That’s right folks! Summer is around the corner. You know what that means in The Constant Rambler household… Road Trips! It’s what we live for. Getting in the car with the windows down and the music blasting and hitting the road to find new adventures. There are a few things we do before packing up the car and heading out though. The dog needs a good bath, the car needs a thorough cleaning and our music lists need updating. Then comes my least favorite part of any road trip, the packing. Oh how I detest the packing, but it is necessary. Here is a short summer road trip shopping list that we put together to help your summer travels be safe and fun for all.
You know what they say, Safety First! With this handy gauge and inflation tool you can keep you and your family safe and on the road. Plus if you catch a flat, you can fill your tire up and drive to a repair shop instead of having to call for a service or even worse, unpack the whole car just to get to the spare!

Bugs! Ew! No one likes them and summer is bug season. Whether it be mosquitoes or fleas and ticks no one want to be bitten by those creepy crawly creatures that all swarm once the weather warms up. Keep yourself bite-free with some natural insect repellent.

There’s nothing fun or sexy about SunScreen but then again there’s nothing fun or sexy about sunburns or skin cancer either. Be assured that everyone on the beach will have the same amount of sexy sunscreen on if they are smart.

I don’t know about you, but the second the weather is warm enough to take my socks off and put my flip flops on is my favorite part of welcoming the season.

9. Stylish Hat
Wearing a hat is a great way to look stylish while also protecting yourself from those harmful sun rays. Keep yourself looking fly while keeping the sunshine off of your face.

Speaking of those bright sunshine rays, you should also protect your eyes as well. Sunglasses are a great way to protect your eyes and your skin (from the squint wrinkles) so that you can enjoy the warm weather without worry.
