sounds stupid.. but hand soap and air freshener. stuff you might be able to buy in port, but for me, hand soap is critical to daily operations. can't stand dirty hands!
another thing is i wish i had extra black socks. i wear black every night now, and wasn't anticipating it.
more than enough computer games for my mac, and a lot of songs in my itunes. imagine listening to the same stuff for 6 months straight. even a playlist of 2,500 songs gets old!!
it's the little, non essential things you wish you had more of! things to make it more like home.
