Road trips are amazing adventures for those who want excitement and a regular break from life. You get to meet new people, eat great food and see new things you probably did not even imagine existed on earth (unless you are a regular subscriber to National Geographic or Animal planet). So if you want as close as to perfection of a road trip as possible (usually road trips have the ups and downs both and not just the whole positivity), here are some tips to consider before running off into the sunset.
· A clean vehicle is something of a must
If you do not want to smell the sandwich you had bought a week ago and which you totally forgot about for around 100 miles until you allow yourself a break, then it is a good idea to get your car cleaned up properly through a professional service before embarking in your adventure. It will brighten up your head when you are in the vehicle and smell a good fragrance and not something rotten. Keep a trash can and a trash bag during the trip to accumulate all the empty potato chip bags, twizzler wrappers and other empty wrappers and trash. Also clean out your depo lights so that you can see properly during the night driving routes.
· Do not have a detailed strict plan (memorized or written out)
Road trips are notorious for leading you somewhere else rather than your destination (depending on how fickle your mind is) and having a detailed plan worked about what time to have lunch and where will only spoil things for you in the long run. Sometimes roads can be closed, parks can be under construction, and as a general rule things can go wrong. So design a loose plan with the destinations and the dates figured out and let the flow take you through an amazing journey.
· Stay away from highways
A road trip is all about seeing the country and enjoying the scenery so being stuck in traffic in a freeway for hours at an end can put a swift end to enjoyment. Only use the highways when you are not sure about driving in shady routes (and areas which you are not sure about driving on even when illuminated by your brand new depo lights) and there is no other way to get to an area you want to end up at without spending several grand on gas alone.
Make sure to take tons of water with you when you are going, as well as proper safety equipment and emergency car fixes as well.
