I carry a minimalist wash kit if going away for anything longer than a day. A bar of non-perfumed soap, toothbrush and paste, anti-bacterial talc and a lightweight towel all squeeze into a small dry bag about the size of a tin of beans. Keep your soap in a little net bag: you can then hang it on a branch and use it through the mesh without having to take it out. Anti-bacterial talc is great for rubbing into soggy feet at the end of the day, and you will need a lightweight camping towel. Don’t forget a roll of toilet paper.

Simply tilt your mirror until it catches the sun and aim the reflected spot of light in the rough direction of whomever you need to signal to. An easy way to aim the light spot accurately is to hold your hand at arm’s length, obscuring the distant rescue team you need to signal to. Sight through the central hole and watch to make sure the reflected light spot falls onto your hand, then remove your hand to ensure that the bright spot is being aimed at the right place. ) Tilting the mirror or replacing your hand hides the reflection again, and this process of revealing and hiding the reflection is what creates the highly visible flash.

A good example here is the hill walker who only carries a mobile phone as their ‘survival kit’, showing a total reliance on mountain rescue teams to carry them home to safety should anything go wrong. Much better to ensure that the chances of finding yourself in trouble are minimized by checking the weather reports before a trip and having a plan to follow one of several short cuts or escape routes back to safety. Get used to noticing potential risks before they develop into life-threatening situations and aim to become experienced enough to decide on the correct course of action.
