Just saying.
I definitely go with 1 and 5 above. Gotta add WD40 to the tool list, though. (NOT for drinking!!!)

And the FIRST trip that you leave it home, because you "never use it", you will absolutely need it. Please DON'T ASK me about the trip that I learned this! LOL!!

I forgot one. First aid kit. We get the ones off of the drilling rigs which are quite a bit more involved than what you get at most places. They have been used quite a bit due to kids, and me of course.

I am afraid to go 2 miles without a complete set of tools, so I have all kinds of tools with me all the time.
But I thought about this a bit and came up with this:
What tools do I use every time I camp? A camp axe. It's a hammer and an axe and very sharp. I use it to drive in stakes and make stakes when I can't find one. It's a camping tool. Next is a flashlight. Next is a Leatherman wave. IMHO this is a right of passage tool for a man. Not saying you are a boy if you don't wear one of these everywhere you go, but just saying......

What other tools do I use most times I camp? Refer to above.

I've seen the Leatherman Wave mentioned in a couple of posts now. While familiar with the Leatherman name, I had never had a proper introduction to the Wave name until very recently. While shopping at Bass Pro Shops in Utica NY last weekend, my 20 yr old son walked up to me with a black one in his hand and stars in his eyes. Since I had already laid down a good chunk of money for a couple of Glock pistols for the Mrs and I over at the gun counter and now had a new Columbia coat for the daughter in our basket I just let him toss it into the mix for dear old dad to pay for. At checkout I learned it's value when the thing scanned through at just under a Benjamin. I have to be honest, I haven't seen it since as he quickly squirreled it away for purposes unknown. He did, however, mention to me after checkout that his girlfriend had already purchased the camo version of the Wave for him for Christmas for him to have and use on drill weekends (National Guard). You read that right...the scammer got 2 of them for free! Sadly, I still haven't laid eyes on one for more than a moment or two.
