Pack Everything You Need

When you are going away it can be tricky knowing what you will need, this is especially true if there is no access to a washing machine. This is quite often the case when you go camping so you will need to ensure that everyone has enough clothes to last. Of course, you can reuse them even if they are a bit grubby, that is all part of the camping experience. 

If you have a lot of stuff that you want to take along with you then you might want to think about investing in a multi-purpose trailer type thing for you to tow along. Take a look at patriot campers they come in a variety of prices but offer you the best deal for your time away. 

Places To Stay

When you are travelling on the road you will need to find suitable places to set up and stay over for a night or two. Make sure that wherever you are stopping has toilets and washing facilities for you to clean yourself up. There will be specific sites dotted around the country, especially for camping trips. You may even meet other people who can share places to visit and stay. If you take a look at camping websites or forums online then you may be able to stumble across some lovely sites to stay on. Some even offer play equipment for the kids, this will keep them entertained in the evenings. 


Remember, that if you are travelling with children you will want to pack some things to keep them entertained. This includes while you are driving around and while at rest stops or overnight stays. You can make special travel packs for them and fill the goody bag with various activities for them to do. Make sure whatever you get is age and stage appropriate as well as being suitable to do while on the move. You can buy travel board games which are miniature versions of the normal ones. These include monopoly, Cluedo, and scrabble as a few examples. 

Day Trips 

Finally, you will want to make the most of your time together and visit some cool places to create even more memories. If you are travelling to a lot of places on your road trip then you could make it your mission to visit at least one place of interest at each stop along the way. You could even plan your journey based on where you will be visiting.
