We were so busy catching up that we missed the turn back to the trailhead, and had to spend the night in the woods with no food or fire and nothing in our bellies. The situation may never arise again, but if it does I will be prepared.
Lol teabags and bullion cubes? If you are forced to camp out have to make sure your food still has flavor huh? What do you heat the water for the tea in :P

I carry a headlamp, small led flashlite, about 50 feet of parachute cord, leather gloves, first-aid stuff, map, waterproof matches and fire starter, couple of rolls of vet wrap, and a 42" bandana...

Yes also carry Gerber multi-tool pliers, charged cell phone, extra knives, rope,headlamps or tactical small flashlite, toilet paper or baby wipes, horse and rider first aid stuff ,water,fruit cups, compass /ETC .
The idea is to brainstorm trip ride with others on ride so different riders carry different gear if going with more than by yourself.
Like to carry also one of my scabbards with Marlin 444 or Browning BLR 7MM mag where laws permit.

Didn't see anyone mention a cellphone? That's always good to have in case of emergencies.

Only if you have service.....and in many places I ride....no service..so it's just a camera at that point.

Out riding today I actually used something from my little pack that I carry. Needed the hoof pick. That is the first time in many years that I have acutally needed anything in it and sometimes wonder why I bother to take it but you never know. I carry a cell phone with me but that is on my belt so if I come off, I have it with me and as someone else said you don't always get reception so can't always depend on it.
