The call of the open road lures millions of road-trippers each year. Once you’ve taken an amazing road trip, you’ll understand why so many people opt to drive to their destination than fly.
While flying may get you from point A to point B quickly, the downside is not seeing the captivating scenery of America’s landscapes.
Research routes, roadside attractions and hotels or campgrounds prior to your road trip. Determine your destination, how many miles to drive and how long you want to be in your car each day.
Make a list prior to your trip and check it off so you don’t forget anything.
Prior to your road trip check your vehicle’s oil, tire pressure, wiper blades, brakes, spare tire, air-conditioning and wiper, radiator and transmission fluids.
Pack a First-Aid Kit. Include bandages, gauze, tape, pain reliever, motion sickness meds, upset stomach meds, and allergy meds.
Determine your navigation style. Do you prefer using GPS on your car or Google maps on your cell phone? Just in case GPS signal is lost, it’s always a good idea to pack an atlas or map.
