Planning Your Perfect Road Trip

As the weather gets a little cooler here in lower Wisconsin some thoughts may be popping into your head to do a road trip to a warmer area for a short period of time. Before you start your trip, it is important that you are ready. No matter who is traveling along side you, the snack selection or destination, a road trip is always a great time. We have a couple tips and tricks for you to help keep your road adventure perfect. 

As you sit down and think about where you want your vehicle to take you there's a couple things to think about. Do you want to stay on highways or go off course a little and take the scenic route? What is your time frame? Do you want to travel back roads that have less traffic or hit the big cities? Do you need to go to straight to your destination or can you stop and sight see along the way? These are great things to have figured out before you head to your destination. The options are endless when you are picking your destination and route! 

As you are thinking about your final destination and what route your taking, make sure your vehicle can handle it. Getting your vehicle inspected prior to leaving on your trip can help prevent problems from occurring. No one wants to gets 300 miles down the road and need an oil change or a light bulb burnt out. You don't want your air conditioning to fail on you on your way to Arizona. Safety and comfort should be on the top of your list. 

We can't forget those snacks and drinks to keep us energized on this trip! Some snacks to pack along may be somethings like beef jurkey, fruit cups, trail mix, or popcorn. Be sure to also pack lots of water to keep you hydrated and caffeinated beverages to help keep the driver alert. Keep in mind for things such as a flash light, jumper cables, blankets, extra clothes, some simple tools, and tire plug kit.
