The Celsius scale is finally beginning to climb back up, which can only mean one thing – it’s summer! With mountains, picturesque valleys, and plenty of camping available right in our backyard, Central Alberta is a hotbed for adventure. Before you head out, however, check out our summer road trip checklist for your Ford vehicle in 2019 – it’s always best to come prepared!
What are the best things to bring on a road trip?
Drinks and Snacks
Getting hungry and thirsty can happen at any point, especially when you’re behind the wheel of a vehicle. If you’re starting to get the munchies, be sure to bring plenty of snacks and beverages along with you – it’ll keep you and the kids happy and full, without needing to stop off for food.
Your main focus on a road trip should obviously be driving, but boredom is sure to set in at any point. To combat this, pack some books, handheld games, CDs, or anything else you think your passengers will like. Keeping them happy is essential to making your journey that much better!
First Aid Kit
For as fun as outdoor exploration is, it can also be dangerous for any reason. Most new Ford vehicles come outfitted with a first aid kit, so if you encounter any problems, you’ll be well-equipped to treat them. Taking the necessary precautions on a trip is never a bad idea.
