water purification tablets are not meant for long term use imo

also anything made of cotton is not the best choice in clothing due to water retention

some bug repellant might be a good idea depending on the area due to the prevalence of west nile virus

if you can waterproof your shoes & pack

a large trash bag is handy to cover your pack with if it rains

maybe some tevas/sandals

you can download free topo maps from http://www.topozone.com/default.asp

if not take a copy that is laminated with tape, maybe familiarize yourself with the possible terrian

COMPASS, you can get them for 5-10 dollars. even if you think dont need it, i think it would be wise

thanks for the topo maps - im choosing my root and destionations tonight and possibly tommorow, but my roommates have covered the area well, and i think it's well survivable and findable just by exploring in the day light.

I also have bugspray - Thanks for the reminder,

Aswell as biodegradable soap.

I don't have a lot to add that hasn't been mentioned already.  Let me just say this...no amount of equipment and preparation  can take the place of common sense.  99% of all people who run into problems in the wilderness actually create the problems themselves.  Or they at least take a small problem and turn it into a big one.  If something unexpected happens there is no better course of action then to stop, sit down, and think it through, before you react to the situation (assuming any immediate danger has passed).  I can't tell you how many times I've had to 'help' someone who really didn't need any help at all.  They had just lost the ability to think rationally and let panic dictate their reactions to a situation.

Hope that didn't seem like gloomy or wasted advice.  Honestly, I wouldn't worry about a thing.  I think you'll have a blast! :thumbup:
