I love road trips – hitting the open road, top down, blasting the tunes with nothing but adventure ahead of me. Yeah, I’m sure it’s the California girl in me, but long drives and I are a match made in heaven.
When I was in my late teens, early twenties, I took lots of road trips – whether it was to NYC (from my college in upstate NY) for a weekend of fun, a trip to DC to watch the fireworks, or a trip to Seattle just to see the Sound, I am no stranger to the open road.
Of course, once I married 20-something years ago, my solo trips became duo trips. And when I had my firstborn 14 years ago, kids were also part of the fun.
I’ll admit it, as much as I LOVE taking trips with my family, there is something fabulous about going alone.
So, for the first time in nearly twenty years, I am on the road sans family. WOO HOO!
Now, road trips are NOT complete without a few supplies.
Like Pandora for the tunes.
Great audio-books for those times when tunes aren’t cutting it.
A cooler full of Diet Pepsi (or water, when I am being healthy)
What are you “essentials” for road trips??
