Some tires have indicators so you can check the manufacturer’s website if you see cracks in the sidewalls or blisters and bulges you’re due for a new set. Also, if your car vibrates or pulls to the side, you may need an alignment before taking off. And finally, if everything looks good, make sure the tires are inflated to the correct pressure.

Keep your medication safe
All medication generally comes with a warning label about storing in a cool dry place. In most cases, it is recommended that they are not left in an area that may exceed 30 degrees
So it is necessary to keep your medicines in low temperature.

Take care of drinking bottles. As there are several plastic bottles in the market and we are not sure about a good plastic material always keep the bottles in a cold place, if you like to keep a bottle of water in your car, remember to change it regularly, indeed it will be good to stay healthy.

Store the food in an  ESKY
Whether you are planning to on a long or short trip, there is need to pack your food in an esky or cooler bag with a frozen storage ice block it will help to keep it fresh.
In the market a  great range of cooler bag and esky are available, you can find something to meet your travel needs.

Read labels always
Packaging is generally provided for your own safety. So always take a few minutes to locate the ‘warning’ labels on items you wish to store in your car to make certain there are no advice about keeping away from extreme heat.

Drink more water
Always carry few bottles of water when you start your journey. Drinking at least one glass of water every hour while driving is a good way to avoid dehydration.

Emergency Tools:
On a long journey no matter how well you have serviced the car. So it’s better to carry an emergency tool kit it will be definitely useful anywhere you need.

Always park the car in the  shade
The internal temperature of a car parked in sunlight can be increased to unbelievable degrees. Try to park the car in the shade and do not leave children or pets inside, even with open windows. Temperatures can rise as much as 12 degrees within 15 minutes.

Protect Your Data:
When you left the CDs in  sunlight or even left inside your car would have the layer containing the data peeling off as temperatures rise,  if you want to save your data, try to avoid leaving CDs on the dashboard

  1. Thanks for sharing this. Your tips are very helpful. I am a travel freak and travel a lot. Next year Alaska is on my card.Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness., and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Next year I definitely want to explore Albany.
    People often have a theme that they base their worldly travels on, but how about a mental mantra for your travel? Out of a cheerleading event that consisted of our family shouting supportive words at our daughter who was attempting to kill a rather monstrous spider that the rest of us were too chicken to get close to, came this great quote, “If you don’t think, and you just do….then it’s done!”

    This quote came back to haunt me when on vacation in Seattle. I thought it would be a great idea to take the kids on the Seattle Great Wheel, the ferris wheel overlooking the ocean, but as we approached it, I realized how high it went and immediately panicked! Just as I had decided to put the kids on it on their own, my daughter says, “Come on dad…If you don’t think, and you just do….then it’s done!” What could I do at that point?! She was telling me to stop thinking and creating more fear about the situation and just get on the thing!
    “If you don’t think, and you just do, then it’s done!” We all now keep this quote in our back pocket, ready to whip out at any time to push one of us forward into an adventure we know they won’t regret. No hesitations, don’t allow any time for fear to set in, and be prepared for your kids to turn your life advice back on you
