Hi! I have been lurking for a couple of days now. I am amazed at the amount of information on these forums! Thanks for being here, I could use the help! I have read back through most all of the the posts through the past year. I think there were 24 or 25 pages just in this forum!
My family (2 boys, dh and I) are planning a short week trip to New England this year. We are from North Jersey. Next year (summer 2006) we are planning/dreaming about a month long trip to the Rocky Mountain States. My question to you experienced road trippers is between now and then what kind of good travel road trip type gifts can I purchase for my dh for Father's Day, Christmas, birthday etc? Are there things that you have found really indespensable (sp) or fun to have?
Things I have come across on back posts are:
cb radio (any special brand?)
good sun glasses
a car top carrier for the top of the van (any special type?)
flat tire fixer thing (how is that for good english...I just can't think of the name of it!)
a good emergency kit
a good first aide kit
a good camera (we are the buy the over the counter disposable type and I think maybe I should upgrade!!!!) I need a simple simple SIMPLE one to use!!!!
any other suggestions?
ps...if any of you are in the north jersey area...we went on a beautiful scenic ride today along the Delaware Water Gap on rt 615. Just beautiful and I am sure that in the fall it would be glorious!
