Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

We've all at one time or another forgot or had to borrow something while on a camping adventure, I've borrowed or got lent hoses, plugs, leveling blocks, wood even hamburger [blame it on the DW she was suppose to pack the cooler at that time] what are things you have had to borrow?

First/last trip of 2013 went to a RV park thought I had it down after spending a few weeks on this site.
Got up there in good order after a stop over at the dealer to get a door replaced and a joint taped.
Site was to be a back in, not a problem as the host changed it to a pull thru.
Level was easy as was hooking up the water, power and sewer.
Got down to the cable hookup, routed the cable (30') and came out about three feet short....
AHHHHHHH!
K, I will just back up about four feet then I thought *call the host.
He had some extra cable and a barrel coupling and brought them over.
I now carry about 100' and two couplings, so if you need some just ask will be glad to loan some out.

So far I have gotten off with only borrowing a dab of mustard. It was before I was able to hitch up by myself so I didn't disconnect the truck. About midway through the trip I really hungry for a fried ham sandwich only to find out I forgot the mustard. Somewhere down the line I will be in good company with the rest of you guys.

Was at a local park and decided to make a trip home to get rid of some stuff. When I got ready to leave campsite the next morning realized that the pin to hold the hitch in the socket was in the basket with the kindling at the house. Could have driven the eight miles home to get it but neighbor loaned me one and saved the trip. I now keep two spares in the truck.

Once while on a camping w/e, I forgot coffee and it was too early for the store. Some other early bird took pity and borrowed me enough to make a pot. I'm sure I looked like a withdrawing addict lost in space. Phew! Got Coffee just in time.

WOW the coffee...oh man Dw2b forgot the coffee filters and I had to make one out of a paper towel.
I had to borrow a 50amp to 30 amp plug once, now I have one.

Sewer hose was to short but before I had a chance to go buy more the camp host saw my problem & offered to sell me an extra one that he carried with him. Do you think he may have run into that before & knew to keep a few small items on hand. I was thankful because it was several miles to any place that sold sewer hoses.
