ORASK, off road adventure survival kit. If not sure ORASK!!! shelter food/water communications/signaling first aid I was so concerned with a tool bag and having enough spares to repair my bike . I neglected some points on first aid and general survival. Sure I always carried spare food (broken down MRE's don't take up much space) extra water and multiple fire starters. Things I have missed a real shelter a real first aid kit and a way too visually signal for help. Emergency shelters, here are a few good product less than a pound and under 50$ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk_PM_XD2EE http://grabberworld.com/products/grabber-outdoors/hooded-all-weather-blanket.html First aid kits I'm think in terms of military IFAKS but support more off road type injuries head, neck, back and bleeding. Not ruling out puncture wounds. Things to be carried: splints, compact neck braces, tourniquets, Israeli bandages. Wound care: irrigation antiseptics and bandages. Here is just a general idea of how small it can be and military philosophy just and example for first aid puncture/bleeding care. Its a start. I'd add to and build on kit to handle off road trauma issue's. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJOf51TdVJw Get trained in CPR and at the very least general first aid. Emergency communication and signaling devices to get heard and seen to be rescued. The obvious cell phone Amateur radio operator or Ham radio operator, requires license.
