Much of what I would have suggested has already been suggested.

The only thing I can add is really look at your personal situation as everyone’s is different… perhaps you are on prescription medication, make sure you take things like that into account.

Take into consideration where you like to go / what type of activities you like to do, make sure you have things to optimize your chances of success in those situations.

I spend most of my leisure time in the desert away from people so I put some additional emphasis on communications equipment. I have heard some pretty sad stories over the years that have really resonated with me. Having an emergency communications plan is important, I can’t stress the importance enough if you travel to areas where cellular coverage is NOT reliable.

I highly recommend a HAM radio and or a sat coms device like the Garmin InReach Mini. The InReach service is pretty great and I have been very impressed with it overall. I always thought stuff like this was far out of reach but its affordable / significantly cheaper than owning a sat phone.
