Did I hear Rode Trip! Ready for an adventure this summer but, wait is your RV ready for the trip? When was the last time your RV had maintenance done? Make sure that your RV has made a pit stop at A1 Body Shop before you hit the road. Here are a few tips on planning a road trip. Happy Travels!
According to an article at uptake.com, “Are You Planning a Road Trip”
“Road trips are like childbirth. Done right, they can be the adventure of a lifetime. Done wrong, and you’re screaming for someone’s head on a platter and demanding to know WHOSE BRILLIANT IDEA WAS THIS?!?!
I am a cheap traveler with a quest to see the world while hanging on to as much of my cash as possible. Needless to say, I’ve taken my share of vacations by car in an attempt to save money. Here’s a few road trip planning tips I’ve picked up along the way.
1. Get the oil changed and your fluids checked before you leave.
I’ve owned a few beater cars in my life. I’ve taken more than one road trip in a lemon. And I’ve been stuck on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere more times than I care to admit. Be ye not so stupid.
Make sure your vehicle is road trip ready before you leave. Have the oil changed, fill up on windshield wiper fluid and make sure you have your license, registration and insurance up to date – and actually in the car with you.
(Because apparently “Officer, I SWEAR I have an insurance card that is not expired sitting on my kitchen counter right now” is not a viable defense in some states.)
2. Go with someone you love. Or like. A lot.
Good companionship can make all the difference on a road trip. The longer the trip, the more compatible you better be with the person you plan to be confined in a car with for hours on end.
Of course, a long road trip in the car can be a great opportunity to get to know someone better. But if you’re thinking of tagging along with people who normally irritate the crap out of you just to save a little dough – think about flying instead.
3. Take turns driving.
As a woman, I’ve never understood those couples where the man is the only who does the driving. This is especially true when driving long distances. If you can manage to get yourself around town by yourself, you can handle a turn at the wheel for a road trip.
It’s nice to get a break from the driving. It’s also nice to get a break from just sitting and watching out the window and trying really, really hard not to say anything when the other driver gets really, really close to the car in front of him. I mean, you know, for example. Don’t be afraid to do some of the driving”
