survival bag

I've been trying to figure out what needs to go in our survival kits that I mentioned a while ago.
I think SandyBottom has done the thinking for us. She is busy organizing the Water Tribe NC Challenge which will be going on as Bruce and I head north on Chesapeake Bay. In a post on their discussion forum she said.....

My hypothermia kit is a small drybag and contains a couple of waterproof matches, a couple small pieces of a starter fire log, space blanket, emergency heat packs, wool cap, energy bar. All fit in a small pack attached to the back of my PFD.

Add to that a couple of signalling devices and we might be in pretty good shape. Thanks Dawn for the advice. Have a great race!
