Those easily forgettable items that you often overlook when packing can end up causing some sort of mini-crisis on your road trip. In order to avoid these slight catostrohpeses I have come up with a list of things people often forget, and by people, I mean me. But maybe you can relate. If you think of other essentials not on the list please feel free to comment!
