I mean yah, you take the GPSer,, some swag, a pencil/pen, camera, and ziplocks. But what more should you bring or what do YOU bring that's diffrent or you think is essential?

fishing line with hook, string with magnets attached, tweezers, if its a hiker, hiking stick. old TV antenna with neo magnet, plastic grocery bag[for cito should area need it] spare batteries for gps.

If it's a park and grab, or a very short walk to the cache, all I take with me is a notepad (To write which geocache I've found) and pen, but in my geocaching bag, I have a first-aid kit (From Dollar Tree), neosporin, anti-itch cream, After-Bite, extra logbooks, pens, pencils, geocaching pamphlets (For those interested), my swag, a Gopher Grabber tool, rope, a Leatherman multi-tool, a knife, compass, fold-up shovel, and hat

What doesn't stay in the car, travels easily in my camera bag. My GPS is on a lanyard and I keep my keys, phone and pepper spray in my pockets.

It means the only thing it could mean:

 

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

And a gentle reminder that Towel Day is May 25th.
