This foreword introduces the book Road Tripping through a personal reflection into the material cultures of automobility and the role that they play in our lives. The book presents the results of research into a range of objects associated with road trips, from parts to the car itself, to parts of the roadscape, and to the objects we might take with us. The common theme that unites them all is that they are all immediately identifiable as being associated with long car journeys.
