If you intend to go on a long road trip, it’s essential to do your planning as early as you can especially if you are with small kids. Apart from doing the necessary steps to reserve your target hotel or identifying the many places of interest that you want to see, make a list of the things that you should do and bring beforehand. You do not want to risk leaving behind something important. For starters, here are just a few of the many things to remember.
Familiarizing yourself on how to get to your target destination is crucial, especially if this is your first time. You can ask around or search the world wide web for the best roads to take. Do download and print a map and assign someone to be your navigator to guide you through.
As a way to deal with possible delays that you may encounter as a result of road mishaps, see to it that you have adequate food and drinks. Place drinks in a cooler filled with ice so that they remain cold even after several hours of being on the road. Prepare healthy munchies such as home-made sandwiches that are individually wrapped so they are easy to hand out and handle.
One major consideration is the condition of the car that you will use. A week or two prior to your scheduled vacation, have it inspected by an experienced mechanic who might recommend certain maintenance works done like car tuning. If you want vehicle tuning beyond factory performance, aside from fundamental upgrades such as intake headers and exhaust, Vehicle ECU Remapping is the next best thing to do. This can best be confirmed by having your car undergo Dyno Tuning. Make sure that that the tires are in good condition and that they’ve got adequate pressure. Remember to gas up and leave your home with a full tank.
In an effort to keep yourself alert and everybody else entertained during the trip, make sure that your stereo system and DVD player are working well. Prepare a CD of your favorite upbeat tunes and make one as well for your kids. Be ready to pop a cartoon or movie into your DVD player to divert the kids’ attention in case they get bored or restless.
