Another thing worth preparing for is rain in the middle of the night. Not a huge problem for the bike itself, but if you have a leather saddle and it gets soaked, it can be a bit of a problem. I’ve seen some people even remove the saddle and seat post and bring it in their tent for the night. I’ve seen other riders use those disposable plastic shower caps from the drug store (or free from a recent hotel stay). The elastic keeps it in place through the night, and you will have a nice dry saddle in the morning. Bar tape can get soggy too, but it’s not as big of an issue as a soaked Brooks.
