Tips for surviving a road tripTuesday, October 16, 2012

Category:Outdoor and Recreation

Americans are looking to soak up as much of the warm weather as they can before cold weather takes over and they have to hang up their swim trunks for a pair of skis. With this considered, travel experts recently recommended tips for surviving a road trip whether a traveler is going camping or fishing with friends and family.

Road trips can be a memorable experience if done right, but could also be disastrous if travelers don't plan for the unexpected and decide it's wise to pick up a hitchhiker who thinks it's a fun time to sing show tunes for hours on end. In order to keep everything on the car clean, travelers should enlist the assistance ofHusky Liners® to get mud guardscustom fit floor mats and cargo liners to make sure that they aren't forced to clean up a huge mess when they get back from their trip.

Travel experts also recommend getting the oil changed and fluids checked before leaving for a road trip. Used cars often give drivers the most problems, which is why having them undergo maintenance before going on a trip could make the difference in a trip being a memorable or disastrous one. Being stuck on the side of the road while AAA comes to tow the car away is no fun when you've had other plans, which should give travelers an extra push to have their vehicles checked before going on a long trip.

Bringing garbage bags can also be extremely helpful in making sure everything is clean inside of the vehicle during a road trip. Motorists often accumulate fast food bags or have a large amount of trash that piles up during a road trip, which can cause clutter in their vehicle. But having a small trash bag to take care of the napkins and small items that you don't need anymore can give travelers a more comfortable trip.

Another tip that was given was to get gas before the tank drops to empty. This is another situation that motorists have been known to call on the help of AAA, which could be completely avoided by paying attention to the fuel gauge on the dashboard.
