General Tips For Summer Road Trips (Part 2 of 2)

Recently, I wrote an article about ways to save money while road tripping. Now, as the second part to that article, here are some general tips to enhance your summer road trip.

  1. Have a plan- but don’t make it too strict. Before the trip, put together a trip itinerary. Leave a couple hours free each day of the trip in case something comes up.
  2. Prescriptions, allergy medications and Tylenol– bring ’em! Driving, lack of sleep and even breaking from your daily routine can cause headaches, so be prepared.
  3. Bring music! Have everyone going on the trip make 1 or 2 mixed CDs for the road. Make sure to include music that everyone will enjoy- or at least, pretend to enjoy.
  4. Make sure to bring your digital camera and take about a thousand million pictures. (Then pick the best ones and upload them to Facebook to make your friends jealous… Notice how I said “pick the best ones” and not “upload all thousand million pictures”.)
  5. Take turns driving and navigating. (Make sure one person isn’t doing this at the same time- it’s a matter of safety.)
  6. Get refreshed. Driving for several hours can make a person feel disgusting. To feel a little less dirty, keep long hair in a ponytail, wear comfortable clothing and always have mints on you. Stop at rest stops now and then to stretch your legs.
