With the crisp fall air replacing the humidity of summer, there's no better time to hit the road than a good old fashioned road trip. Whether you've carefully mapped out your trip with pit stops and a final destination or are just going to get in the car and drive, you'll definitely need to make sure your car is stocked.
1. Snacks for days (literally)
A person can only eat so many fast food cheeseburgers before they start going a little crazy. Pack a variety of healthy snacks to save money and stay full on the road.
2. A car mount
Stay safe while following your GPS with a car mount. Not only will it keep you from reaching for your phone to text, but it will be easier to see where your next turn is. Magnetic mounts are easiest to use and hold your phone in place.
3. Emergency kit
The DMV recommends keeping a first aid kit, fire extinguisher, jumper cables, non-perishable snacks and bottle water in your trunk in case of emergency. It is better to be safe than sorry!
What good is a road trip with no backup singers? Load up the car with your best buds and a great playlist and hit the dusty trail!
5. Fully loaded electronics
You'll be on the road for long stretches of time, so it's a good idea to do some prep work ahead of time. Create playlists, download ebooks (when you're the passenger, of course), and make a queue of podcasts to help pass the time.
With these essentials you're ready to follow the road, wherever it may lead!

Sorry, we don’t mean to make this sound like a nightmare, but it kind of is! It’s so frustrating when you can’t find what you’re looking for and you have nothing but your faint memory to guide you back to your long-lost devices.. Well, what if I were to tell you we found a few solutions to never letting this happen again? Yep, you’re going to want to continue reading.
Okay, but seriously. We all tend (or at least try) to get serious about our fitness around this time of year. It’s the second-most-famous time of the year to start caring about your physic, you know- New Years Day being number one, when we all created those unrealistic New Year's resolutions that last like the first two weeks of January...(well, if that). Ouch, did that hurt?
