    my dog had a secondary tag on her collar, that said her name, my name(including my trail name) a phone #
    and it also said we were hiking the appalachian trail(so they knew we were hiking together) and yes we had a leash(you never know)
    if you like it-go with it :-)

    Is it protocol on the AT to place one tag in the victim's mouth and the other in your own left shirt pocket?

    Great idea! You might even get your camera back if you lay it down somewhere.

    Yep. And be sure to make it a "locked" photo so when uploading and deleting photos it doesn't get erased.

    I think always having ID on your person is a wise idea.

    If you don't live in the south, you might take care there to enunciate when discussing this topic. As in " You got any I.D.? ", and the response too often will be " 'bout what? "

    Okay, that off my chest ... I'm with jj2044 here. It seems to me that the drivers license I carry is sufficient. Certainly some sort of identification in the backpack is a good idea too.
    Dog tags made practical sense in the service; I'm not inclined to wear something like that now. Exception might be going for a run in clothes without pockets, but that doesn't apply to hiking scenarios.
