Default Water report complete

So I just got my water report back from Ward Labs. I'm going to all grain with my next batch so a water report, IMO, was a must. I'll be using Beersmith 2.0 and the EZ Water Calculator to help me along the way. I have a general understanding of water chemistry and how it pertains to homebrewing from reading countless threads on here. I wanted to post my results and see what you guys thought. What I'd like to get from this is what salts should I have on hand to adjust my water to basically brew any type of beer? I brew mostly IPA's and Browns at this point, but want to have things available to adjust my water for other styles if need be. Will dilluting with R/O or distilled be necessary for certain styles? Anything stick out as crazy with my report?

THANKS FOR THE HELP!!!!!

This is well water, if that makes any difference.
