Did anyone else play this game at summer camp?  You'd all sit around a campfire and have to say all the items that were said before you and then add one of your own before passing it to the next sugared-up, marshmallow fiend?  Except usually, you'd be going some place cool, like the moon or Jupiter. Well, it's for realz now, because we're driving across country in 4 days.  Wow, I just scared myself.  4 days!?  Are you kidding me?!? So help a brotha and sista out.  What can we absolutely not forget to take on a 3,969 mile drive??  We promise to recite them all before adding our own travel necessity and passing it on 'round the campfire. ***Song of the moment: Nonpareil of Favor, by Of Montreal***

A small pillow for behind the lower back of the driver. Seriously necessary toward the end of a long, long day of driving.

Sweet tunes and podcasts, thats a lot of time you’re going to be driving. Lots of clothes you can layer so you don’t have to take 5 million bags of coats. Pillows and blankets fer sure. And the jewels, don’t forget the jewels, otherwise whats the point! =) Have sooooo much fun, can’t wait to read all about it!
