    most of the stuff I carry has already been listed with the same uses that I use them for. If I've missed someone else mentioning this, please forgive...
    tyvek, 2'x4' piece: used as... a ground cover if I don't have trees for my hammock, as a rain block under my hammock for any gear there, folded under my hammock for my feet when I take off shoes and getting in and out of hammock and as a place to sit for lunch

    My hammock can serve as a tarp as well
    Crocs for a 2nd pair of shoes to get your feet out of your hiking boots for a bit
    Spork for eating utensil does everything a fork and spoon would
    Empty food pouches to store other garbage in to keep the scent down

    and I am going to now use my pack cover for gear storage after seeing that suggested here.

    Poncho is the ultimate multi-use piece of gear, and now that I can use it as an underquilt, so is my woobie.

    My Tyvek Tarp/Groundsheet

    I love my ugly DIY Tyvek groundsheet. I cut it Caternary as a small backup tarp. I have no guylines on it but at the six tieouts I have a loop of paracord attached by a sheet bend. When I need it as a tarp I just attach some of my STLs (Self Tensioning Lines, a' la Zing-it), but normally I just use it on the ground for throwing gear onto. In a pinch it is my groundsheet if I have to Go to Ground. And as an added bonus, if the rain starts to really pour I can just tie it over my pack as a makeshift pack cover..

    It is an incredible safety piece of equipment based on its ultralight 4 or 5 oz.

    Cheap, versatile, light, rugged, and because the stuff is usually destined for the landfill (get a roll end from a buddy in construction) it is also an eco-friendly way to re-purpose.

    55 gallon 3mil thick trash bag.

    Ground cloth, pack cover, sit pad, emergency shelter, emergency raingear, water collector, water carrier, windbreak/screen, etc...

    I loves me a good trash bag! =-)

    Space blankets are also great to use as a fire reflector/waterproof sheeting/raingear/etc...

    Ridgeline is stronger than it needs to be for its purpose. I don't have to have a ridgeline at all, but if I lose an essential suspension part or need so much strong cordage, there it is, flying overhead.
