Does anyone know of a good site or have a list of items that should be mandatory for a cache backpack?  As we get more adventurous with the girls I would like to have a bag of first aid items and other things we might need along the way. 

 

Hopefully the collective experience of the group will tell me about things I will need before I need them!

CHL not necessary. Doesn't hurt to be prepared. Just be cautions common sense and you'll be fine. I've been caching for 10yrs haven't needed one yet but have wished to have one on several occasions.

I use my phone or big camera to take pictures/video of under railings and hidey holes that I can't see or blindly reach under.
Then review the pictures. The flash on the camera really lights up those dark areas.

This is a really great tip with using phones to take pictures to see around areas you can't see! 

I'll start doing this for sure...as long as my phone doesn't end up falling into a river/ditch  :blackeye:

 

Btw: this reminds me to look into water-proof iPhone cases! After being in a downpour for an hr my phone didn't work for 4 hrs...then suddenly worked, (evaporation?), again. I can't always be so lucky  ^_^

Placing no longer functioning wet electronics in a bag full of rice for a couple of days will work to revive it most of the time.
Your milage may vary if your device took a drink in salt water.

You should be able to alter it and add your name and details if you have a google email address and are signed in.

I've added myself to the list a few days ago, but I'm not seeing how I can save it as a google doc on my own stuff to access from my android phone.  Any ideas?
