5 Road Trip Essentials

| Words by Bryson Smith | Photos by Nick Walden

The road trip is a time honored tradition: load up the car, hit the road and explore. The promise of freedom on the open road has captured our imaginations for generations, inspiring the work of many musicians, artists, writers and filmmakers. At Nomad, we pull plenty of inspiration from our own road trips. From cruising the California Coast to cycling from Cairo to Cape Town, we are fans of road trips big and small.

However, sometimes in our excitement to get on the road, we forget stuff we know we are going to want. While there always seems to be an endless list of stuff we forget to pack, we have created an essential list of items that come with us on any road trip, no matter where we are headed. Check out the video below to see the 5 items we always bring!
