Map, Vacation, Travel, Driving, HolidayAn exciting way to spend your holiday is to take a road trip. A lot of us are in love with our cars, washing, waxing, and polishing them until they’re gleaming bright. Well, for a road trip, they will need to run as hassle free as possible.
To do so, you need to give your car a good over all inspection. How are the tires, the thickness of the tread, the tire pressure? Could it be time to have the tires rotated? What condition is the spare tire in? You don’t need to wait till you get a flat tire and then learn the spare tire is missing or needs air. Also, before you go out on the road for your vacation you need the check the battery, look over the timing belt for cracks and signs of wear and tare. Check the oil and change it together with the oil filter, check the air filter and cleaner, along with other fluids as well. Fluids like coolant, brake fluid, windshield wiper fluid and the wiper blades. In the car you should run the air conditioner and heater also.
After you car is operating at peak performance, there are other security options to consider. Have you got jumper cables, a blanket, flashlight, road flares and a working jack? Plus, a basic toolbox is wonderful to have as well, with wrenches, screwdrivers, and maybe a breaker bar. All these can ensure a safe worry free road trip vacation.
Now you want to determine what your vacation destination is and the length of stay. Are you going on a day trip, for the weekend, a week, or longer? Who will be driving? Do you have one or multiple drivers? What are the age ranges of the passengers accompanying you? Are they all adult or are you taking kids as well? Prepare for stops along the way to stretch, eat and gas up. Do not to forget to think of some games to play and bring water and snacks. A pillow or two may be welcomed as well. There’s nothing worse than facing a Toll Booth without a change on hand, although most have an attendant on duty in at least one lane.
Taking a road trip can be a fun relaxing holiday experience, if it is thoughtfully planned out. It has also become easier than ever to stay on course with the support of navigation equipment which may be bought or probably factory installed in modern cars. Therefore, if it is a drive to Grandma’s, an amusement park, or an educational adventure that awaits. The road trip vacation, can bean enjoyable affordable way to achieve a refreshing change of scenery.
