So, a while ago, we asked people about their crazy road trip adventures and their answers convinced us there’s certainly no shortage of ‘wanderlusters’ in our country. We’re sure that among us walk those who are in the middle of making the transition from tourists to travelers. Those that are on the verge of realizing more financial independence and more personal independence.
If you’re one of them, you may be closer to being a road trip junkie than you think. And in order to help the adventure junkie inside you come out even faster, we figured it’ll make sense to list a few things to keep in your car that can help you be road-trip-ready. Always.
1) Spare tyre
Because what are you gonna do when you bust a tyre and there’s no mechanic in sight for a mile in any direction?
2) Extra jacket
Because the road can sometimes take you to places where the weather is as unpredictable as it gets. Also because who wants to catch the chills when on a fun road trip?
3) Notebook and pen
Because the notes app in your phone will be good for nothing if your battery dies and you need to note down directions, numbers or names.
4) Travel mug
So, if you find a rest stop, and know that you may not find another one for a while, you have something to carry tea or coffee in.
5) Packed nuts
Packed nuts have a great shelf life, take up next to no space and in case there’s no food around, can revitalize you quickly.
Because the torch in your phone is not the best option when you’re in the mood to raid a forest or a campsite after dusk.
7) Hygiene bag
Because while nature provides a lot, it does not provide creature comforts like toilet paper and toothpaste.
8) First aid kit
Perhaps, something you should always keep in your car anyway!
9) Duct tape
This ingenious invention can come in handy in many ways including – protecting your feet against blisters, doubling up as a clothes line, fixing holes in tents and taping snacks to your jeans when you run out of pockets.
10) Board games
So you have something to do for a little R&R after a long day during your getaway.
11) Basic cutlery
What’s the harm in carrying a plate and a spoon with you when they take up almost no space and might come in handy at any point in time while you’re on the road or at a campsite?
Could there be a better time to read your favourite book than when you’re away from civilization and in the warm embrace of nature?
But above all, you need a ride that evokes a passion to live life #OnTheGO. Now that’s the kind of feeling one gets when they drive the Datsun GO or GO + Anniversary edition. The car is powerful, economical and spacious enough to help you make the most of all the crazy adventures that the road has to offer. Click here to learn more about it!
