In late April, Adventure Medical Kits ambassador Rebecca Rusch joined the Italy Divide Ride, an 850k self supported ride from Rome to Torbole. Here is her recount of this unique event.

Beginning at the Eternal City, Rome, riders had the opportunity to pass some of the most famous archaeological sites in the capitol before riding the ancient Via Francigena (connecting France and Rome) toward Tuscany. Siena, the Chianti countryside, and climbing the Apennines to Bologna are some of the course highlights before finishing the race in Torbole at the Lake Garda Bike Festival.

Let us know if you have a similar story to share!

“Two years ago, amidst a hailstorm in the middle of the night, I hunkered down and pulled out my space blanket, only to be showered with little metallic shardes that had once been part of the useless clear sheet I held in my hand. Needless to say, that was a miserable night!

Comment:

I took an Ultralite .5 First Aid kit and added these Adventure Medical Kit items: 1 person HeatSheets Blanket, Signal mirror, Firestarter, & Whistle.

It is compact, fits easily in a pocket and weighs about 7 oz. Plus it looks cool!

My two cents. Kurt

Which kit should I choose?

Question:

Here’s a basic question… I’m getting back into backpacking after a good decade off. I am a 42 year old male and I will initially be taking 2-3 night trips in relatively remote locations . Some solo, but factor having up to 2 additional companions. Based on this info, can you offer some advice on which first aid kit would be the best combination of preparedness and size for this activity?

Which kit to purchase?

Friday, November 14th, 2008

Question:

1) I am a field member on our county Search & Rescue team. 2) I will be finishing with my Wilderness First responder certification in a few weeks. 3) I spend tons of time in the back country of colorado year round. From ice climbing to mountain biking. I have always carried a small field first aid kit, have have added more and more items over the years.

Can you recommend a kit (for personal use) that I could use while hiking, biking, climbing, etc… in very reomte areas that can deal with everything from allergies to major trauma.
