Someone needs to make up a lightweight "survival kit" you can keep in your vehicle..without all the "bling"..and go out and use the thing
..shelter/food/fire(wood and alcohol fuel)/water purification..and keep it light.
I would think something could be setup that weighs less than 10lbs,even carried in a small nylon bag w/ a shoulder strap instead of a full backpack(weight reduction).Something you could store in your car.
Suggestions(add what you think might be necessary):
2 space blankets
2-3 trash bags
minimal dry long term storage "subsistance" food (say for 3 days..suggestions?)
minimal cooking /eating supplies
water containers(clean and dirty)..aluminum bottle and bottled water bottle(lightweight)
2-3 types of firestarter/tinder..extra fuel(one bottle of heet?)?
minimal "weapons"..something for cutting branches,and a swiss army knife for the rest.
50-100 feet of lightweight cord
minimal directional equipment(compass) and FAK..
Say if your car got stuck in a ditch 15-20 miles up an old logging road and you needed to hike out because more than likely you wouldn't be found for a few days...
