Going to a road trip is an another way to keep your sanity after your busy days in life. Before hitting the road there are 5 things you should do before you go on a road trip whether you are with friends or family. It's better to keep in mind the circumstances may occur during the road trip so better prepared than sorry. 

5 things you should do before you go on a road trip:

1. Plan- whether we like it or not  planning takes the most important things to do before you go on a road trip. 
  • route- if you plan for a scenic  trip, better plan the best route to stop and embrace the nature.
  • time- for me this is the most important you should do. I remember when we go in Grand Canyon, the late afternoon we drove around the rim it was crowded as people.
2. Emergency number: We never know what will happen on the road, so keep all your emergency number that you needed.
  • emergency road side assistance: make sure to check your insurance if you have an emergency road side assistance.
  • car accident-when  hitting the road, car accident might happen even we don't welcome them so make sure you have a number in hand to taking your legal matters.
  • Health insurance- make sure you always bring your insurance.

3. Pack efficiently: Packing efficiently will save you time and money while hitting the road. It is more important to know all the necessity stuff you needed:
  • mix and match-packing clothing is very hard if you are like me so the best you can do is plan your outfit ever day and best you can do is mix and match.
  • medicine- you never know what will you get during your road trip so better pack all the emergency medicine for stomach, fever, and etc.
  • food- I like to pack snacks and water bottle as I have a little one, so hitting the road is more enjoyable for me once my daughter is a happy camper.
  • camera- your road trip is not complete without camera, better bring extra battery if you needed it.
4. Prepare your car: it's most important before hitting the road.
  • clean your car- put all the things you don't need in your road trip.
  • check your car- before hitting the road, make sure you check your and if you need to change oil, better do it.
  • car tool kit- bring the things that you needed for your car.
5. Relax and Enjoy: you are ready for your road trip so relax and enjoy.
  • get rest- you need to get a good nights sleep before hitting the road. It is very important you are ready to hit the road.
It's not much to do when you plan to go on the road trip. The most important you plan and be flexible so when circumstances occur you can still enjoy.
