OK so I just got back in contact with my best friend from hoghschool /bass player in my old band and on top of that discovered that I have 40 days of leave currently saved up so figured its time to start planning a road trip.
Our rout that we are looking at starts in Dallas and heads to big bend national park to do some hiking and then up to Roswell and check out any cool alien stuff there cause we are into that stuff. Then we are going to head over to Phoenix and then up to flagstaff. We will probably stop in between Phoenix and flag to do some shooting and other fun stuff at my buddies ranch. We will do a lot of hiking and what not in flagstaff. Then we plan to head up and check out Vegas and the grand canyon.
I am trying to make a list of essential things both for the taco and kit that will be needed.
1: water, jerry cans or perhaps a bladder,
2: food, (money for food but I'll probably bring some MRE's and mountain house meals)
3: clothing and protective gear. Also hygiene stuff
4:sleep gear and shelter. ( sleep bag, tent or hammock)
5:first aid kit
6: tool/ emergency kit.( still need to figure out what to put in these)
7: extra fuel (fuel cans)
8: dog food and dog essentials.
9: maps nav gear and GPS.
10: flashlight with extra batteries
11: storage equipment.
I'm sure there is a lot I'm missing. This is my first real road trip so if anyone has other suggestions I will be greatful to hear them. Also if anyone knows of some cool places to hike, wheel, explore, eat we would definitely check them out! Thank you for your time!
