeks ago and picked it up.  I like to have some sort of first aid kit with me when I go off hiking or my photography excursions.  The problem is, the good kits are usually huge and take up so much space.  The smaller ones that I have seen usually skimped on something and just full of Bandaids and 'fillers'.  This new kit I picked up, is small and very complete for it's size.  

IMO, a great find.  www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HGSLB6K/ref...00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I keep it attached to back of my back pack:

Good stuff, I'm gonna get one. I also carry a satellite beeper. My son got me one, as I'm more likely to fall off a cliff or suffer a bear attack. I activate it if injured and they'll come find my body.....:)

Why so serious?

This thread is reminding me to take a look at my kit, and see how much of it is expired. I have sutures in mine too. I got them from a plastic surgeon friend of mine that I showed he, and his son around the northern Az hunting spots. Yeah having kits is a thing that most people do not take when hiking, sometimes to their determent.
I figure if the lord is willing I will die in some canyon in northern Az, and someone will run across my bones finding my camera. I just hope I got some good shots for them to enjoy.

Wow, that looks pretty compact considering the amount of supplies packed inside. Not a bad price, either!

You're in Arizona?  You have some crazy impressive landscapes out there.  Are you near all the rock formations?

Well that works!  When you get out, are you going for long hikes?  Saturday, I hiked up Trabuco Canyon, in hopes to find the creek flowing.  Wishful thinking.  That was a dry hike.

I depends on my knees (one is real bad now), and lately they haven't allowed me any rough hiking. When I'm accompanied I get a lot braver. Usually take more chances in summer and fall.....

I'll have to get one of those kits. Since both my wife & I have iPhones, we can easily find each other with the "find my phone" feature. I haven't been out shooting much lately due to a case of Cervicalgia
