Just in case you dump your Pan Gallactic Gargle Blaster in your lap.

I like the idea of having water. Last summer I got stuck in an unexpected traffic jam, took me 1.5 hours to get where I was going, which should have only taken 15-20 minutes.... and my car at the time had no AC and it was brutally hot sitting in a stopped car. I don't know if I would have wanted to drink steamy water lol but the option would have been nice!

That god-awful sound is called wind buffeting!? Omg. I thought it was Satan speaking to me. D:

I always keep slip leads in my car. I've picked up several strays using them. I have a bag of dog treats and an extra clicker in the center console. A cover for the backseat, or it will be destroyed by dog hair and pawprints. Dog seatbelts. Portable water bowl and a canteen of water (bottled water gets ruined in the sun). TOWELS! A frisbee and a chuckit with a ball.

For me, I make sure I always have at least one pair of sunglasses in the car, my CD case, my USB cord, all of my chargers, and trail mix.

Omg Golfs are soooo dope!!! I wanted one, but a Cube fit my needs way better.

My car always has a giant sketchpad, some art supplies, a collapsible wire crate, a plastic travel crate, one pair of heels, one pair of flip flops or tennis shoes, a clicker, two or three leashes, a towel to put down in the back seat, poop bags, water dish for the dogs, ... I feel like I'm missing something.

Poop bags!!! That's important

Oh for the people that leave trail mix in the car, how do you make sure it doesn't go bad? Considering if the car is parked in the sun it gets baking hot inside?

I opted for the Golf wagon, bigger hatch for dogs In the US it's called a Jetta Sportwagen. It's pretty huge. Actually I just took a quick peek at the specs for the Cube and the Golf wagon and the Golf wagon has more cargo space with with rear seats up and rear seats down I never would've thought!

Whaaaaaaat?! I totally hadn't considered a Jetta Sportwagen. I love hatchbacks... and VWs! I might make my boyfriend get one. But knowing him, he'll probably get a 2-seat Mercedes or something.

I keep snacks/trailmix in the glove compartment and it doesn't get melty or anything. I eat it within a few days, though, so it's not like it's sitting there for months. It keeps me from getting fast food or candy.

ugh. I HATE when I do that!


seriously though, I used my towel twice yesterday. first bc muffin jumped in a HUGE puddle, and second because I wanted to sit in the grass but it was wet... so I sat on the towel.

Know where your towel is.
