2. The list above is the bare minimum of what you should be bringing with you as your "ten" essesntials. Along with the list above, it would be a good idea to bring the following as well:
    1. a whistle
    2. a mirror (small)
    3. toilet paper
    4. batteries
    5. duct tape
    6. your scout book
    7. scissors
This is just a small portion of the things one should bring on top of their "ten" essentials.
