Road travel. Some people love it; some people would rather be anywhere else other than in a moving vehicle. Regardless of what side you’re on, this is a short list of some of the things to carry with you while traveling from point A to point B.
Road Travel – Things to Carry With You
A cell phone is great to have on a road trip, both for getting in touch with people and keeping everyone in the car entertained. However, it won’t be of any use at all when you allow the battery to die. Bring along an extra charger (or two), just to be safe.
So there won’t be any surprises, make sure you’re able to plug them into the radio’s USB slot (available in newer vehicles) or a standard cigarette lighter adapter BEFORE leaving home.
If the car breaks down at night or you need to stop while it’s dark, a flashlight is essential. Without one, it’s typically impossible to accomplish even simple things like changing a tire or locating something of importance in the trunk.
Yes, many cell phones have a flashlight feature. But, in the event your phone is dead, you’ll have an even better replacement.
A first-aid kit is really something to keep in your car at all times, but most especially during long road trips. Whether it’s while you’re driving to or once you reach your destination, you’re never immune to unexpected injury.
Stain Remover Pen
Especially when you have children, eating meals in the car can lead to dropped food and stained clothing. A stain remover pen fits easily into your pocket or suitcase and quickly takes care of stains on the go. This way, you won’t need to go shopping for replacements when you return home.
These are just a few (of many) things to carry with you and keep handy during road trips. As the old adage goes… “it’s better to be safe, than sorry!”
