1- Every air-mattress has a hole. 2- Your shoe makes a perfect cup holder in the van.  3- Pod casts will save your sanity.  4- Bring your own soap, hotel soap will make you itch. 5- Have multiple phone chargers, you will lose them. 6- The most important item next to your instruments is a pillow. 7- Bring a soccer ball(football). 8- At&t has far better coverage than T Mobile.  9- Mobile Wifi is a game changer.  10-Airlines don’t check if you have 1 carry-on or 3. 11-Add 2 hours on any drive. 12-Half of the sound guys are failed musicians, so they will hate you immediately.  13-Ask fans to stay at their house, chances are you will be in a mansion. 14-Bring a personal flashlight.  15-Beef Jerky is not an actual meal. That goes for anything else you will find in a gas station. 16-Music will break any barrier.
