a) when actually out riding trails.
when going away for a weekend riding trip (with truck).
What kind of things may save me a long walk in the future?
Any help or links to information appreciated.

You can get into carrying survival gear also, but, this is a personal preference thing. It also depends on wether or not you ride alone. If you do you have to be prepared for a lot more circumstances.

My fanny pack has:
99cent rain poncho
camelback bite valve
first aid kit with serious pain killers, bandages..etc.
misc tools - small scotts ratchet and sockets
buddy tow strap
power bars and candy
I run IRC V33 tires, which I've ridden flat for over 40 miles back to the truck. Dunlop 756 don't hold up as well, 10 miles of riding it flat and the tire was coming apart.
In the truck I keep spare tubes, tire irons, spare levers, JB weld, slime, tire pump, second set of riding gear for day two if it rains on day one.
