first....Nice diesel truck.
second....Cool girl...
third....Booze!!!

That about sums it up for me.....But maybe a little portable stove. A portable shower, some wood, some matches, Canned food, basically same as a dune trip, but just be careful with the fires and also maybe a bear can, so bears dont eat your food.

skip the matches.i take a lighter(bic) and if going deep in the woods i take a magnesium spark fire starter.they are pretty awesome.shave some metal off it and then strike the other side with steel and bingo,you got fire.umm tp is nice,food if you dont like catching your own(or you suck at it).a shelter of some type. beer,i like pabst or keystone for camping.from there it just depends on where im going.550 cord(string of some type is always useful).duct tape.hell the more i think about it the more i come up with stuff.

The only thing i would add is a gun, especially if going in bear country. I never leave home without a gun of some sort!

If in bear country a gun otherwise you dont need it.

Also since you are in the woods. Deep woods off or some other kind of bug repellent.

Matter of opinion

If you're camping somewhere that allows it, it would be a great time to get in some recreational shooting.
