This is what I use:

24 mm wrench for rear axle nut (rider wrench)

12 mm wrench for rim lock

Valve stem wrench (I use valve caps that have one)

2 tire irons

Small vice grips to hold bead on remount

Patch kit

Spare tube (a front will work in the back in a pinch)

CO2 cartridges and cracker.

Saw a neat trick a couple years ago. You can patch a tube without taking th e wheel off. Haven't tried it yet though.
