Default Out of County Bag - what do you pack?

I'm starting to put together my first out of county bag and am wondering if there are any items that should definately be included. I have a good list of recommended items, but are there any unique items which you've found really useful out on a big fire?

What might not be on the list (i don't know) that i recently introduced to my pavement princess brethren who've spent 0 time out of county are: civilian clothes so you can go out and be left alone, workout clothes because not every assignment is deathly exhausting and you might want to work out on r and r, and aspirin. Two words; smoke headache. Or is that three. Whatever.

Been off forest and out of county all summer and every summer for almost 10 years on hotshot crews and engines. Here is what is in my bag. I also bring a back pack with items I bring to and from work every shift and a therma rest sleeping pad.

14 liner socks (cotton), 7 wool socks, 5 work shirts (yes they get stinky but I'm there to work, not smell good), 1 pair extra work pants, extra yellows, 1 set of civilian clothes, running shoes, shower sandals, 1 set of extra laces, sleeping bag, therma rest pillow, swimming trunks, space blanket, jet boil, rain jacket, patagonia puff jacket that I can stuff in my pack on cold night and no underwear because I go commando.

Backpack: Tablet, cell phone chargers, external usb chargers, toiletries, meds, magazines, book, instant coffee (starbucks), pens, long sleeve shirt, sweat shirt.

Probably forgot a few things but that is pretty much it.
