There are few things I enjoy more than an adventure on the open road, and since the South is calling…it’s time to road trip with my beloved! 23 Smart Things to Pack for a Road Trip This Summer is a fun look at what you may want to throw into your bag or the trunk. Are you the chill type who casually packs and thinks “I can always buy what I forget to bring?” Or are you an uber organized packer who covers all the bases and has an outfit to suit every weather possibility?
I’m a light packer and one of those “I can make do with whatever I bring” types who doesn’t overthink it or become perfectionistic. I hope this list helps us both!

Road Trip Drama
Have a favorite ‘road trip’ film? I enjoyed the characters and the imperfect love between them in LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE. There was a dramatic moment that happened on the road…(some strong language at the end)
and who could forget:
I used to go see live comedy downtown Chicago in the ’80s where Bonnie Hunt (actress in clip above) got her start – she was brilliant, sassy, and hilarious!
Peace to you right where you are.
