Destinations

One of the first things you will need to decide on is where your adventures are going to take you. You may be going on a staycation, therefore the locations will be close to home. Alternatively, you could be incorporating a road trip with your travels further afield. If you are going on a solo mission then it is best to write everything down so you know what you will be doing on any given day. There are plenty of gorgeous places to go, for example, you may wish to drive down the famous Route 66. 

Accommodation 

Something else to consider when planning a road trip is where you are going to stay along the way. There are a few options here, if you are driving a motorhome or RV then you could stay in that. Some of them come complete with full-sized beds or sofas that transform. You could also attach a camper trailer to the back of your truck or car. You can get your hands on trailers that fold down and they come with kitchen, dining, and bedroom areas integrated. 

Contact

When you go away on a road trip or any sort of holiday it is important you let people know back home where you are going. You may have heard stories about people going missing while traveling, this can and does happen. Although it doesn’t happen very often, it is always better to be safe than sorry. You may have a group chat that contains all your close friends and family, it is simple to add a message here with your destinations and dates. It is also nice to check in regularly so your family knows you are safe and sound. 

Sites To See

Finally, when you are planning your list of destinations you could also write down some of the sites you want to see on the way. If you are going down a famous route then there will always be places to stop for picture opportunities along the way. Take Route 66 for example, you could stop off at the historic Brick road in Auburn and the Drive-in theater in Litchfield. Wherever you stop, be sure to take lots of pictures to remember your trip.
