Being prepared.

I read where a runner broke her pelvis in the mountains and saved her life by virtue of a shower cap in her kit despite two nights in sub zero conditions. Then of course she was left with debilitating hospital fees to try and pay off. We don't know how lucky we are living in a country with a welfare state.

Even more valuable is to carry an emergency locator beacon. Not cheap but a must have for manic outdoorsy types like you Jeff.

I have one permanently on my person even when MTBing the Wellington hills.

You never know when one might come handy: Might tumble off the track down into the bush and scrub one evening ride! Or you might come across a seriously injured person in a place with no cell phone cover.
