Default Top ten items to carry with you as a trail leader

So let the fun begin!

What are the top ten most essential items you carry with you as a trail leader?

Not what you take with you if you go wheeling but as a LEADER or GUNNER.

Here is my list;

1. Water
2. First aid kit as big as I can afford
3. Snickers bar(s) and or some type of chocolate
4. Cell phone/charger
5. Space blanket/survivor kit
6. GPS with charger and extra batteries/manual compass
7. Matches or lighter
8. Sharp knife
9. Map of the area
10. Sunscreen

This list contains all of the things that are in my truck when I lead or gun a trail. I have more items of course and if it is a CM trail I have the items that they give me too. I just want to see what other people think should be in the top ten of things they feel they have to take with them.

So let the lists begin

that's sweet, I am glad you got a shot of it

that there is a professional job.

edit: this instance prompted me to get a set of c-clamps for the trail tool box. That c-clamp was dang handy.

Gorilla duct tape, ratchet straps, bag of nuts and bolts, gear oil and pump and perhaps a small gas can with gas.
