This weekend is Labor day weekend which I know means some end of summer road trips for a lot of you. So I wanted to share with you some of my personal tips to have a fun and safe road trip.
Limit Your Beverages
Nothing can make a road trip drag on like having to keep stopping to go to the bathroom. It really just ruins the groove of the road. I know as someone who has a tiny bladder and still drinks about 15 gallons of water a day how annoying this is. My advice is try to limit it to one drink and sip it throughout the day.
I don’t know why but whenever I’m on long drives my sweet tooth kicks in! Okay I guess it’s really my sour tooth as I am a huge sour candy fan.
My favorites car snacks:
Sour Punch Kids
Trolli Sour Bite Crawlers
Test Your Tires
You want to blow off steam not blow out your tires. Before hopping on the road run over to your local tire shop and get your tires checked out. Tires can go from okay to dangerous pretty quickly. I have no partnership with Discount Tire but I just have to say I love them! I know most locations offer a free tire air check and they will even tell you if your tires are starting to go out. Find one near you to get your wheels tested before you hit the road.
You know that awesome feeling when you’re on the road listening to great tunes with great company and the sun is shining..in your eyes? Be sure your view isn’t obstructed don’t forget your favorite shades.
Sing Loud and Proud
Whether it’s 2 hours or 10, great tunes are essential for a successful road trip.
I for one am a huge music fan and consider myself pretty complex, one day I might be listening to Selena Gomez, the next I might be jamming out to Selena, the fallen Tejano star. You may be shocked to hear this but I am a bit of a control freak and the same goes for the car radio. I did go on one mini road trip this summer and the rule, my car my iPod, my music.
So here is my list of top road trip songs for your listening pleasure.
