Are you heading out on a road trip this winter? Christmas is in just a few days, then New Year's Eve, and of course the kids are on winter break from school as of this afternoon.
We won't be hitting the road this winter on an epic adventure, aside from day trips to the snow and other fun winter-themed activities. Instead the kids and I will be flying to Kentucky to start our day trip adventures from there. I didn't like the idea of braving the freezing, snowy weather driving across country like we did over the summer. Mike did it last year coming out to visit us and there were times he was snowed in at hotels and it took him longer than normal to get out here which of course left him exhausted.
But if you are heading out on the road this holiday season, I've put together a few tips to make the trip go smoothly, especially if you have kids.
Vehicle safety is number one, especially over winter as the ice, snow, rain, and wind can make the driving conditions hazardous. I'm sharing a whole lot of tips that will keep you safe on the road this winter season over at 5 Minutes for Mom. So head on over and get your vehicle in tip-top shape before heading out on the road.
