Friday Five: What You Absolutely, Positively Can't Leave Home Without

Singing Owl Writes: 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?

Yay! I love road trips!


(I know, I know. Presbygal and I have got to get in the habit of wearing our helmets!)

Anyway, here are my five 'gotta haves':
1. Cell phone -- for the 'being in touch' part and for the internet access.
2. A good book
3. A howling cat in a carrier. Wait a minute! How did that get in here?! Scratch that one.
4. A camera -- so you can post pictures and blog about your road trip later.
5. Tevas! -- because they are just so darn comfortable.

Mrs. M said...

HAHAHAHA!!! I once drove cross-country with a cat in a carrier (in a stuffed VW Cabriolet). NOT an experience I'd like to repeat.

It's not hair, it's chic helmets they're wearing. How about taking me along in your sidecAr?

Oh that is TOO funny! Yes love my Tevas, too. Great list, topped, however by the picture!

Fine picture! I once went on a trip with a howling cat NOT in a carrier. (I wasn't driving.) Goodbye, nice grey flannel skirt! Not recommended.

I love reading your stuff...makes me smile bunches!

Lady Midnight said...

Scratch that one? Scratch the CAT?!? Why, I oughtta scratch YOU one! Harrumph!

Besides, road trips are MUCH more fun when you let me out of my carrier and let me explore the car, your seat, your lap, under those funny uppy-downy things your feet are resting on, ...

Happy Friday,

The cat comment was too funny.

And I love the photo. But where are the biker babe outfits?

Presbyterian Gal said...

We do travel well in wind, don't we!

Yes the cat comment had me there a moment. But it's your turn to hold kitty on your lap when we ride!

Barbara B. said...

ruth, biker babe outfits? wow, not likely! :)

pg, I'm thinking processing counselor can hold the kitty in the sidecar.

David said...

I think Dad is the one that prefers having a howling cat along for the ride ;)

Great part is to let it loose just for the fun of the chase!

Barbara B. said...

LOL, I wouldn't advise letting a cat out to 'stretch his legs' in the middle of Wyoming.

David said...

Indeed. Might end up a wild kitty!
