There's no doubt it could be a life saver, but what else should you have to raise your safety level?

A definite must have is fully supplied First Aid Kit. This is one I found on Amazon that will attach to your pack, or even your belt. It has many tools that will definitely give you an added sense of comfort.

First Aid Kit 1

Satellite Messengers - There are many different types to choose from, but they basically work the same.

Some are a little more advanced than others.

You have the full text versions, that will allow you to text back-n-forth with rescuers or family.

There are on button messengers that allow you to record messages and at the push of a button the message will be sent.

You can find these types of survival tools at stores like Rocky Mountain Discount Sports or REI.

A Solar Phone Charger is another way to add a level of safety to your trip. You're able to find these at fairly low cost, but obviously, the more you spend it may be a little better quality. This one I found on Amazon and it can be purchased for a little over $20, not a bad price to spend on keeping your phone charged up, may be a life saver.

The Backcountry SOS App is a simple to use app that will help you reach authorities in the event you're in danger and need help. As long as you have enough phone service to send out a text, the app can you the GPS in your phone to help locate you and send rescuers to you.

It's always good to have a paper map of the area you're hiking or camping, just in case something happens to your electronics and need to rely on old school map reading.

A Historic Hike To Wyoming's Outlaw Cave

The drive into the canyon is quite the beautiful drive. It's not too far from Kaycee, but you'll need a vehicle with good clearance and suspension. When you arrive to the Outlaw Cave Campground, you're mind is blown from the size of the canyon. The drive and hike are worth every minute spent on the road to get there.
