Prepare Your Vehicle

Schedule a time with your mechanic to have them evaluate how your car is doing. They will check your oil levels, tire pressure, and the various fluids that keep your vehicle running. Purchase the items that you will need if something does happen such as jumper cables, a first aid kit, and road flares. You will also want to pack blankets, an ice scraper, extra masks, and hand sanitizer. Take the excess junk out of your automobile and vacuum it before you leave. This gives you and your family a clean place to ride in as you travel.

Select a Destination

Decide on a few options of places that you would like to travel to then research whether they are open and what rules they might have in place to keep their visitors safe from the COVID-19 virus. When you find one that interests everyone, map out the way to get there.
