Counting Up Essentials, part 1
This skills program is the first half of a look at the ten essentials. Are there ten, and why are they essentials?
Since it's mysterious introduction by the Mountaineers early in the twentieth century, the 10 Essentials have been the list that everyone should know, and few could recite with certainty. In this edition, Doug Ritter, the executive director of the Equipped To Survive Foundation, and Amy Racina, author of the book Angels in the Wilderness, compare notes on some of their ideas of the 10 essentials.
Next week, in part two, we'll finish Doug's list, and you'll find out what happened to Amy.
