When you think about going on a trip what are the most important things you need to remember? A toothbrush, extra underwear, another pair of socks? There are millions of important things that are needed for a road trip or any trip and honestly, they are important but they do not break your trip if you do not have them. But the following items will make and break your trip, especially if they're not perfect.
Music is key to any road trip. You need a dope playlist that is going to make you laugh super hard while you sing super loud while you drive to your ideal destination. Singing super loud is going to make you feel really good even when you know you suck and when you add the old jams and the newest hits you can't go wrong.
FOOOOOOOOD!!!! First off who doesn't love a good snack, especially when it is your favorite snacks, cookies, candy, chips whatever makes your heart sing? If you are going to be driving in the car for a long period of time you're going to need all the dank snacks. When going to the gas station to get road trip snacks it should always look like a nine-year-old went in with $100 and was set free.

They are your co-pilot who prevents you from getting lost and just make the destination a blast and a half.

5. Fun "Rest" StopsGiphy
One super important thing to remember is that you cannot and should not drive forever. Make pit stops, keep those pit stops and make them super fun.

This will keep you awake and fully restored for the rest of the trip.
6. Pillows & BlanketsGiphy
