Does packing for trips stress you out? It stresses me out! I’m always worried I’m going to forget something.
I’m packing my bag for my tour with I The Mighty. I’ve decided to make a list of all the things I brought, and I’ll update you if I forgot anything I really needed! Based on advice from other bands and basic knowledge from the previous trip, these are the must-have items when going on a 7 state, 14-day road trip.
Toiletries (Sunscreen, Chapstick, Deodorant, Shampoo, Conditioner, Lotion, Gum, Ear Cleaner, Shaving Needs, Hair Product, Flat Iron, Toothpaste, Toothbrush, Glue Stick… for the mustache!)
Ties (In order to look classy!)
Warm Clothes (Winter Tour… the van is cold!)
Work Out Gear (Sitting in a van 12 hours is rough!)
Books (You’ll need alone time.)
Cooler (You’ll want food other than granola.)
Power Cords (You should have a car converter too!)
Gift (Stayed with my parents)
Promotional Material (You gotta network!)
Business Cards (You better have these!!!)
Big Bag, Small Bag (You don’t wanna take your big bag in ever venue!)
Fresh Food (Fast Food Sucks!) Granola, Nuts, Fruit, Cereal
Towel, Pillow, Sleeping Bag, Baby Wipes, Ear Plugs, Vitamins, Hand Sanitizer, Plastic Bags, and Water.
