  • Look at the map and devise an itinerary that moves you from far to near. Start the day away. End the day closer to home.

  • Big breakfast; carbohydrates and proteins.

  • Drink plenty of water. Repeat.

  • Work out, go for a walk, or otherwise get some exercise after breakfast. That will get your metabolism cooking.

  • Start early. Be at your first destination when the doors open at noon.

  • Bring water and stay hydrated between stops.

  • Drink plenty of water. Repeat.

  • Snacks. Lots of snacks.

  • Growlers. You never know what you might run into so it is always a good idea to have a growler or two with you, especially considering the next piece of advice.

  • Designate a driver. Buy your DD dinner at the end of the night. Fill a couple of growlers for them along the way. Incentivize the adventure for your driver.

  • Drink plenty of water. Repeat.
