Have a flat? Don't forget to carefully check the inside of the tire for the culprit and carry a pair of needle nose to pull the wire/nail out.
Stay well hydrated and eat frequently.
Journal your ride. It'll make you more observant of the scenery and of the people you meet. Be sure to include personal trials/tribulations, highs and lows. Makes for a more interesting read.
