Important Things to Do and Prepare Before Your Road Travel

If you are planning on a road travel with your whole family, there are numerous things you should prepare and think about.

So to help you have a safe and smooth travel, consider the following tips.

• If you have prepared an itinerary, provide a copy to someone not included in your travel. Make sure this individual is trustworthy and reliable. This is important so someone knows where you are and where you are heading and someone can contact you in case of any untoward situations. Do not forget to indicate your mobile phone numbers and addresses of the places you plan to go to.

• There would be nothing worse than going back from an enjoyable and memorable travel and seeing your favourite plants or crops completely withered. So, if you expect to be away for a while, ask somebody to come and visit your plants once in a while and water them. However, it would be tough to get someone who is available and would feel convenient in doing such, so consider installing an automatic home irrigation system. Also, if you are leaving behind some pets, make sure there is someone to take good care of them for you.

Tips on How to Stay Safe and Protected When You Travel

• When planning on what to take financially with you as you travel, consider using traveler's checks and essential credit cards instead of cash when you can.

• To protect your money, it's important to carry it close to your body either in a wallet that you can put inside your coat or in your front pants pocket. An even better idea is to put it underneath your clothing in a money pouch.

• Pickpockets are around so stay alert especially when you're in a busy and crowded area, for instance, bus, train and airline terminals, popular tourist attractions and when using public transportation.

• It's important to walk with an air of confidence, your head held high and back straight so you don't come across as if you're lost or distracted.

• Pay attention to potential and intentional accidents, for instance, someone jumping in front a car and falling so that you are intrigued to examine what has occurred or a stranger who offers to take your picture or the most notorious, someone bumping into you causing your drink to spill or your bag to fall to the ground. STAY ALERT!

Preparing the Camping List Essentials

Depending on the kind of trip and activity that you have in mind, your camping provisions should be more or less the necessary items that you are likely to need for outdoor survival. However, this doesn't mean that you'll have to bring along everything that you used to enjoy at home. That sounds more like hauling your house and setting it up on a camping site. Be reminded that in a camping expedition you are to commune with nature and not simply to get yourself pampered.

Preparing your camping list essentials is indeed the most crucial part of the trip. Hence, you should make sure that you have packed the necessary things before setting up camp. With the right items and equipment, there's nothing you should worry about spending a few good days outdoors. The following are a few of the camping must-haves that cover your basic needs:

  • Collapsible Shelters - Start with a tent that answers the specific requirements of your trip. Make sure that it comes equipped with pegs, guy wires, flysheets and groundsheets. Additionally, you should bring tools such as hammer and stakes for pitching up the tent.
  • Bedding - Pack some sleeping bags, pillows and blankets for a comfortable rest inside the temporary shelter. If your tent doesn't come with a sewn-in groundsheet, a roll mat or tarp is a good substitute.
