A dilemma since the car was invented.

I simply have a small assortment of cleaning supplies in the cargo net in the trunk. Take a detailed and a micro and good to go. Same supplies I use for the car shows.

Short of not driving it at all (particularly at night) it bugs and driving just go hand in hand.

Bring it there in an enclosed trailer. That way when you get there you're ready to roll. It'll be spotless!

Make sure you have no loose pieces. They will flap like crazy and wear away the paint.

if you have a clear bra, put a fresh coat of polish on it and spray them off at the carwash. There's one right down the road from the host hotel.

Leaning to baby oil, if it's safe on a baby butt is safe on the car!
