When I was getting my drivers license way back in the middle 1970’s my Father taught me how to maintain my vehicle. He taught me all the important things I would need to know how to check myself after all I was a very independent person. I still do all the necessary checks on all my vehicle every other week or so, but going on a trip such as for Thanksgiving it is quite necessary for everyone’s safety and peace of mind. It is also important to think of yourself, the driver and of course the passengers. You could bring some crackers or hard candy for snacking and always bring blankets just in case the worst happens. Below is a video from youtube to show you just how to go over your vehicle before leaving on the trip. It may not include everything but it sure does cover quite a bit. Happy, safe Travels this Holiday weekend. Say Hi to everyone from me please .
