Neglect or failure could make your road trip end up being taxing and torturous because many things can go wrong when traveling that many miles. Follow these bits of advice, and take your family and friends for a road trip to remember. Plan Loosely The great thing about road trips is the freedom to see what the road has to offer. If your plan is too detailed, there is a chance that you’ll miss some interesting thing along the way. As most roadtrippers do have a time limit, plan what cities you would like to visit and where you would like to sleep every night. Keep the rest of the day free to explore the area.

Mess can add to the fatigue you will be experiencing on the road. It could take up your exciting vacation time and turn it into a massive spring cleaning instead. Aside from a clean cab, you also want to make sure you have a healthy engine. Take your car for service to check fluid levels, brakes, tires, signals, and everything else that could give you problem on the road. Make sure to bring a spare tire and jumper cable for the road, just in case. Prepare Your Entertainment Road trips could have its moments. When you’re driving on the highway andthere isn’t much to see, it could be a bit boring. Bring your iPod or CDs to play in the car. Prepare some car games to play with your friends. Have children on board? Set them up with interesting games or interactive movies from your phone or other gaming gadgets. But remember, don’t play with your phone while driving. Your focus should stay on the road. Page | 2
