We still use a map. Remember those??? I am the navigator when Hubby is driving. Hubby is navigator when I am driving. The map is our friend. I love getting lost and finding the way out. GPS is too easy. ;)

Don't forget your bed pillow. I don't travel anywhere without mine. No way no how, am I ever putting my head on a pillow full of slobber from someone else.

My OP wasn't intended to be a complete packing list. I'm not worried about it. I just wanted to highlight all the electronics and related gear we seem to carry as a matter of course.

When packing for vacation, don't forget to take along the "best of people". When Do we leave?

on most trips we just bring our smartphones instead of our laptops. We also use one for GPS navigation (Android has turn by turn navigation included using google maps).

We are packing lighter and lighter every time. We each have a toiletry bag and clothes and can often share a suitcase for a week's vacation (I hate paying for two bags when flying).

I pack all of my supplements in one bottle, and just take one of each pill daily instead of packing each bottle.

We were following BIL by car into a remote area of TN, and his Tom-Tom disagreed with our Nuvi. And no cellphone service. Wished we'd had a real map!

I already compared the directions on the iPad to those on the Tom Tom. They seem to agree.

I print out a Google map. The only digital items are the cameras. My Emergency only Tracphone.

Make sure I have our pills, etc, clothes, shoes. Anything we've forgotten we can pick up along the way.
