Essentials for Every Summer Road Trip

Maybe it’s the sense of freedom, excitement and adventure. No matter what the reason is for you, when preparing to embark on your summer road trip, there are a number of essentials that you need to take.

1

Good Cars

Good Cars

Help make your trip stress free by knowing that your car will make it there and back no worries. Used cars are a little more of a gamble, but a good quality used car should be able to make the journey fine as long as you get a quick trip check beforehand. Check your tire pressure, oil, washer fluid and brakes before departing. Be good to your car and it will be good to you.

Good People

Good People

No road trip is complete without good friends to enjoy each moment with. They can make or break the whole trip. Pick those people you know you are most comfortable with. Try and have people who like similar things as you, this will help avoid arguments and add to the fun. Get used to the people you’re going with before you go, know their personalities a little bit. Remember, people will have the biggest influence on you and the way you enjoy your own trip.

Good Music

Good Music

Music is what feelings sound like, so if you have good music, you have good feelings. When there are good feelings on a road trip, the car’s able to be a place you want to be. Music provides both atmosphere and entertainment. Make sure you compile a good amount of songs that can be used in the car for the duration of the trip. Running out of good music is like running out of water. Don’t let it happen.

Tasty Food and Drink

Tasty Food and Drink

Good food doesn’t mean good snacks such as chips and sodas like we all think of when we prepare for a trip. Try getting a selection of some healthy food too. There comes a point on every journey when all you want is water and some fruit. We have all been there. Instead you end up having to pit stop at McDonalds, and come out feeling worse than when you went in. If you’re eating well, you feel well.

Nice Clothes

Nice Clothes

This doesn’t necessarily mean good fashion sense (though that’s important too). It means pack the right clothes for the right occasions. Always prepare for the unexpected. You might go swimming, you might get muddy, and you may lose things, so just prepare right. It is better to take extra clothes and not use them, than it is to have to run into Wal Mart and spend even more money on something you already have at home.

6

Good Attitudes

Good Attitudes

We all know those Debbie downers in our life who just somehow seem to even be unhappy at Disneyland. You don’t have to allow them to ruin your trip, or if this person is you, don’t ruin anyone else’s trip. A positive attitude to every situation will make the trip so much more enjoyable for everyone. You will have more fun and better memories if everyone is happy and excited for the adventure.
