Take the KBs with you. Many people find that after doing KB work for several weeks their deadlift improves. As far as squats/leg strength, you've got:
- front squats (single and double KB)
- overhead squats (single and double KB),
- lunges (forward, reverse, diagonal, lateral; all can be done with either one or two KBs in the racked or overhead position),
- Sumo-Deadlift High Pulls,
- pistols (unweighted and well as weighted with one or two KBs in the racked, overhead position, or held out in front of you).

Beyond KBs I'd say a med ball (which you already have) and a sandbag (which you can make for cheap). I also second the rings suggestion.
