1 – Money. No brainer, right? For gas, snacks, drinks, any fun things you want.
2 – Sunglasses. A huge must for me.
3 – Mountain Dew. I have caffeine needs, okay? I like coffee just fine but I’d be stopping at every rest area and gas station along the way if I drank that much coffee.
4 – Google Maps. (or any map – app or physical) So I make it to my destination.
5 – Snacks. I go for the crunchy, salty goodness, every time.
6 – Music. I rely heavily on my Spotify app during road trips. Gotta have my playlists!
7 – A fully functional spare tire (and the knowledge to remove the flat and put the spare on LOL)
8 – Hand sanitizer. Because do NOT trust that a roadside rest area will have any, my friends.
9 – Car charger for phone. Because, well, Google Maps and Spotify won’t do me much good without the charger.
10 – Company. Not that I haven’t taken road trips on my own, but when I’m on my own, I’m usually talking to somone on the phone (hands-free of course!) I love my “me time” but on a road trip? Need some company and conversation.
