 bring on a hiking trip
What are the most important things that you can bring on a hiking trip? My friends and I are planning a hiking trip to Everglades City, FL. This will be our first time doing this type of outdoors activity. We are only planning on going for a few hours, but I know sometimes things don't go as planned, so in case of an emergency what are the types of things that could save us to get out of trouble.

Even a couple of hours can turn disastrous. Look at poor Gilligan. :wink:

But if you're hiking especially in FL, then I'd bring extra water, lots of deet, and the 10 essentials.

Whenever I hike in Florida I usually like to bring flip flops, bathing suit, sunscreen, camera and rum.

Flip flops are good, but water moccasins are even better ;)
