Prepare for a Summer Road Trip with These Tips!

Summer is the perfect time for a road trip in your Woodside vehicle, and never has that been truer than this year. If you are itching to get out of the house you’ve been cooped up in since March, it’s time for you to take a road trip. If you are going to get out on the road, how do you prepare? We have some tips.

Steps for a Successful Road Trip

The first thing you need to do is check the weather for the time period you’ll be traveling. This may sound silly, but in many cases, preparing for the weather is really important. If you are traveling to the East Coast or the Gulf Coast, you need to watch out for hurricanes. You’ll also need to watch out for tornadoes because summer is prime tornado time in the upper Midwest and Northeast. Check the weather before you travel to avoid unexpected surprises.

Next, check your car out. Begin with the tires. Check that your tires are properly inflated and that they have the right amount of tread on the tire. If you’re not sure how to do this, use a penny, and insert the penny in your tire tread. If you are able to see Abe Lincoln’s head, you need new tires.

Finally, you need to have an emergency road kit ready. Be sure to include jumper cables and something to charge both your cell phones and your car battery if necessary. Also, you’ll need a road map of your trip, just to make sure that you know where you’re going in case your GPS fails. That way, you’re prepared for an emergency on the road.
