- alcohol for fuel, sterilization, and emergency mood reassignment (i keed you)
- all sorts of meds, most are mixed up in a sak but i'm familiar with their colors - benadryl, claratin, excedrin (aspirin, caffiene, tylenol), ibuprofen, immodium, pepto bismol tabs, tylenol

- bit of medical tape and duct tape
- butterfly closures
- cordage (guy lines)
- hand sanitizer
- tiny tube of crazy glue
Might be other stuff I haven't remembered...
Looking into acetazolamide for AMS - I hear a little coca to chew also works well.
edit: Looking at your list reminds me... I need to find one of those tiny plastic tweezers for my kit. They have come in way too handy for those incessant cholla/cactus spines. Steroidal anti-inflam cream helps as well. Use duct tape to remove (nearly) invisible glochid spines.
Mike, I was curious what the syringe is for? Irrigating what - a blister, massive infections? What about the amoxicillin? I'm not versed on antibiotics, but what would this help with? Sickness from dirty water? Do you bring a whole regimen of the pills and have to keep taking these everyday ow what? Is it fast acting? Seems like it'd only be useful on long (ie. multi week) hikes from the sound of it, no?
