Andy, I think prior planning can help the first two too.  Training can give
you a very good idea how to manage water (and planning for full moon so as
to night hike the desert is a great idea).  And training over similar
terrain in the same shoes and socks for the same distances per day during
the week before the week before you leave will let you work thru blisters
while you have lots of time and other resources and hit the trail in
prepared shape.
