Try to arrange a route where you are going west in the morning and east in the evening.
The last 150 miles or so felt rough, but up to then it was quite tolerable.
For tolls, put a bunch of change and small bills in a ziplock bag along with the toll ticket. At the toll booth, just hand the bag over to the toll collector instead of fumbling with money and tickets.
Compression shorts like bicyclists wear, instead of underwear.
Number your receipts to arrange them more easily later.
