We all like to take vacations & getting ready for them is exciting, but how many times to we get to our destination only to find out that we forgot some very important personal effects?
At least two weeks before your trip, take your car to have tune up. Have them check the battery, the coolant, the oil, and your tires. Make sure that you have a current insurance card and a copy of the registration with you.
A week before your trip, check the tire pressure, make sure you have your road map ready, and your trip all planned out. Always check your first aid kit to make sure it is fully stocked. If you don’t have one, get one, they are inexpensive.
The day before, get your GPS or map ready, make sure your phone charger is in your car, and your phone is fully charged.
Here are recommendations for what to bring on your road trip:
- Drinking Water
- Cooler and ice for any medications
