Gear Tuesday: Here's quick first-aid for the kids


One of the best pieces of first-aid equipment when camping with kids is simple antiseptic spray.

Most of the boo-boos are from scratches and scrapes and the spray does the trick fast and easy.

Put a Lightning McQueen Band-Aid on the scrape and all's well.

Small sprays are a few bucks at the drug store and worth having in your daypack along with the regular first-aid kit.

I almost used a whole spray bottle on a recent campout with the grandkids. There was lots of log walking and balance wasn't too good.
