Pack snacks that you have on hand at home. You can bring popcorn, trail mix, chips, crackers, etc. These snacks are tasty and can travel well.

And when it comes to hydrating, nothing is better than good ol’ H20. Other drinks can be packed with sodium and other artificial sweeteners.
  3. Pack a first aid kit- You never know what can happen during a road trip. Having a first aid kit is beneficial. If something happens, you do not have to stop to treat the injury.
  4. Switch drivers often- When you are feeling tired, change drivers or rest for the night. It’s better to delay your arrival than risk getting into an accident.
