Default Road Trip Checklist

Wondering what some of you guys check over before a road trip or extra stuff when you hit the road for along trip. So far the only things I can think of is of course ordering a spare, oil change, belt change (need new one anyways), check fluids(brake, coolant, power steering ect), Ill be taking my tool box just in case also. Any extra tips?

I always check my tire pressure before a long trip. Also clean all my windows/mirrors.

I drove cross-country in April and didn't take a spare... lol. I took the truck to the dealership the week before and had the oil changed and told them to look it over head to toe. I made sure I had a tarp, warm clothes, and tie downs at my disposal. I always keep a tow strap in the truck as well.
