RV cooks - what spices do you bring along?

Getting ready to hit the road for two months. I'm no gourmet cook but I can whip up a few recipes now and then.
I want to bring along some (about 7-8) commonly used spices but I'm at a loss as to which ones I should bring.
Suggestions from the more seasoned cooks out there?

My wife takes

Savory Spices
Salt
Pepper
Morton Nature Season
Dehydrated onion
Garlic Salt
Basil
Oregano
Crushed red pepper
Sweet Spices
Ginger
Cinnamon
Baking soda
Baking powder
Cornstarch

Powder sugar
Brown sugar
Granulated sugar

She put the spices in baggies, marked appropriately and then in a little rubbermaid container.

The original packaging is to bulky and does not get smaller as you use the product.

These condiments move from house fridge to RV fridge each trip, regardless of meals planned:
Butter, ketchup, spicy brown mustard, A1 steak sauce, mayo or Miracle Whip, Salt/Pepper, Cavendar's meat seasoning, sweet relish. Covered dish of chopped onions if we think of it. Neither of us use tobasco sauce.

Himalayan pink salt, coarse ground black pepper and not a spice, but extra virgin oilve oil.

With these 3 things, you can make any once living thing delicious.

Oh man, no way can I leave the Tabasco behind.

Good idea. I may do the same.

Arlan's list is pretty good. I'd add the following:

* Old Bay Seasoning (us mid-atlantic folk don't eat seafood without it!)

* Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning

* McCormick Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning

* Cinnamon-Sugar Blend (for easy Cinnamon Toast)

* Onion Powder (I like the taste of onion, but don't like the texture of 'em)

* Chili Powder (I like to make my own hot dog chili)

* Crushed Red Pepper (don't eat pizza w/o it)

* S&B Ichimi Togarashi... a Japanese 5-spice blend that adds a little to kick to my Yakitori or other Japanese dishes.

Can't forget the taco seasoning. We make a thing called walking tacos which is easy & great to have at lunch. Beats stopping at a fast food place while out on the road.

As a weekend camper I don't have a list of stock items, I'll usually carry just what I need based on my menu for that trip.

I've used just about every item on these list at one time or another, but there is one thing missing... and being from the Southwest I use all the time.

Cumin... you can't make charro beans or chili without it!!!
