iPod touch offline tips please

What is the easiest way to dump and or sync a directory (or two) of documents to my iPod Touch (v4?) 32Gb iOS 5.0.1 for access when offline.
I want to use my iPod Touch as my sole computing device when travelling abroad and was hoping there was a way to dump a bunch of data onto it. pdfs, txt files, .docs, pngs, jpgs, travel details, notes, reading material etc. Generally I wont' have Wi-Fi access so I want offline apps / offline storage tips.

There are a few older threads from 2009 but I thought perhaps there are new apps that can do this?
I"ve tried Dropbox but it doesn't cache all the documents on the iPod Touch. (unless you "star" them and even then its not so certain that you will have that particular document).
I"m trying out Evernote but have just about hit that 60Mb monthly limit on day 1. I've also been using Simplenote which is good for text notes but can't handle anything more.
For maps I've been using CityMaps2Go which allows you to buy maps of individual cities and gives offline access.
For language translators I"ve got a few of the Accio offline language translators and quite like those (and they are cheap).
I actually use the iPod a lot - every day. but just not for music. Apple doesn't seem to favour that though.
