<P>Most of the above and. . . . . . ."WeatherReady" (by EverReady) flashlights. After winding it up for about a minute or 100 turns, it will stay on for about 20 minutes. If not using it for that long, it saves the charge for a loooooong time. Never worry about turning it on and not having some light. Zip Ties, Duct tape, Large Diaper/Safety Pins, folding shovel.</P>

Needs vary from person to person.... I "Over thought" mine prior to starting out and found much to be unnecessary. Guess it depends on how and where one wants to live. As an urban van dweller, I can usually get what's needed in a matter of minutes so don't do a lot of planing ahead. Dry camping is a whole different matter. There's a lot of "Down time" in my life style and appreciate having a laptop, little TV, satellite radio, books, and other stuff to stay entertained with. As for needs, a comfy bed, blankets, pillow, lighting, good sleeping bag, propane stove, a few sets of clothes, toiletries, pay as you go cell phone, and other basic things seem to be enough. Am glad I got a digital camera to record interesting and unusual things I see. Keeping the van tuned up is a priority as is staying modestly fit and taking good care of my teeth. That's all I can think of for now. :-) <br><br>P.S. A GPS is handy too.<br>
