When a bunch of kids get in a car (most likely a VW Bus, most likely with tons of drugs, and drive to an exotic destination (like Vegas or New Jersey).
It happened more in the 70s.

The long and boring trip that eventually becomes memorable and fun through time.
Mike: Road trip!
John: Dude those are so long and your car smells like shit.
Mike: Yeah but in ten years it will be the happiest moments of your life.
When a couple of people pile in a car and drive around on country roads drinking beer. This usually is done on the way to a party or waiting for a party to start. This is most enjoyable when women are involved. Another good idea is to make a power hour mix where a song plays for 60 seconds and a siren goes off signaling everyone in the car to take a drink/shot. A full tank of gas and a couple different power hours can make for one long night you may never remember.
Bob: Hey is there anything going on tonight?
Steve: Nope, not shit, wanna call up some women and road trip
? I'll pay for the gas if you buy the beer.
A road trip is a journey via automobile, sometimes unplanned or improvised.

Much like a power trip, a "Road Trip" is when a driver feels like he/she owns the road and feels as if they are a better driver than the other drivers around them.
That asshole just cut across a 4 lane highway and cut me off, he's definitely on a road trip....
