Road Trip Essentials

Tain the Tacoma in Wyoming, May 2019

Hey fam! We’re getting ready for our first North East USA road trip. We’ll be heading from Florida and making our way up to Maine. Unfortunately it looks like we’ll have to skip Canada for now since their boarders are still closed. We usually camp the majority of the time on road trips and will occasionally stay in a hotel when it’s time for a shower or after a long drive though the night with minimal sleep. Here’s what our packing list looks like for trips like these…

  • Hiking boots
  • Hiking sandals
  • Sandals for around the campsite
  • 4 pair hiking socks
  • 5 pair underwear
  • 2 sports bras
  • 5 multipurpose shirts for hiking or hanging out (tank top, short sleeve, and long sleeve)
