Taking a road trip with your best friends is surely an experience!
Snacks are always needed for a road trip. Everyone is always hungry when you are in the middle of nowhere and there is absolutely no sign of civilization so make sure to pack an array of snacks.
Same concept as snacks. You always need to make sure you stay hydrated during trips.
