I'm leaving in just over a month to spend the summer working at Missouri National River.  Since my time to get a new car is approaching, I've started shopping for one with the intent in buying before we leave.  I'm probably going smaller, and with that I've started wondering... what do I bring?

I will be in a dorm room for the summer, but it has a shared kitchen and fridge on the floor.  I've certainly traveled without access to a kitchen, but I think I will have more me time on this adventure and in the last year I've really taken to cooking.  It also doesn't help that I've developed a mostly plant based diet which means less options out and about.  Hopefully I'll be able to enjoy more local fruits and veggies.  Last year in the Philippines I didn't take advantage of all the fresh fruit sold on the side of the road, though we did enjoy some with breakfast every morning.

I will be driving from Florida to Illinois for a wedding, and then to visit family and off the South Dakota.  This means Jose needs a seat and a place to put his bag too!  Fortunately he is a pretty simple packer.  He will fly back to FL from IL.
