-Laser flare, waterproof to 80 ft. and can be seen up to 30 miles away(very trick & spendy, but worth it) https://www.greatlandlaser.com/index.php or http://www.rei.com/OM/style/722966?c...:referralID=NA

I like the idea of heat tabs for a stove. At first I was thinking of a white gas or some kind of propane type fuel but don't know the pro's & cons out in the cold. What do mountain climbers (Everest, McKinley) use for a camp stove?
Some thing to think about is actually starting a fire while out riding. If you got kids then make it fun and bring some hot dogs to cook up and make them start the fire, the dead black branches of the evergreens make excellent fire stater. You probably couldn't do this down south in the park (regs.?) or up above the tree line, so, maybe just have a plan on how you'll make a fire. There could be finer things to ponder about but fire is just on my mind.

I just got a crank powered LED flashlight for Xmas, very cool. A flashlight is mandatory for fixing sleds in the dark and the cold wears down batteries quicker, this thing never needs new batteries and is super bright.
