The ace bandage is not listed because we always carried them (more than one!) else where in the backpack. When a knee would get sore then we'd pull one out and wrap the knee, more to prevent injury than to treat it. Sorry for the omission.
Did not carry popsickle sticks or any other splint material. Did carry a Swiss Army Knife that would fashion a splint from local vegetation. Should have mentioned scissors or something else to cut with. Also had a spare box of waterproof matches in there.
And a favorite treat for me was a 35mm film can full of cotton balls soaked in Camphophenique (not sure of spelling) that would sooth tired toes at the end of a long days trek.
Now the kit for the RV could contain lots of stuff like something for sunburn, poison ivy, stomach remedies and all that.
Yep, going in with a friend or two and making your own kits is certainly the best way to go.
Feel free to add to the list.
