Nothing beats a perfect road trip when you slam the long roads prepared. And you know what ruins the one that must be a great experience? Forgotten stuffs. It will make your trip very uncomfortable, hassle and costly. I’m sure that you all wanted to look fresh on the selfies you are going to take on trip, that’s why you must not forget to bring the stuffs for freshening yourself up.
So, before you hit the road, be sure that you all have these things packed before you go. That’s why here is the list of the things you must bring and never forget on going on a road trip.
It is important that you have this on your stuff. Accidents always happen though extra care is being put in everywhere and at anytime of the day. Your kit must contain an extra pair of shoes, a bottle of water, a flashlight, an extra blanket and a pair of clothes. Of course, we don’t want to drive on a trip with a wet shoe or clothes in us.
Keep Extra Small Bills
Listing this ahead of time will save more time on travelling and time for exploring the place. Making a list of this will organize your trip and will maximize your experience on the trip.
Bring an Atlas
An Atlas may sound too old, but I tell you, it will definitely be a big relief when your GPS or phone ran out its battery. At least, having an atlas in your car will keep you safe and will keep you informed where are you or whether you are near on your goal.
Bring a Two-Port USB Charger
You are using your phone or tablet along the road for GPS, playing music and taking pictures and your gadget needs a source of battery. Be sure to bring at least a two port charger so your charger can charge 2 gadgets at a time.
Prepare Your Road Trip Friendly Music Playlist
Roads may be long and silent, so choose to break it with your playlist! Plug it up and ready to sing-along with your friends in the car while embracing the cold breeze of air along the road. A fresh air to catch as you laugh at each other’s voice and those who cracks a joke. A dose of happiness along the road while on a trip!
Wet Wipes/ Paper Products
You will be thanking these products when you needed them, most especially on a trip. Keep them safe and dry so you will be able to maximize its use when you need it. Perfect for restroom duties and drying kitchen utensils for future use.
One of the greatest and the most exciting to do on a road trip! Cooking! Making your dinner on the roadside with a bonfire, cooking along with friends is basically one of the most memorable happenings on a trip. Be sure to have this so you will have a clean and hot food to eat and a stable ware to use when cooking!
Tent, Pillows and Blanket
For a better relaxation from driving or from being seated for a couple of hours. Set-up your tent, prepare the pillows and voila! Take this time to rest and replenish your body from being on the road, take this time to gaze at the sky, watch falling stars, fill the time with stories to be shared!
First Aid Kit
A kit that must never be forgotten. Be sure to pack your first aid kit with materials that are needed for those little silly wounds or dizziness along the way. A preventive kit for taking the road on a long trip.

Bringing a rope on a trip? Yes! This rope will help you dry your clothes whenever you went on a swimming or when the rain kissed your bodies.
You will be a miles away from your home, so better bring your hygienic stuffs i.e; deodorants, shampoo, feminine wash, body soap, toothbrush and toothpaste with you. Bring them to keep yourself fresh and clean on the trip!
Cooler, Ice Box, Ice Chest or Chiller, whatever you call it. It is a must you bring them too! Pack it with ice and a couple of soda to keep it cold on the way. The cooler may also be used to store your meats to be grilled and your fresh fruits to be eaten along the way!
