Personally I find StackOverflow to be good for personal development. We should all spend some time trying to debug code without a compiler now and then.

No fire, I rely on a stove these days. Fire might be an option once a week though so I could consider that. Thank you.

comment What are essential items in an emergency kit?
Signal mirror. In some areas they are more useful than others. For instance though, if search and rescue is looking for you, you can use it to signal a plane. You can also use it to signal from a suitably high location to another ground location, but that is trickier. It's almost never used, but if you've fallen and broken a leg, you're likely not going to be able to get a smoke column going and this may be your only way to let S&R know where you are.

IMO --- That's a full hiking list, not an emergency kit. An emergency kit needs to be something that will always be on your person, even when you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

comment What should you do if you see a rattle snake?
I would add that rattlesnakes (at least the eastern diamondbacks) almost never miss, so staying out of range is critical. They are one of the most accurate snakes in the world. Also if you walk "heavy" or make noise you'll generally never see them. They usually flee larger animals that they can feel coming.
