You're going on a three hour road trip.. what do you bring?
I'm wondering if anyone is as weird as me and brings just themselves and their purse/wallet. Shoot.. unless I'm going to be gone somewhere overnight I don't take anythnig except my purse and cell phone.. depending on where I go I might take my camera too.
Apparently I don't know how to go on a road trip right... either that or I need to find different traveling companions. Picture this.. you're in a van full of people (three adults, two kids ages 10 and 11) and the following has been packed for a three hour road trip:
4 1 liter bottles of soda (woo-hoo! Lets get everyone hopped up on sugar and caffiene)
10 bottles of water (thirsty much?!)
2 boxes of fruit snacks (in case someone doesn't like one box they can open the other?)
2 cans of pringles (cause once you pop.. you can't stop?!)
2 boxes of crackers (err.. yeah)
2 coloring pads
2 boxes of crayons/pencils/pens
5 discs for laptop
2 portable cd players with headphones
3 digital cameras
1 bag of "just in case" stuff like bandaids, hand sanitizer, etc.
4 hats (I'm to sexy for a hat.. to sexy for a hat)
2 bottles of sunscreen (cause you never know if you want spf 100000 or spf 99,999)
1 portable dvd player
an assortment of books
and a partridge in a pear tree.
For three hours? Dang.. I remember when I was 7 and the family took a road trip from San Diego, CA to Chicago, IL and we only took suitcases with clothes and maybe a couple of books.
