It really is fun, isnt it?
Are you speaking from experience with the tree thing?

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

Yes, only in my case it was a 12 ft high overhead door that drifted down slightly just enough that my AC hit it as I was backing it into the garage. Fortunately, the damage was mostly to the door, but it cost me $350.00 to replace a door panel. The Ac cover was rubbed a little but no harm done. Live and Learn.

In my experience a list is nice but we always forget to put something on it! Best way to know is just go, if you forgot something you never will forget again after that!

Beer (cold), clean underwear and firewood. A lighter may help too. Everything else is just showing off...

the rest depends on what you plan to eat and drink and how you're going to cook.

In addition to the items listed already;

Positive attitude
Good sense of humor
Credit card
Some cash
Mattress topper
Beer (or wine or spirits)
Extra fuses (for truck AND trailer)
At least a basic tool set that includes duct tape (or Gorilla tape actually) and wd-40
At least one extra set of clothes
Jacket or sweatshirt

Edit: There isn't much I can't handle with just the first 4 items!
