      In my line gear I have two nalgeen bottles of water, fusees, file (for sharpening tools), canteen cup, spare socks, cheap raincoat, space blanket, first aid kit, tuna and crackers, granola bars, 2L camel bak of water, poison ivy soap, baby wipes, misc medication, Emergen-C liquid drink mix, flashlight, batteries, bandana, boot laces, flagging, some other misc odds and ends.
      One thing to remember is keep things as light as you can, but don't skimp on the water.
