Taking A Vacation By Car? Don't Forget These Things....

So, you're almost ready for vacation.  Finally!  If you're going by car, here are a few things to remember....

Map out your route on the GPS BEFORE you leave.  Have it tuned and ready to go when you pull out of your driveway. 

Take your proof of insurance, both auto and health insurance.

Take along your extra set of keys.  Give them to your partner so that either one of you can get into the car without having to ask for the keys.

Wipe a coat of Rain-X over your windshield, and get the oil changed and tire pressure checked.

Take a set of maps, in case the GPS does you wrong.

Take along a couple gallons of fresh water to drink, and in case the car overheats.

A well-stocked ice chest can keep you from having to stop along the way so much, and can cut down on the cost of the vacation.

If you wear glasses, take a spare pair.

Don't forget your medicines and over-the-counter pain relievers.

Spray the front of the car with PAM cooking spray and bug bodies will slide off easily.

Put some Shout Wipes or something similar in the car for stains.

A pair of binoculars may come in handy on your trip.

So, there you go.  Be prepared and you'll be a happier traveler.  And have fun on your vacation!
