5 Things To Do Before Taking A Family Road Trip
School is out, the sun is shining and it’s time to hit the road jack. No matter how you break it down, summertime is road trip time. The way I see it these trips can only go two ways, they are either a smashing success or a miserable failure. Now I’m not saying that you need to go and plan your whole trip out to last detail to make sure that things go right. Hell that takes all the fun out the whole concept of the road trip. Making spontaneous choices and taking a left on that dirt road instead going straight like your supposed to is the kind of thing that make road trips so memorable. That being said, being prepared for your adventure goes along way towards making your trips a success and avoid typical pitfalls of the inexperienced traveler. So take a look at these easy tips for your summertime road trips and let the good times roll. Unnamed

Hit The Road Ready For Anything

  • Cameras: You never know where your adventures will take you. You want to be ready to capture the good times and unique sights to look back on later. Photos help us keep those memories just a little more clear.
  • Keep a Cooler: Getting out on the road is about getting away from your routine. Once you get out there you don’t know when you might get hungry or thirsty and it’s always good to have a little something on hand just in case. If you’ve got kids, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
  •  Emergency Cash Stash: There’s always the chance that something will go wrong no matter how much you prepare. Don’t count on always being able to use your debit or credit card. Cash is king baby!
  • Check Out Your Ride: If you don’t get your vehicle checked out before any big trip you are setting yourself up for failure. The most important item for your families safety and your trips success are  good tires. Cooper Tire Summer Drive Event will have you ready to roll into summertime feeling confident and safe.
