I am a BIG fan of making lists. I find it’s the only way to quiet my brain! Throughout my day I jot things down on different lists- I have 11 (yes 11) different lists going right now. They vary from “work things” to “house things” to “songs I like” to “365 til 30 book ideas” to “life goals” to “things to buy at cvs”- can you tell I also like to compartmentalize? Below is my newest list entitled “Road Trip Essentials”. I feel like it’s pretty thorough but I am sure I am forgetting something! My dad probably just jotted down mace and a gun- kidding Dad!!! Seriously though, does anybody have any brilliant ideas to add to the list?

      HA! I would run the car off the road if I had to listen to that for 14 hours straight! 🙂

    It’s a beautiful thing to be efficient, organized and diligent. Thanks Kate

    Love that a corkscew is on your list! Having just done a road trip from Minnesota to Texas, the most important things I learned were to stay caffeinated at all times and, because of that, take lots of bathroom breaks! 🙂 No matter what, just have fun and enjoy the ride!

    Maybe a bottle of travel wash for clothes? If you intend not to take many you could wash them out every couple of days?

        thought of something else! Carrier bags in the car for rubbish – sweet wrappers, banana skins…….

    Bathrooms that are reliably pretty clean? Subway. Homemade trail mix, and what about a real camera?

    A small set of binoculars. And an unbreakable sense of humor.

    Double digits! Has it really been that long since I have been on your site??? Sorry, Hunger Games trilogy took over my life for a while….

    All that to say, SO GREAT to get caught up here. Highlight for me is the pic of Brian in the empty showroom w/his art – I got choked up and I’ve never even met the guy!

    Can’t wait for your road trip. You are a star!

    Hahaha my photographer in crime, Valerie is also a big fan of lists. I’ve learned that lists are essential to road trips. As much as I tease her, without her extensive lists we would be much more chaotic than we already are!
