Summer Road Trip Prep

Pack some snacks

The occasional stop at a gas station or rest stop is pretty much unavoidable, but you can minimize the amount of times that your journey grinds to a halt by thinking ahead. Instead of stopping off every time someone complains of hunger, have a plethora of healthy snacks and drinks handy. This will keep everyone happy — or at least as happy as they can be on a long drive.

Have things to do

Want to avoid rounds of being asked “are we there yet?” Keep your kids otherwise occupied by bringing plenty of books, games, movies, and music. If you’ll be relying on smartphones or tablets to provide entertainment, make sure that you have the means to keep them fully charged. To help avoid conflict, enforce rules about sharing to make sure that everyone gets a turn.

There are plenty of things that you can do to ease the stress and make your next vacation a breeze. One surefire step is to bring your vehicle into Gossett Kia for a check-up before you take it out into the great wide open.
