2. Toiletries: comb, travel size shampoo, soap, deodorant
3. Waterproof poncho
4. Umbrella
5. Sunglasses
6. Foil blanket
7. Money: At least $500
8. Copy of my birth certificate
9. Passport
10. CD/USB backup of my documents
11. Small address book of addresses and phone numbers of people I trust
12. Copy of local public transportation routes
13. Small ever light flashlight
14. Swiss army knife or Leatherman tool
15. Titanium spork and titanium chopsticks
16. Small first aid kit
17. Baby wipes
18. Aspirin, Tylenol, Advil

20. Wind up Radio

22. 2 - 16 oz bottles of water
