Summer is the perfect time to hit the open road and explore all that this great country has to offer. But before you set out on your adventure, there are a few things you’ll need to make sure you have packed. Here is a road trip essentials checklist to help you make sure you have everything you need:
Snacks and Drinks
Keep your energy up with some healthy snacks and refreshing drinks. Don’t forget your cooler too! This can minimize your stops and save you some extra cash. This can also be a lifesaver in the case of an emergency, like getting a flat time and having to wait hours for roadside assistance.
Know where you’re going with a detailed map of your route. Make sure to mark any stops you want to make along the way. Maps are especially useful when you reach dead zones in some rural areas. We know maps are old-fashioned, but they’re reliable and easy to use.
First Aid Kit
Be prepared for any type of injury with a first aid kit. They are especially handy on road trips, but we actually recommend keeping a first aid kit on your regardless of a road trip or short commute.
Pack clothes and shoes for all types of weather occasions you may face on your trip. If you’re expecting rain or snow, be sure to pack shoes with extra grip and a few extra jackets or ponchos. You do not want to be in a situation where you’re not prepared for the elements.
Lastly, a trip is not complete without a camera! You want to document your road trip with plenty of pictures to keep track of a great memory and share your moments with your loved ones.
