I just finished reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed, a book about a woman who hiked the PCT (Pacific Coast Trail) all by herself. It made me wish I could do something like that. But the problem is that my idea of camping is sitting on my front porch in my pajamas while surfing my favorite gadget sites and drinking a cup of tea. If you’re more outdoorsy than I am, you might want to look into buying a VSSL Supplies survival kit for your next outdoor adventure. The VSSL kit consists of an 8 x 2 inch diameter anodized aluminum tube that holds individual tins of supplies like an LED flashlight, oil filled compass, beeswax candle, razor blade, water purification tablets, fishing kit, saw, whistle, fire starter, signal mirror and more. This kit will be priced at $89 when it becomes available this fall from VSSL.
