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.
