Snowbird Road Trip Essentials Checklist
Snowbird Checklist: Road Trip Essentials
Organize for a Successful Snowbird Road Trip
Now that Thanksgiving, the Christmas crush and December holidays are winding down, many snowbirds are prepping to depart for their warm weather homes. Staging and packing consumes a lot of time and packing checklists help prevent overlooking travel essentials. Bring the basics and think of each of your five senses when prepping for your road trip as well as everything you'll want to have when spending 6 - 8 or more hours per day in your vehicle.
Travel-sized products are a good investment wherever possible. Often just a small spritz of fragrance, a couple of eye drops and a breath mint can be the refreshing pick-me-up for road-weary travelers.
Our southern destination includes planned rural travel through small towns and remote areas that may or may not have cell service, which is why an atlas is a smart item to tuck into a seat pocket. Other times, we've diverted off the interstate due to major traffic accidents, detours and to avoid long traffic delays, which means a super charger for our phones is absolutely necessary.
Whether in transit before or after the holidays, Snowbird Road Trip Essentials Checklist is a follow-up to How to Pack Your Vehicle. It's an easy road trip checklist by category for the items many snowbirds bring to their southern destination when travelling by SUV or car. Safe travels!
