Thanks Bingley.

It is a time of happiness, but mixed with lots of other emotions. To make it easier to swallow, I have to remind myself that a few decades ago, I have stolen someone else's "little baby". LOL

Blast, so what's your final list? It would be great to have it as a reference. Some of us might give the same sort of present to the college kids in our lives...

Instead of a crescent wrench I would prefer a groove joint pliers. Equally adjustable to all sizes of bolts but in my experience groove joint bites into the bolt harder when squeezing the handle.

Think about the chaos caused by the loss of a student id/keycard or debit card...and how to quickly replace either.

Luckily(?) she has experienced a similar event and is now MUCH better at keeping track of those things.

If not already otherwise packed, suggest:

1. some kind of first aid kit, OTC meds

2. battery cell phone charger, 20-30,000 maH. If charged at the start of the school year, it should hold almost all of its charge all year. A number of these also have an LED light for another source of light.

3. If a grid down situation lasting more than half a day or so, consider an Esbit style or sterno stove or UCO 3 candle lantern for hot drinks, and a bit of light and warmth. Using these outside of a closed space remains important; these probably would be a good idea or allowed in a dorm setting. I'm guessing even the Yankee Candles or their equivalent candle-in-a-jar generic versions are not allowed in college dorms.
