So, you've finally decide to plan a road trip. Congratulations! Road trips are always fun. You get to mix in a little bit of adventure and excitement with some learning and bonding experiences. Plus, you always seem to get some really cool pictures out the entire ordeal. However there are other things to consider when you're considering planning a road trip. For instance, you should always know when you want to take the road trip and to where. Once you have figured that out, invite a bunch of friends and get out a road map to decide what your path of least resistance is going to be. Whether you're traveling with family or with friends, it is always a good idea to pack a travel safety kit in case of emergencies because let's face it, life is unpredictable. For road trips, especially those made during the winter, the American Red Cross suggests constructing a travel kit to bring with you. This travel kit should remain in your vehicle throughout the year and can vary from family to family or person to person. The kit should include the following items:
- Flashlight with extra batteries (make sure you check the power of these occasionally)
- Blankets and/or sleeping bags
- Booster cables
- Fire extinguisher (5lb, A-B-C type)
- Bottled water
- Non-perishable food items (check your local grocery store)
- Compass and road maps
- Tire repair kit and pumps
- Extra clothing
- Sack of cat litter or sand (for snowy/icy weather)
- Tow rope (in case you get stuck!)
Some people don't realize the value in having these things in their vehicles until it's too late. There are many people out there who think it's a waste of space to have all of these items weighing their cars down. However, if you ever get stuck, they can really come in handy. Other items to consider include: rain gear, folding chairs, bright cloth and a utility knife. In this day and age, it is also a good idea to make sure that your cell phone is fully charge before you leave to go anywhere. When possible, always make sure that you have two cell phone chargers with you: one for the car, and one to take with you in case you have to walk to a nearby residence or place of business to get help.
If you are traveling with small children, make sure you go over all of the safety procedures with them, this way they will be informed should something happen. Also, practicing safety with your children from an early age helps to reinforce the importance of basic safety, which is something they will grow to appreciate and carry with them throughout the rest of their lives. If you are traveling in someone else's vehicle for a long trip, there is no shame in making sure that they have some sort of safety kit put together. If they don't, then you can help them create one or simply bring your own. Hopefully, you won't have to use it!
