It's so I wont forget about making one.
And it builds interest. So that's a plus.
How bout this one?
Okay, so ive mulled on this one for awhile. And really looked at it realistically.
90% of my commute is within 20 miles of home. So, worst case scenario, I have to abandon my vehicle, and hike home. I carry a lot of gear in the vehicle. Some of which i would attempt to pack with me. But, for the sake of the topic ive condensed it to what i feel, i could survive with, on a 20 mile hike, in an urban/rural environment.
I also put this together from
what i already had available. I did not have to shop for anything in the kit. Granted, some of it was in various places, i just had to combine it.
-Phone case, this was a Christmas gift, since im not an avid canoe/kayaker, it was sitting unused
-Cash, we all know green talks, wether it saves you from a beating by some scumbag thugs, or buys you a ride, or some water or food, most people wont turn it down.
-Mylar blanket, bright and shiny to signal with, wrap up to keep out the wind, reflect heat from a fire, keep the rain off of you, carry water, or wrap something.
-Lighter, obviously the quickest, easiest way to make fire.
-Duct tape, minor repairs, bandages, keeping someone quiet, restraining an assailant, fire extender,
-Super glue, highly flammable, easier than stitches. Will stop some bloodflow. Keeps out infection
-Ferro rod, fire making redundancy, should the lighter fail for whatever reason.
-Tinder quick, a compliment to the Ferro rod, as a fire extender, to ease fire starting in inclament/emergency conditions.
-Folding knife, although i usually have at least one good fixed blade always nearby, there again redundancy, as this is a last ditch kit.
- Cordage, in this case #36 tarred bank line. Approx 25 feet, or 4 of my wingspans. Shelters, lashing, snares, garrote line, gear repair, restraints, etc.

One option, instead of the glue.. pieces from a bicycle inner tube
Speaking of rubber tubes..
