How long was it and where did you go? Did you stay in motels or camp in the car? Sight seeing at tourist spots or did you go off the beaten path?
and what did you bring with you that you think is important to bring on road trips?

Yes, I drove across the US basically by myself. The whole trip took about 3 weeks. I drove from Minnesota to Chicago for a bit, then to Myrtle Beach for a two day stay with friends. Then went down to Florida to see some more friends. Then drove to Texas and stayed a week, looking around and trying to catch up with old friends. Then drove back up north. I stayed in hotels the whole time except the Myrtle Beach two day stay.
I took my time, took a lot of pictures and videos on my phone. I went to some new places as well as revisit some old. I had my suitcase of clothes for like 8 days, and found a laundry mat to wash them like on the 7th day to keep up. I had plenty of water, car snack friendly foods (like trail mix), first aid kit in the back, flashlight, spare tire, and a blanket just in case. I also like to bring my own pillow, and since I knew I was going to the beach, I brought my beach bag with a towel and stuff. A towel and sun screen might not be a bad idea to have in the car, either. For me, I also brought a great playlist, so I can play it with the windows down and enjoy the scenic routes (or to help pass time when driving on the interstate). Bring all the necessary charges, car and USB for the hotel if you are staying, or bring a rechargeable battery you can recharge in your car plug.1
