you need to bring moist towlets for the last minute trip to the over used Portopotty.....this is the very essence of triathlon. Waiting on line at 6am with strangers all anxious to visit the plastic nightmare called Portopotty.....I luv to just chat with people as we all need to drop a deuce.....It makes me laugh evertime..so yes a Moist wipe is Key

backpack (to put everything in)
2 water bottles, wallet/keys/entry details/phone/towel, book

I like the idea of moist wipes lol
