    Last year when we made our original reservation for Arlington we were unable to get into the host hotel. The night we were in Lewisburg WV, I called the host hotel and asked if they had a open room. I didn’t want to have to room several miles away then drive back there on Saturday morning, before going into Arlington Cemetery. Yes they did. Then I asked if I could get the RFTW discount. The lady I talked to said she couldn’t make that decision but to call tomorrow and ask for a lady, we did. The lady approved the rate.

    So they may have a room open but not one with the discount.

    I’ll add another useful object for the wing. A second key handy to unlock your gas tank. I have my spare key attached to a retractable key chain I fasten to my belt loop.

    Your first trip into a gas stop you’ll see the importance to this. They will move you fast, this way you don’t have to fumble around to remove the key and replace it back in the ignition.

    My wife and I ride a wing and were FNG 2016, the saddle bags were used for quick to get to items (coat, chaps, rain coat, ect.) one side for each of us. Trunk for supplies. Our suit case was made for our luggage rack so we packed all the cloths we could in it. Rolled all the cloths and put rubber bands around them to keep them tight. Tighter they are more will fit in.  If you suit case doesn’t have a rain cover put in a heavy trash bag to keep everything dry.

    Bring a roll of quarters and pod laundry soap to do laundry as needed in the evening. We would normally wear outer clothes more than one day.

    We take the central route and some places gave us free t-shirts, and we purchased a couple along the way, so try to save some space in your suit case.

    I’ve gone wireless on my wing, Sena 20s and the Freewire is the way to go. The Freewire will allow you to hear all function, radio, CB, navigation ect. through the bluetooth.

    With the CB you are allowed to communicate through the bluetooth Sena 20s.
