antibiotic ointment
sterilizing wipies
cough drops
antihistamine
painkillers
iodine tablets for treating a quart of water each
matches and striker
and finally, oodles of duct tape wrapped around a fake credit card in my junk mail to facilitate a flat profile

Well thought out kit Skunk, I like it. No carbon fiber splints?

Good stuff!:D

May I recommend a couple large handkerchefs or similar pieces of cloth, to serve as cravats, improvised slings, etc.?

The fake credit card can be used as part of a pressure bandage.
