Gear for Roadtripping

Having just returned from a 4500-mile roadtrip, I’d like to recommend the following essential gear.

Thermos Nissan 14-oz. Leak-Proof Travel Mug

mugsWhat I love about this vacuum-sealed mug:

  1. Keeps coffee or tea hot for at least 6 hours
  2. Keeps ice water cold for at least 6 hours
  3. Doesn’t leak
  4. Has a great handle, and it fits in the car cup holders

It’s a little pricey, but worth it for sitting in the car for hours at a time. Available through Thermos and several online vendors in smoke, espresso, and stainless colors.

REI MultiTowel Lite X Large Towel

towelsWhat I love about this microfiber towel:

  1. Folds up into a tiny package
  2. Dries extremely quickly
  3. Has a clasp for hanging
  4. Is absorbent

At $26.50 it’s a little pricey, but worth it for traveling and camping. Available at REI in orange and green.

    Great recommendations! I am going to start lobbying for my personal Nissan Stainless mug.

    My essentials include foam earplugs for instant car slumber (only if you are the passenger) and a headlamp for hands free vision.
