6 things you’ll need to pack for your Thanksgiving travels

November 18th, 2011 No Comments

I’m not sure if I’m the only one who still goes to my grandparent’s house for Thanksgiving, but most people seem to go somewhere.  Here are are some of the things I absolutely do not forget when I make the trek 3 hours south to Small Town, Texas that you might not consider taking with you.

  1. Shampoo and Conditioner: Most people stock their guest bathrooms so we don’t pack these two cleansers.  I say take them because you never know what will be in there. Check out 3Floz.com for your brand in a small
  2. Wireless Hotspot: Wifi is either really good or really bad in most people’s houses.  At my grandparents’ house in Woodsboro, they don’t have it at all.  I like the Verizon 4G LTE MiFi as an option if it doesn’t come on your phone.
  3. Nighttime tank and wrap:  around this time people still have trouble finding the right indoor temperature.  Be prepared for both.
  4. A bottle of wine:  Again, you never know what will be on tap, and if the family gets rowdy, you’ll need something to help you unwind.  (Hmm…maybe you should take bourbon instead….)
  5. Justin’s almond butter in chocolate or maple:  Get one plate of dessert and be  done with it.  Instead of hitting round 2 later that evening, bust open of these to satisfy lingering cravings for more pecan pie.  Plus, they’re filling!
  6. Running shoes:  Access to a gym could be limited and I know you don’t want to let yourself go completely. Enjoy a nice jog around the neighborhood.  Maybe you’ll throw in some push ups and crunches :)
