    Here’s what I would bring: 1 ice chest- large- keep sodas, water and food in. 2) sodas, water and food for the road. You can cut costs by not having to eat in restaurants the whole time if you bring bread, lunchmeats, peanut butter, maybe some fresh fruit, candy or whatever you like to nibble
    on. 2) Clean clothes 3) a blanket (in case you need a nap and don’t want to pay for a hotel, or maybe you want a picnic along the way? 4) Flashlight 5) Maps 6) emegency water, coolant and oil for th car – just in case. 7) Cell Phone 8) Cell phone charger 9) Insurance card and phone number. 10) Number for emergency road service (I have AAA, but you may have something else. If you don’t have any such thing, enroll with AAA – it’s worth it the one time your car breaks down. Plus they’ll give you free maps! for your whole trip.)
    11) Spare tire and jack. 12) Sunglasses 13) Jacket 14) Swimsuit (you never know!) 15) Towel 16) First aid kit, including band aids, tylenol and any prescription medications you need. 16) Your doctor’s phone number 17) Peanuts- to feed the squirrels along the way. 18) Tent-if you are planning to camp out along the way (plus camp stove, fuel, etc)

    Yup, that’s what I’d bring if it were me. Have fun!
