Can't Leave Home Without...

Singing Owl writes at the RGBP:

We will be at a chaplain's convention when you all are answering the Friday Five Questions. I'll look forward to reading your answers next week when I get home. At the moment we are trying to get the car loaded so we can hit the road, so this will be a simple F.F. This running around madly in order to leave has me wondering: what are the five things you simply must have when you are away from home? And why? Any history or goofy things, or stories?

1. Something to read. For years, like since I was a child, reading material has been an absolute must when travelling.

2. The laptop. A new addition, but we now make sure we choose hotels with internet access. And it makes it so much easier to keep the accounting program up to date when it travels with you. Mind you, I am thinking of making some trips without it next winter...

3. Lately, on long trips, Gravol. Eldest daughter seems to be prone to car-sickness and so the medicine is a need...

4. Music. In this part of the world there is a high chance that radio signals will not be with you for the whole trip. Unfortunately the girls want us to ALWAYS take the same CDs.

5. Cell Phone. Again a new addition. But the plan we have allows us to call anywhere in Canada with no Long Distance or roaming charges, which is far better than calling card calls or hotel charges. Besides, who actually remembers phone numbers without speed dial these days?
