RE:South Tip Rip Trip

Before we let the lore carry us away let's list exactly what the dangers are and the best way to confront them. Rips are dangerous for those who stand in them. I typically don't. Fog is dangerous, so bring a compass, take occasional readings if you're wading flats. What else? Tics, poison ivy, dehydration. There will also be plenty of hiking I assume. The one thing that surprised me on the North Mon. trip was the ammount of hiking. I'm in good shape so I didn't mind it so much, but there was a lot. So one might need to find the balance between having everything for a safe trip yet light enough to walk 4 miles through sand. Anything else?
