    Any stories in regards to providing treatment or receiving treatment when an hour or more outside definitive medical care?
    Most common I've seen is your basic scrape or cut not taken care of properly...starts getting red, warm to the touch, and next thing you know your fellow hiker has a temp. Or poor field sanitation and someone gets the runs...setup a hand washing station (down hill, down stream, down wind, just like the bathrooms), dig a hole throw some gravel in it, hang some soap (hanging over the hole in a sock, stocking, roller gauze etc), setup a bladder above the hole, and make sure everyone at camp walks through the hand washing station.
