Cool list, these things tend to be in my car all the time, except for the GPS.

I recommend an audio book regardless of who is driving. They can work wonders in quieting the kids down.

This is almost identical to our travel list for the family trip to DC.

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

My list is very similar to yours with the addition of a roll of paper towel (handy for drink spills,rain issues, & more)and a mini first aid kit.

PS - don't forget the charger cord for the cell phone! Not that I've done that or anything.

Sunscreen for the drivers arm!
Ibuprofen and sudafed are necessary on all of our road trips and Gas X for fast food stops! And Definately sunglasses and binoculars if you are a passenger!! I love road trips!

I would also include chapstick on your list. My lips get so dry!
