Summertime Road Trip Checklist
9 Items to Bring for a Hassle-Free Adventure
With the changing landscape of travel as we move toward the end of the pandemic, many of us have turned to road trips as a means to bond and unwind.
A survey by Outdoorsy shows that 92% of Americans plan to take road trips this year either with friends or family members. Of this number, 22% say they will hit the road using RVs for the first time. Many see their planned road trip as a means to take a break from work while some say they will take their work with them, an option made possible by remote work setups.
If you’re one of those who plan to take your adventure on the road this summer, you may want to prepare a checklist so you don’t miss anything. Here are some of the things you may want to include.
You may have a GPS tracking device on your car, but you still need a map of the location you are traveling to just in case you need to take a detour or want to go exploring. Maps don’t take up much space, so including them in your RV or car compartment won’t be too much of a hassle.
2. Travel apps
Download travel apps to keep yourself updated on recent developments in the area where you’re going. Travel apps can also suggest additional locations where you can make stopovers to make the most out of your trip. They can also give you weather updates to help you prepare for the trip.
Depending on the time you expect to be on the road, make sure you bring enough food supplies for your entire gang. Aside from regular packed meals, also bring snack items. Be mindful that travelers on the road for a long time tend to get hungry more often than others. You never know how long it will take you to get to the next fast food restaurant.
4. Toiletries and cleaning supplies
Even as we move toward the end of the pandemic, you should still bring along toiletries such as tissue paper, paper towels, cleaning wipes, hand sanitizer, and soap for hygiene and cleaning purposes.
5. First aid kit
You can never tell what can happen on the road, so you need to prepare for minor emergencies. Include in your first aid kit essential medicines for common ailments.
6. Clothing, pillows, and blankets
When you’re on the road, you’d want to get as comfy as possible, so make sure to pack your favorite pillows, blankets, and comfy clothes for summer.
While most phones come with high-tech cameras already, you may want to unleash your inner shutterbug and bring your DSLR or Polaroid along for the ride. You can never have too many pictures on a road trip after all.
8. Electricity power inverter
This device helps you use your car battery power to charge devices like phones and laptops on the road.
9. Auto preparedness kit
Don’t forget to bring all the essential tools and safety devices in case you experience car trouble while on the road. You should have the tools for changing tires, flashlights, warning signs, and other safety items.
