5 Things… to bring on your next roadtrip

Posted in 5 Things... by Julie Meyers Pron on August 3, 2009

  1. Laundry Basket: Forget the super fancy luggage. If you’re staying with a washing machine, pile the kids’ clothes into a basket and yours into another. Light weight, easy to carry, they fit everything and pack and unpack without troubles. Plus, it’s easy to find things if you need them mid-trip. Get to your destination, move the clothes into drawers and you’re set to start your visit.
  2. An extra headlight: because you never know when you’ll end up with a “pidoodle”. And a “pidoodle” can lead to a ticket. Or an enormous hassle if you drove to a vacation spot without  Walmart or a car dealership.
  3. Wipes:
    1. Baby wipes: for cleaning hands, spills, mouths… but really for cleaning hands. Every single time you get out for a bathroom break
    2. Armorall Car Wipes:  if you’re travelling with kids, spillage is inevitable. And no one wants to clean up spilled milk 5 days later, let alone drive the car home with old spilled milk.
  4. Cash: So used to plastic that you rarely carry cash? Sure, until you hear the story of the vacationing family who’s credit card number was stolen and had the credit card frozen in the middle of vacation. Being declined while charging diapers at the grocery is not a good thing.
  5. A good ol’ paper map: Between GPS and cell phones we rarely use maps, who would think to bring one? But should connection be lost or a curiousity followed, getting lost can make you a long way from home.
