Okay so over the past week I have become OBSESSED with DIY projects and cheap and easy ways to prepare for this hike. This is a really cool idea, not just for backpacking but for all kinds of first aid kits!!! I just made a ton full of color coded burn cream, triple antibiotic ointment, hydrocortizone and poison ivy wash. Might also make some with petrol jelly, stuff for chafing, etc. I’m not going to go totally overboard because I know most thru hikers pack WAY too much, but its so cool now I’ve got the option of packing ‘single serving’ portions in a first aid kit. My roomate looked a little nervous though when she saw me burning things inside and making funny smells haha! Click the image below for the webpage with photos and DIY instructions!
