As the end of the summer approaches, we are all jumping in the car for that one last trip, here is what you need to pack.

Summer is a great time for road trips especially in Michigan! According to rd.com here are the must have items for a road trip.

  1. Healthy Snacks - Things like carrots, grapes or a sandwich. You want to pack things that are not sticky and low in fat (since you are seating and not getting any exercise).
  2. Paper Products - You never know when the rest stop is out of toilet paper, or you need to clean up a spill in the car.
  3. Extra Set Of Keys - You don't want to get locked out when your spare set is miles away.
  4. Emergency Pack - Things you don't want to use, but it is good to have it all available. Band-aids, pain medication, anti-bacterial cream, a flashlight, and stomach medication.
  5. Pillow and Blankets - It's always nice to have the comforts from home with you.

Don't Forget...

  • If you have small children, travel games are great idea to help pass the time.
  • Bring along a Frisbee or jump rope, it's a great way to blow off some steam at a rest stop.
  • A car charger for your cell phone, you never know when you will need to make a call.
  • Extra bottles of water, because it's good for everything.

Travel safe!
