    It's far too late for that this year...those get booked much earlier than this.

    Just to reiterate what others have already said - bring your most comfortable pair of walking shoes, because you WILL be putting a lot of miles on your feet during your visit, and a good pair of shoes can make all the difference in the world. SUNSCREEN! Even on cloudy days, you will be outside 90% of the time and you WILL get a sunburn if you do not protect yourself. I suggest SPF 50 or higher, and a wide brimmed hat or neckerchief to keep the sun off the back of your neck. Getting a lobster burn on the back of your neck on the first day here can really put a damper on the rest of your visit.

    To be honest, most everything else can be purchased on site or nearby, so don't worry too much if you forget to pack something.

    I always try to carry a bandana with me it comes in handy for those times I need to wipe sweat from my brow or neck or drool from my chin. Like the time I got to sit in a P-38.....

    Unfortunately in science what you believe is irrelevant.
