HOW TO PLAN THE PERFECT ROAD TRIP

Written by

So you’ve got some free tome and you want to hit the road ?
I’m angel and this is how you plan the perfect road trip.

Road trips. Group of best friends. The open road. An unforgettable adventure or a total nightmare.
Everything really depends on the people you’re with, the place you go, and how you get there. Follow these tips , and you’re sure to have the experience of a lifetime.

First thing first: choose your vehicle wisely.

You want some thing spacious so you can spread out and stay comfy on those long rides.

Step two: Assemble your squad.

Even more important than your ride is your squad. These should be your best friends because you’re going to be stuck in a car with them for a long, long time.
The larger your group, the more time you’re going to spend waiting for everybody to get ready. So thin your squad for a lean,mean road-trip team.

Step three: plan your route.

Get everyone on the same page about where you’re going and what you’re doing. talk about must do’s.. and won’t do’s. Don’t plan too much in advance, but research places that you know you want to visit. So you don’t show up on the  one day if the year that is closed.
Website such as Road Trippers and On The Way help you plan your route and find cool places to stop. Remember… and this might be the most important point of all.. plan to go slower than you think.
Trying to do too much in too little time will just make things hectic and could ruin the experience.

Step four: final preparations.

Before you hit the road, get your car tuned, fill the tires with air, and make sure you have the following:
a spare tire, car’s registration and insurance, a real map to inspire detours, Google maps and a sim card to power it, spare change for toll roads, a sleeping bag a bivvy sac for rough camping, a multi port charger, trash bags, duct tape, first-aid kit, air freshener, and plenty of snacks, a laundry bag, a good camera, water bag and refillable bottles. A spare key in case you lock yours in the car, toilet paper for emergencies and hand sanitizer.
And if your car is a little bit old, you should bring a fire extinguisher.
After that, fill up your tank and hit the road.
Once you’re moving, the key is a positive attitude and plenty of gumption.

Next up: lodging.

if you have a camper can, you’re sorted. if not, camp under the stars or use couch surfing for free local experience. There’s no need to book every night in advance. So play it by ear. Use apps like Hotel Tonight or Instant Book on Airbnb to pick up rooms on the fly.
For food buy a small collapsible cooler and fill it with food you don’t need to cook.
Avoid stress  about money by creating a kitty found. Everybody throws some money into a jar, which gets used for all road-trip essentials. Otherwise you can use apps like Trips Splitter to keep track of how much everyone spent and divide the bill afterwards.
Also it’s super important to keep a balance between being spontaneous and being practical.  Know when it’s tome to haul ass from A to B, or when it’s time to get out of the car and go explore.

Your main expenses are going to be fuel, Accommodation and food. Here’s how to avoid breaking the bank.

Number one: gasoline.

Cut weight by avoiding all unnecessary junk and packing as light as possible.

Drive the speed limit.

This improves fuel efficiency by up to one-third.

Avoid the lonely gas station.

Make sure you fill up in big cities where competition keeps prices lower.
