Great ideas mentioned above: I would recommend–strongly–that you have those items at hand not only in rural situations but in urban environments as well: You might need them in order to make your way to a rural environment in a SHTF situation! The need for being prepared does NOT end when one enters an urban environment! Semper Paratus as they say!
