Making sure you have the right tires is an important part of making sure your road trip is fun rather than disastrous. Tracy’s Automotive can help you with that!
The weather in Wichita seems to be up, down and all around, ranging from sweltering heat to predictions of rain storms. It’s yet another reason many people want to get out of town and away from it all. Just the idea of being free to travel again is uplifting.
But tempting as it might be to simply jump in your car and drive, your trip is sure to be more enjoyable with a bit of pre-planning.
That’s one of the tips professional road-tripper James Barkman has for fellow travelers. Barkman, a professional outdoor photographer, has lived in his Volkswagen Westfalia for seven years while traveling around the country and his No. 1 travel tip is pre-planning in the form of reading about what’s out there.
An article at outsideonline.com explains Barkman’s theory: “It’s easy to get caught up in counting down the miles or to become dazed from the interstate and miss that great little restaurant tucked down the road. Researching ahead of time helps ensure you get the goods. ‘Spending time always pays off,’ Barkman says. ‘You end up experiencing these things that you remember forever.'”
Another of Barkman’s top travel tips has to do with your car and investing in good tires: “Digging your van out of the sand makes for a good story, but choosing tires that’ll work for a variety of conditions will ensure that your tales are more about the killer places you’ve been than the mishaps along the way.”
Share NowBarkman notes in the story that he uses tires that “do great on the highway, and they’re really capable in sand, mud, and snow. …I can go to the snow in the morning and back to the coast in the afternoon.”
You might not want to go surfing in the morning and skiing in the afternoon, but the advice is good. Before you set off, make sure your tires are not only in good condition but are fit for the places you plan to go.
