Summer Road Trip Essentials

If you are planning a road trip, you’ll have to pack some essentials – and these are for emergencies. However, one other essential is a vehicle that is reliable. If you are in the market for new vehicle, stop by SouthTowne Motors to pick up a new sedan or SUV. And, if you are not ready for a new car this year, be sure you call us for a service appointment even if it is to just check your vehicle before you leave. If we find something that is going to wear out or something that could break on your trip, we’ll let you know so that you can have it repaired before you leave.

First Aid Kit and Other Medical

Be sure you have an extensive first aid kit and that none of the items are out of date. Also, if you used items on your last trip, those should be replaced before you leave, especially if you are traveling with children or a spouse that is on the clumsy side.

If anyone traveling with you is on medications, be sure you have at least a week’s worth of extra medication with you. If you planned a week-long trip but get stranded for a couple of days, you’ll need that extra medication so that you can enjoy the full vacation plus the extra days you were stranded.

Food, Water and Clothing

Even during the summer you should have extra high-energy food, extra bottles of water and an extra change of clothing with you. You could still get stranded and if you happen to get stranded where someone can’t reach you right away, you’ll be glad you have the extra food. And, even in the summer, some nights in certain places can get cool, so you’ll want some cool-weather clothing in case you have to spend a night outside or in your vehicle.

Even if you are only stuck for an hour, but have to get out in the rain to change a tire, you’ll be glad you have a change of clothing.
