Tired? Of course you are — or at least you definitely will be soon. Keep caffeine on hand.

2. A Hammer

NBC / Via

Because things WILL need hammering.

3. Gaffer Tape

TBS / Via

"COME AT ME, LIFE." Whether or not you're a roadie, gaffer tape can get you out of all kinds of sticky situations. Invest now.

4. A Neck Pillow

Because you WILL fall asleep on the plane...and sans pillow, you'll end up with a stiff neck for the duration of your dream vacation.

5. Extra Phone Storage...

Comedy Central / Via

Because you have a lot of adventures to document and a lot of selfies to take along the way.

6. ...and a Phone Locator App

Please, please download this BEFORE you lose your phone. How else will you find it and continue your life?

7. Baby Wipes

ABC Studios / Via

Life will eventually lead to ribs, and you should be ready.

8. An Umbrella

Pixar / Via

Getting wet means getting sick. Stay dry.

9. Cold Medicine

NBC / Via

Because you shouldn't be out in the world purchasing things when you are currently a human germ factory. Do future-you a favor!

10. And a First Aid Kit

Dust yourself off and get back out there!
