I like to make one nighters a bit of an occasion..so stove, decent grub, a bottle of wine, tent, mat and bag....plus ear plugs for the dawn chorus. If there is a shower near by thats nice but not essential.

Most of what has been said plus a clean pair of shorts for following day, or clean pair of short liners.
