There is something uniquely human about a passion for road trips. The need to roam truly seems to be built into our DNA. At GoSnug, we designed a Merino Wool blanket to take with you that's durable and sourced from premium materials. In many ways, it was designed for the road-trippers out there.
There is a rush that comes with hitting the open road, heading into the mountains and breaking free from all those things in our daily lives that tie us down. Driving away from our routines, we connect with our nomadic beginnings and take hold of a feeling of freedom. Whenever the world feels crazy, the road brings sanity.
Luckily, many intrepid and industrious road trippers out there work hard to keep the wanderlust spirit alive and well. Here are 10 images and the blogs they came from that will trigger your imagination and spark the desire to hit the open road.

One of the best ways to fully capture the rejuvenating power of a road trip is by keeping it simple. Your wheels and your gear need to be dependable and ready to handle anything that the road has to offer. We think that the GoSnug blanket is a quintessential part of perfect road trip planning.
