Gorilla Tape (in addition to duct tape).  It is far more weather-resistant than duct tape.

Can opener.  If you don't need it, someone else probably will.

Riot, I was about to nominate your for an award for Special Achievement in WordNerdage, but first checked, and Gunny was the first ever VD-er to post the word "facetious".
Figured that would delight all. Wink

On topic...

Kettle
I generally don't drink hot stuff, but it's essential for hygiene (a warm water wash cloth IMO is often much better than baby wipes), and Thermos cooking.
(...and, of course, as an adhoc Bagel Press Smile )

Lots of wash cloths.
Buy a 12-pack (at least), it's cheaper and you can spread them around your vehicle. I've often found that a single one really doesn't make me feel clean, but using two makes me feel human. Smile
They're also much better than paper towels for non-tiny spills.
They hardly take up any room in your laundry bag, so splurge.

+1 to TrainChaser's can opener! Smile
I have a full size clean-cut one, plus some tiny military jagged-edge cutters, plus a couple of Swiss Army Knives with can openers.

Thanks for your kind & generous support! Smile

I don’t have one Smile but a good jack to have if you have the space is one of those Jackalls some people call them that, other names for them, they are the ones with the holes in main bar they go fairly high, work good if you get stuck as you can lift high the push them over to move yourself out of ruts or get something under your wheel. I will likely get one and lock it to the back one of these days if I plan on doing more adventurous back back roads.
