I thought people would poke fun at the idea of a compass but you guys are really into it!

And as far as raingear goes the dayhike pack gets a cheap poncho. The ponco will keep the hiker and the daypack dry and can be rigged up as a simple and tiny shelter.

Bright colors for bandanas, packs, hats and ponchos are preferred because they reflect heat, make you easy to find and I personally have never seen a deer or bear (or other potential target) wearing a bright yellow hat.

Oh wait. Yogi wore a bright yellow hat. Must be why no one ever shot him for stealing all those picnic baskets.

Radio, you have to understand that Greg and I are former military, so back azimuths and map orientation are second nature. With my marine (water) background, I also do chart work (sea maps) and celestial nav. I do like your original post, though. By your legs, I can tell you are well aclomated to hiking.

I fail to note any kind of humor.
