    Dont for get to bring _______ please fill in blank!!!

    Okay as I stated in one of my earlier posts I have been wanting to attend a BMWMOA rally for a few years and have finally run out of excuses not to go! I am using the Sherpa service and my question to you grizzled veterans is this: What are the "must have" items I should definitely bring with me other than my bike, money, and clean underwear????

    You are welcome to pack ear plugs, but I do provide ear plugs for my customers who want them.

    I'll try to stock up on bug repellent, but it probably would be good if everyone had a bottle in their own holster.

    Shamwow!

    You know those fake chamois that are good for everything! Wiping the bike off, wiping up a spill in the tent, drying after a shower.

    I never leave home without one.

    Thanks for the ideas it is quickly becoming obvious to me that I had neglected to think about the smaller things like bug spray and ear plugs and maybe even the Shamwow; although, I would like to take rubber hose to that guy in the commercial!!! I know this has nothing to do with this post; however, I just got back from my son and daughter's school award ceremony. He finished with a 3.99 GPA and she had a 3.6 GPA!!!! Did I mention he is in third grade and she is in first grade??? Hey it is still 3.6 and 3.99!!!!

    Go to Walmart and buy a $10/$15 headband camping flashlight. They look geeky but are great for camping, hands-free working in the garage and reading in bed. And some Sun screen.

    I can vouch for that. It was great when eating in the dark when you used both hands.

    They do look geeky as heck, but it wasn't long before everyone else around me wished they had their own.

    I'm thinking something like a Parawing or some such as at these events shade can be at a premium.

    I have been accused of being Mr. Snore-So-Loud but I am in full denial. (GUILTY!)
