You have gotten some great tips.Also dont forget plenty of paper towels,a few old towels and wash cloths.Camp matches.Dry fire starting wood.We also try and take a few firecrackers incase any kind of wild animal has any plans of sneeking up on us at night.We will sound off a few before we turn in for the night.
I also like to take reading material and my Bible.Totes to keep all of your food dry and safe and you can never take too many coolers,its better to have more than you need just incase you do need it.Coffee,dont forget the coffee.Even if your not a coffee person,this will help get you going in the morning.

Take a few garbage bags so you can pack out and leave no footprint after your trip.

For a simple privvy if you're going into the wild: take a shovel and a good strong 5 foot 4x4 board, a few longer nails and a hammer.

Dig the pit (save the earth on the side to bury it when you are leaving), and hammer the board between two stout trees. (low enough so your wife doesn't have to lift herself up to it)
Sit down and enjoy nature. When you are leaving, pull out the board, pop out the nails and take them with you.
