midnightsun03: I like your attitude. And as you allude to, attitude is important. What you know, and what you do is often much more important than what you carry in your first aid kit. My experience is that lots of 4 x 4 's for cleaning and covering wounds is what I have used mostly in the woods. I also carry, now, a very clean bandana in my kit (in a zip-lock) in place of a triangle bandage. I encourage my friends to carry a reasonable amount of supplies and at least once we used most of what we had to bandage someone up after a fall. Jim (retired volunteer EMT)
