Road trips are so much fun you get to bond with people in a differnt way but to make sure that the fun keeps on rolling there are many things that you should make sure that you bring with you.

The most important thing that you should ake sure that you bring with you on your road trip is food. Have all the coolers packed with food for you do not have to stop and get anything on the road. It is a lot cheaper and healthier to eat from a cooler then it is from the drive through not to mention a lot faster. Everyone in the car will be happy that there is enough food to go around when the engine starts to head off. If you do run out of food go to a grocery store to restock the essential supply of snack food.

The number one thing you should make sure you have before you take off is a spare tire and tools to fix the flat tire. It is no fun to be stuck in the middle of no where with no cell phone service. Road trip travel hopes that you do not get a flat on your journey but things happen and we want you to be prepared for you are not stranded and feel like you are in a scary movie.

When you are on a road trip the driver is normally always busy with driving but sometimes it gets a little boring for the passengers so make sure that you bring enough games for everyone can stay focused and not get bored.  If it is hand held games to cards everyone will have more fun while on the road if everyone will be awake to see it.

Probably the most common sense thing to bring with you on a road trip is a GPS or a map. There is no reason to get that lost these days there is so much technology to help you know where you are which makes it easy to drive across country. So please do not get lost in the twenty first century.

More on the safety side make sure that you bring a safety kit. This thing usally has everything that you will need if you get stuck there will be flashlights, blankets, orange reflector, some tools, jumper cables, these things make you feel safer while driving cross country. One other thing I would add to the safety kit would be a sleeping bag just in case you go to a city where no hotels are vacant forcing you to sleep in your car.

Everything else that you bring on your trip is optional but we hope that these few tips will help you along your road trip where ever you might be going.
