Going by land does have its benefits – you can go as quick or as slow as you like, pick your mode of transportation (auto, trains or bus) and savor the view. You can’t truly do that from a plane or a cruise liner.
Here are some road trip planning hints you can utilize:
Use a map or navigation system. Don’t leave home without it. Other than a water bottle and a dependable auto, a great roadmap or gps is your best friend when touring by land. Pick a map or gps as it has more elaborate info about the roads and highways you may have to utilize.
Before you leave home, decide the route you will be taking. Check replacement routes as well. You never know if there will be a traffic issue or construction work somewhere along the way.
While you’re at it, check for local accommodations, gas stations, restaurants, hospitals or clinics on the way. That ought to give you sufficient info on the most primary things – where to get gasoline, where to eat, rest stops, sleep or your tires checked. That way, you’ll be able to design your trip accordingly.
Bring only the things you’ll really need on this trip. Although if you’ll be going by car, you likely can pretty much bring about anything that will fit in your trunk or backseat. If you’re going by public transportation, make certain to bring only the essential stuff. That will help keep you mobile.
PACKING FOR ROADTRIPS! SPRING BREAK!
Hi Everyone! I thought I would film this process for you guys because someone had requested a video on this and it was such a great idea so why not right.
Never go on a trip by land without having your auto checked. Don’t leave anything to probability. So perhaps the next filling station/repair shop is just ten miles away. What if your auto dies – are you willing to walk the remainder of the way simply to get your car checked? Make certain everything is in order prior to you even leaving your driveway.
Bring some cash, including coins. Not every destination you reach might have an ATM or a bank. Toll roads, credit card processing problems, internet or power outages, can all result in a need for cash. Plus, you never know if you’ll have to place a call from a phone booth. After all, there are still areas where cell phones won’t work.
Road trips can be super fun, but it always works out better if you have at least a few basics taken care of before you leave.
