Dr. Dave's list of cheap -but important- stuff

Snakebite

“There are two things to have with you when you get bitten—a set of car keys and someone to drive you to the hospital. If you have a cell phone, call ahead and let them know you are on the way.”

Whit Gibbons is professor emeritus of ecology at the University of Georgia, retired senior ecologist at the Savannah River Ecology Lab and a research professor at the University of South Carolina-Aiken.
