The best seasons for going on a road trip are spring and summer, as traveling in winters has always its disadvantages. But still if you planned a road trip in winters, there are few things, which should be taken care of before you go out.
Things your car kit should be loaded with;
- Bottled water
- A flag or firecrackers to attract the attention of passersby if you are lost or stuck
- A sleeping bag and blanket
- Extra pair of clothes and shoes
- Emergency food (tin or packets)
- A candle with a candle stand
- A water proof Match Box
- First aid box
- Emergency Light or Flashlight with extra pack of batteries
- Fire extinguisher
- Booster cables
- Snow brush
- Antifreeze oil
- Rags and Paper Towels or tissue papers
- GPS and road maps or a compass
- Mobile phone charger
Other Important things, which should be done before going out-
1. You should inform your family, relatives, or friends that where exactly you are going and till when you would be back.
2. Take a proper rest and catch on your naps before leaving for the road trip.
3. Take your car for complete inspection before hitting the road.
In case the motor mechanic warns you about the poor condition of your vehicle, do not take it on a road trip instead sell your used car. You do not want to face problems on your way to your trip and instead of having fun, you wouldn’t want to spend time fixing your vehicle. There are a lot of automotive dealers and car companies, which work on the rule that we buy any car valuation. So it doesn’t matter how bad condition your car is in, they will take it from you. Purchase a new vehicle and enjoy your road trip to the fullest.
The list given above might help you in having a fun filled road trip, which you were planning for long. You must enjoy the trip, take loads of memorable pictures, and enjoy in the fresh air with amazing sights and views.
