What To Take On Your Road Trip In The USA

Hi all,

Road trips are extremely popular at the moment  and the USA has some veryroad-trip icon routes to follow, with Route 66 probably being the most famous.

Following on from our recent blog – How to plan a car hire usa road trip I have today put together a list of what to take with you on a road trip.

What to take with you on a road trip

  • Maps - Sat Nav’s are great, but always have a map just in case.
  • Blankets - Even though your first thought of the USA is warm sunshine parts of it, especially at night can be very cold.
  • Warm Clothing - Same as above really.
  • A Torch – self explanatory really, helpful to also pack some spare batteries.
  • First Aid Kit – Like a good boy scout, be prepared!
  • Drinking Water – Recommend amount in a desert is one gallon per day.
  • Mobile Phone - If you’re like me it permanently stuck to you anyway however communication can be key.
  • In Car Charger – As above
  • Oil, Anti Freeze and Petrol – Although the hire cars are serviced and checked regularly, its always a good idea to pack these in case of emergency.
  • Music
  • Cat Litter - Yeah I know, why would you take a cat on a road trip? however its not for the cat its for traction. If you get stuck in mud sprinkle some cat litter round your tire for traction. It also can be used to soak up oil etc
  • A Jack – Blow outs can happen.
  • Tyre Iron – As above
  • Jump Leads
  • Swiss Army Knife

Have I missed anything out?

Tell me about your road trip experiences.

regards,

James
