    What are your must have items if you go on a road trip. I'm going to tennessee this spring break with 15 buddies of mine. We are going in a 3 car convoy ( yes it will be a tight fit but saves gas) with my taco being the lead car ( I have the gps, cb, radar). What else should I bring for my long drive? what are your favorite items to have on long road trips? I know i will bring at least 2 bags of beef jerky, and a bag of doritos.. cool ranch!:D

    First road trip I ever pulled in my Taco, went to Ocala to work for a freinds construction clean up crew on a Saturday. Spent that Friday after going to school out with a couple friends, got home @ 2 am, showered, went to the gas station @ 3am and bought 3 cans of monster, was on the road at around 3:30am, showed up and worked from 9am to about 6pm, then drove to Daytona, then drove back from Daytona @ 3am. Finally got to sleep that Sunday for about 5 hours before driving back to Jacksonville.... It was during Spring Break so Daytona was insane! That was a hell of a weekend.

    My suggestion, energy drinks, and lots of music. if you're in a convoy, CB's or walkie talkies.
