Toilet Paper.

100% of the time: Knife, waterproof matches,iodine tablets, map and a compass are on my body at all times that I am away from camp.

In addition my daypack has a head lamp, jacket, TP, bug spray, sunscreen, chapstick, water bottle, and first aid kit and is always in the canoe with me.

Knife, lighter, baby wipes, bandana, Carmex, fishing license, permit.

Knife, compass, bandana, water, lighter, (TP if the wife is along).

I don't carry my ID unless I have my day pack or I am fishing. I don't believe in having credentials along 100% of the time - it decays my sense of freedom and individualism, which are only illusions, I know, but it makes me happy to think I'm something more than a number.

canoe,map,tp,undies,(they go together) flashlight, lighter, know, I always over-pack!!!

BIC mini, multitool, compass, map, water filter bottle. You'd also have to pry my fishing rod from my cold dead hands.

Actually, I'm rarely away from camp without at least a small pack with essentials but these are the items that I can say are pretty much always with me and always get packed mo matter what.

I compass, knife, and waterproof matches are always with me. They are no brainers and can fit on a belt or pocket.

I'd need to specify at camp or not. When not in camp I will have either my PFD on that includes a small first aid/ditch kit, PLB, map and compass, and knife. If away from camp hiking, a daypack is always with, that includes it's own set of similar gear, the PLB will go along as well. In camp the gear is there but not always on me.

100% of the time? i guess id have to type my packing list in here. i take the same stuff every trip.

Assuming you mean what do I always have on my person while in, knife and camera and the clothes I'm wearing, but the cloths change so not the same clothes 100% of the time.

Well, I confess, when swimming I don't have my knife or clothes except maybe water shoes. Since getting a waterproof camera, I usually still have that.

When not in camp, I always have around my neck or in my pocket a compass, whistle, lighter, knife, and deep woods off.
04/21/2012 10:52AM
I assume you mean wherever I am when I am in the dub, not just at camp...

Knife, first aid/ditch kit, compass, map, matches and some snacks like candy bars or such.

core safety gear, otherwise it varies. I always have the anticipation that something great is happening and it will likely get better.
