We've got snacks, drinks, trashy reading material and 4 girls in a car ready for a 13 hour drive. New York City here we come!
Road Trip Tip #1:
Sharing gas costs can be annoying and difficult to keep track of. This is how we've solved that problem. We always ask the vehicle owner to come with a full tank of gas. Everyone puts an equal amount of cash in a designated spot, the glove box for instance, (the amount depends on the distance of the trip) and that becomes the gas fund. At the end of the trip make sure to leave the vehicle owner with a full tank and then split the left over cash equally amongst everybody. This method has saved us a ton of mathematical headaches.
