Um, What to Pack?
It's about what's appropriate. In Ireland on high ground away from roads, you need wet gear, change of clothing etc. Accidents don't happen very often, but they do happen. I have personally been at incidents from twisted ankles, broken legs, falls and a tragic fatality. On most of these occasions it usually involved hours waiting outside. Once I was near an accident on Mullaghanattin - broken leg. It took a day to get the patient down because of high winds and some of the party involved had to stay with the patient in the snow. So prepare. Bring extra clothing and first aid. Replace the first aid every 2 or 3 years where you don't use it because the plasters probably won't be sticky and the sterile pads probably aren't. Bring reserve food and drink. Bring a waterproofed map and compass and know how to use them without supervision. Start with a prepared idea of where you are going and how long all of your party are going to take. Bring a fully charged mobile phone but know you can't rely on it. Bring a torch with batteries you checked.

You will need at least a 45 litre rucksack to put this into.
