Have you ever left the house with that sinking feeling that you’ve forgotten something? For the life of you, you just can’t figure out what that thing is. Well, imagine you’re about to head out for a 2-week road trip and get that feeling. It happens.
When you’re trying to remember everything you might possibly want or need, something will inevitably fall through the cracks. If you’re in this boat right now, look through this list of the things most-forgotten on road trips. You may find just what you’re missing.
Most Forgotten Things When Traveling on the Road
1. First aid kit
2. Paper products
You’re probably going to be eating and getting messy while in the car. Don’t forget the napkins and tissues. Better yet, bring some wet wipes.
3. Plastic cutlery
Ever pack a salad without cutlery? It’s the worst. Don’t forget this important one. Just bring a box of mixed cutlery and leave it in the car for the trip. It’ll come in handy, for sure.
Prescriptions are not easily replaced, so don’t leave home without them. While you’re thinking about it, put a post-it on your dashboard to remind you about the prescriptions before you drive away.
5. Phone chargers
When you’re not driving, you’ll probably be listening to podcasts or scrolling through facebook. And when you are driving, you may use your phone for GPS navigation. These things will drain your battery, so don’t forget to bring your phone charger.
Now that we’ve covered what you may have forgotten to bring, let’s talk about something you may have forgotten to do. Did you remember to get an oil change? Pre-maintenance is so important before any road trip. All the band-aids in the world won’t help if you get stuck on the road.
