I have had that bike for about 3 months now, and I still love it. I upgraded the rear derailleur because a friend of mine gave me a better one in a trade for my old one, he said he didn't care. Oh and I put a saddle some other guy gave me on there because I too didn't like the one it came with, but other than that it's stock.
Remember to drink water, especially when it starts getting warmer(where you are). a multi tool is good to carry with you incase you break a chain or something of that nature. Stuff to fix a flat isn't a bad idea, you'd need either a tube and a pump or a patch kit and a pump or all of it. Stay on the trails.
with that bike watch the front wheel going up hill, mine will come up if I am not careful. wear a helmet, maybe some glasses so the branches don't knock your retina's out.
