What accessories do I need?
I have been looking at Ebay for iPad accessories, and there are a lot of bundled packages that interest me. However, I'm not really sure I need the stylus and a few others just "thrown in."
I definitely want a screen protector, a case, another wall outlet charger, perhaps a car charger (for geocaching.) What else am I missing?

Screen is made of glass like material. While I use a screen protector on my BlackBerry, I have no such need on my iPad. In my humble opinion. A good case and car charger is all you need.

If you are going to get an aftermarket charger, make sure it says that it is specifically for an iPad since it takes quite a bit more juice to charge than an iPod or iPhone.
And if you get an aftermarket charger, stay away from crap like this --

Stick with a name brand like Griffin or Belkin.
I Agree, You paid a premium price for your IPad
Why buy cheap accessories?
I have a Zaggmate with blue tooth keyboard. I have an invisible shield screen protector--I would rather scratch the screen protector than the glass. I also have a Stylus-R-Us Roger iWand, an Apple camera connection kit, and an Apple dock stand. A friend of mine gifted a car charger but I have never needed to use it--the iPad's battery lasts long enough. I also have the Apple carrying case which was replaced by the Zaggmate.
I want to buy more stuff for the iPad but other than what I have and the growing number of apps in my iPad, there isn't much additional stuff I can buy.
All you need is the Ipad Case, Keyboard Dock, Camera Connection Kit and USB Power Adapter.
A little off topic here, but does anybody know if the keyboard dock works when there is a case on the iPad? I suppose it depends on the case?
i got a case, targus stylus from best buy, camera connection kit and the longer wall outlet charger. the shorter one that comes with the iPad is carried in my bag just in case.
All you need is a car charger, maybe an extra wall charger and a carry case that's it.
Yeah, case, apple dock, and photo connector is all that's really needed.
iPad doesn't need a screen protector. iPhone however, does due to conditions (dust in pockets, keys, ect. iPad..well I don't toss it around like a phone.
iPad mini 16GB wifi White & Silver
I iPhone 5 Verizon 16GB White & Silver
I iPhone 4 Verizon 16GB Black (Retired to iPod like activities)
I Late 2011 MacBook Air 13"
Yes, it would generally depend on the case but for the most part probably not unless the case is really thin.

There's another case called the mCover which appears to be thin enough to mount in the Apple docks even though there's no special access panel on it or anything like that.
I forgot the name but there's another shell case that is split into two halves - you remove the bottom half to allow it to dock. To me though that's not really better than removing the whole case.
