Before heading off to Nova Scotia next week, leaving from Atlanta, what are some good additions to the stock tool kit as a precaution? Obviously nothing to big, bulky, or heavy and hopefully the extra weight will be a sacrifice to the gods and keep the gremlins away.

FWIW new belt and rear bearings just went in.

My first suggestion would have been everything to change the belt but you've covered that! A multi screwdriver that has some torx bits included. Adjustable wrench. Allen wrenches. Wire ties. Tire plug kit. Electrical tape. Needle nose pliers. 3/8", 7/16" and 1/2" wrenches. That's a good start anyway. Enjoy Nova Scotia! I've been there twice on my way to Newfoundland. Great people and beautiful scenery.

A tire plug kit and whatever tools you would need to remove either wheel.

I'd carry Imodium A-D in place of the Kaopectate.

it says the program is open to US residents only, so if the OP has an issue in Canada he won't be able to get any help there. It's too bad they don't let the Canadians participate.

Cell phone and/or lap top, tobacco, thermos, sandwich, credit card.
That should do it.

My personal recommendation is to take a motorhome and trailer with the required straps.

Ageing can make you see this way.
