Road Trip Essentials

Top Five Road Trip Essentials


1. Entertainment – We could not have driven across the country without music, podcasts, coloring books, and Kindles. I would have gone absolutely bonkers. We have an amazing car charger that can charge four electronics. It’s kind of the best thing ever. We were always quick the Kindles once the kids started to fidget. It bought us many extra hours on the road. Never discount the power of distraction.

2. Atlas– Call us old fashioned, but there is nothing like a good Rand McNally road atlas. We used this to plan.

Food– As the head car chef, I can tell you that snacks are crucial. Being hangry in a car with eight other people is no bueno. While we did a lot of snacks type food, we also made sandwiches and ate tons of fruits and carrot sticks. Just be sure to have a place for garbage.

Pillows– There is nothing worse than napping with your neck in a weird position. I highly recommend a good travel pillow.

GoPro– We have driven through some of the most breathtaking scenery on the planet. Capture it. We mounted a GoPro to the dash, and record as much as we possibly can.
