A River Walks Through It

Road Trip Inventory


Where you're on a extended road trip, what you bring with you becomes your life. The inventory list is ever evolving, and the rearranging to create the most efficient system becomes less of a chore and more or a rewarding game. Below is the list of items that started us out on this adventure. As I write this I am already thinking of items to send home or donate to the closest salvation army. I actually can't believe how much fits into our tiny whip, and this list seems almost gluttonous. I look forward to living simply off of these items and updating the site with which things don't make the cut at the halfway mark.
