Take a Road Trip with Your Family

Friday, February 13, 2009

Vacations are very fun, interesting, and a great way to bond with your family. But, the most affordable way to have a super vacation is taking a road trip. Before you go on your road trip extravaganza, read this article and you will have the time of your life!

Get your car checked and any necessary maintenance performed. Have the gas tank filled and the oil changed.
Plan where your family will stay during the trip. It can be with a hotel, with a relative, or even with a friend.
Pack everything you'll need. If you have limited car space, use strict limitations. It's a good idea to include change for a laundromat, should you get stranded at your destination. Or, you could have everyone pack half the amount of outfits as they'd need, and do the laundry on the day they run out.
Make sure you have a recent road map. A road map from your last road trip to your destination in 1990 will be outdated. Highlight your planned route.
Have an emergency kit in your car. This should include a cellular phone, matches, flares and a car starter.
Be kid-prepared. If you are driving with kids, give them plenty of activities to do, especially if your destination is a long ways from your home.
Be sure not to fall asleep behind the wheel. If you need, stop at rest stops or the side of the road to stretch your legs or take a power nap. Coffee will not help you stay awake.

If you or any passengers are prone to motion sickness, give them Dramamine and supply paper bags - not plastic.
