Road trip supplies?

I'm getting ready to head to the Falcon Nationals on Tuesday, and would like to hear your suggestions for road trip supplies. I've put 19,000 miles on this car since I bought it in 2015, and it has been absolutely dependable after fixing a couple things. But, you never know...

So far I'm taking 3/8"-3/4" open ends, 1/4 & 3/8" drive socket sets, jumper cables, spare & jack, fire extinguisher, a fan belt and pre-mix antifreeze. And paid up my AAA.

Anything else you guys have found useful?

Maybe some hose clamps, electrical supplies, and tools, spare fuses, points, and condenser or spare ignition module depending on your setup, a spare coil, some oil, spark plugs, screwdrivers, adjustable wrenches (aka Crescent wrenches), and brake fluid.

Spare fuses is a great idea- hadn't thought of that; thanks.

Also duct tape and electrical tape.

Another great suggestion! Fresh out of baling wire, but I DO have duct tape.

Road trip supplies?

It is hard to take everything you might need. If I was driving to the Nationals I would be really limited on what could go along.
You know, they say if WD-40 and Duct tape can't fix it, then nothing will.
We trailer my car to Reno for Hot August Nights so I bring everything but the kitchen sink. Tool box full of all my wrenches, sockets, punches, hammers, tool box full of electrical tools, drill motor, grinder, small air compressor, large kit for electrical supplies, kit for fittings and clamps, kit with all kinds of odd items. Electric impact gun, all kinds of oils, lubes, belts, and above all. My AAA is up to date. Plenty of duct tape.
I have had to tape the roof of my Winnebago back on twice when it got blown off in Nevada.
I even saw on TV, a guy had a missing wheel on the front of his Subaru and he had duct taped a 2 X 6 board at an angle and was driving it down the road missing the wheel.
Really sorry we aren't going to Sacramento, but I needed the money anyway to replace the tires on my trailer and lights. Got those done today.
