WTA lists the ten essential "systems" as:
Navigation
Hydration
Nutrition
Rain gear and insulation
Fire starter
First aid kit
Tools
Illumination
Sun protection
Shelter
Of these, six end with "-tion" and I feel like maybe all of them could end with -tion.
Fire starter is easy. You could call it Combustion instead.
First aid kit would be Medical Attention.

Shelter is technically Protection but that sounds weird and too all encompassing. Protection from Elements? But that would include rain gear, insulation (protection from cold) and sun protection. Any other word ending in -tion for shelter?

Any good -tion words for Tools?

Ha ha!  biggrin.gif

Although I could use "Tool, Combination", I think "Contraption" is the word to use.
