Packing Volume 3: The Tank Bag Edition

In addition to clothes and camping stuff, we have some random important things we are bringing in the tank bag. Here they are:

Misc. Necessary Items

2 headlamps
2 Platypus 1L water bottles (they are cool because they are soft plastic so they can change shape to fit better)
1 First aid kit
2 Journals
3 Books (Wind Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Persig, and The General in His Labyrinth by Gabriel García Márquez
1 Ziploc full of toiletries, sunscreen, etc.
1 30 gb iPod
1 MyTouch 3G Slide w/ 8 gb and 16 gb memory
1 Olympus Stylus1030 SW Digital Camera w/ 2 2 gb memory cards
1 adaptor so we can charge our stuff using the USB cord and the motorcycle lighter.

Tank Bag Packed

It seems like everything is going to fit in the tank bag with just a little room to spare. That is until I think of something else we have to bring.
