The Tidy Life
July 16, 2015|
Summer = car road trip season. Families across the country hit the road for vacations, family visits and new adventures! According to a survey by Citi and mentioned by TravelPulse.com , summer travel is on the rise after many years of decline, with 72% of those surveyed stating that they would be traveling by car to their summer vacation destination, however, the travelers that were surveyed prefer not to travel on holiday weekends. There is good reason for that, because it was predicted that over 3.5 million people were going to travel via cars over the long Fourth of July weekend alone!
Now that the trip is planned, the bags are packed and the journey is mapped via GPS, it seems like everything thing is completed before the road trip. However, there is one major thing that needs to be checked before the trip — a road trip car check. Since many miles will be added to the car during the trip, it is important to make sure that the car is in good shape before you “hit the road”. Properly preparing a car for a long road trip is important for your family’s safety while on the road.
There should be a road trip car maintenance plan created to make sure that any needed repairs are made before the trip even starts. Always consult with the owner’s manual for specific pre-road trip car maintenance checks that are required above regular maintenance items.
Preparing your car for long road trips will help eliminate costly car repairs when you least expect them (such as traveling in the middle of nowhere with no car repair places within 50 miles or more).
Also keep in mind that there are many great places to visit during the summer that are within a 1 Day Trip from Baltimore such as going to the beach, spending the day in Washington D.C. or driving along Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. No matter the duration, enjoy your summer road trips!
