Best Ways To Document Your Travels

Hitting the open road and taking off on an adventure will leave you with memories that you’ll never forget. No matter how much you try and explain the beauty of a specific sunset or the sound of something you’ve never heard before, people simply won’t be able to feel it in the same way as they would’ve in person. And yet, for those that love to travel, you can bet that there will be plenty of people who are interested in keeping up with your adventures.

We now live in a time where it is easier than ever to share your journey with friends, family, and even complete strangers who may be interested. But since you’ll want to keep your backpack light and your focus on the road ahead, it’s important to minimize the tools you use to share your travels.

Here’s a look at the best ways to document your travels, no matter where your adventure takes you.

Personal Journal

The memories that you make while traveling will last a lifetime. But while the most specific events may stand out to you forever, keeping a personal journal will help you remember the more intimate and special moments. In addition, a personal journal lets you be honest and truthful in what you say, which will help you remember how you felt while traveling.

travel-journal

Online Blog

When writing that personal journal, consider doing so online. From there, you can then copy some of what your personal thoughts were and then add it to an online blog that you share with family and friends. It can be a lot of work and effort to write out your thoughts, and even more work to censor it for others to read. But if you can take your personal thoughts and edit it in a way that everyone will enjoy, then you’ll be more likely to document your adventures while traveling.

Social Media Photo Album

Social media makes it easier than ever to share your adventure with others. From Facebook to Instagram, there are plenty of ways for you to share photographs and moments with your friends and family. What’s great about this is that you don’t even need a lot of fancy camera equipment, but instead just a smartphone that fits in your pocket.

Pro Tip – While uploading photos, use hashtags to organize your images. This will make it easier for people to search for your pictures using the social media platform of their choice.

Send Postcards To Yourself

A creative way to remember your adventure is to send postcards to yourself while traveling. Pictures are great, but postcards offer a chance for you to write a quick message while caught in the moment. Once you return home from traveling, you’ll have your postcards waiting and you can relive the adventure again as you read your personal notes.

It’s important to get lost in the moment while traveling, rather than trying to find that perfect picture that will go viral online. However, when you utilize the ways mentioned here for documenting your travels, you can do both and end up with a memory that you’ll never forget.

What To Keep In Your Glove Box

When utilized efficiently, the glove box in your car can be a valuable part of your vehicle. This is the place where you can keep everything from an emergency First Aid kit to your insurance and registration. However, it’s important that you don’t overcrowd your glove box with unnecessary items that will only get in the way.

Here are some of the items that you are most likely to need when behind the wheel of your car. By keeping them handy in your glove box, you’ll be able to easily access everything inside without having to rummage around your vehicle aimlessly.

Drivers Information

This is a biggie. In the event you ever get pulled over or get into an accident, you’ll need to be able to show your license and registration in a hurry. If you aren’t able to show these documents, then you can be arrested. Do yourself a favor and keep these things within reach and you’ll be able to keep calm in an otherwise uneasy situation.

Flashlight

Having a flashlight will come in handy at night. There are countless scenarios that could take place that would result in you needing to pull over and check your car out at night. But if you don’t have a flashlight, you’ll be putting yourself in danger. While you may keep the rest of your emergency items in the back, keep your flashlight in the glove box.

glovebox

First-Aid Kit

There are some oversized First-Aid kits that will not fit into a glove box. However, you can get a miniature kit that has just the basics and leave it within reach. Hopefully you never have to use it, but a small First-Aid kit will come in handy in the event of a minor medical mishap.

Pro Tip – Inside of your First-Aid kit, include an In Case of Emergency (ICE) card. This is a common place that people will look, and they will find contact information in the event of an accident or other emergency.

Slimed Down Version of Your Owners Manual

Your owner’s manual is important, but it isn’t something that you need to keep in your glove box at all times. That being said, there is still some valuable information that will come from your owner’s manual. Therefore, keep just the important details in a slimed down version, and then toss the rest of the book in a safe place.

Phone Charger

With as much as you rely on your smartphone for, keeping a portable charger will help you avoid a dead battery while on the road. While you may be able to charge your phone when you get home in most cases, think about what would happen if your battery died and you had an emergency while on the road. You can avoid this from happening by keeping a phone charger readily available in your glove box.

Your glove box space is limited, so it should be optimized with the items that you’re going to need most. As you fill your glove box, consider the valuable items here as the things you are most likely to need while on the road.

4 Quick Maintenance Musts

Those wanting to keep their ride on the road as long as possible know that they need to keep up on general maintenance. While everything in your car may be running well, it’s only going to stay that way if you keep up with maintaining it as such. But while everyone knows the importance of having their oil changed or rotating their tires, there are also plenty of quick maintenance musts that should also be considered.

Many of these general maintenance considerations may be something that you think you can keep pushing off for, “next weekend.” But when you see how easy they are to follow, you’ll be much more likely to keep up with maintenance.

Looking for the perfect afternoon task to keep your ride on the wheel? Here are 4 quick maintenance musts that you should follow with your vehicle.

Check The Oil

Even if it’s not time to get your oil changed, that doesn’t mean that you can’t be proactive in ensuring its health. The next time you are at the pump and filling up on gas, pop the hood and take a look at your oil as well. Not only should it be at a level that is safe, but it should also be as close to the color as it was when you first put it in. If it’s gotten too dark, then it’s a telling sign that it’s time to change your oil. By just checking your oil, you can keep your ride on the road in great condition.

oil-change

Put In Some Elbow Grease

You have plenty of things to do with your weekends other than sit around and wash your car. But when you think about the benefits that a coat of wax can have for your vehicle’s paint, it’s well worth taking the time to apply a coat at least once every six months.

Maintain Those Accessories

It’s not just about the paint or what’s under the hood. Instead, you may have other accessories as part of your vehicle that need to be maintained as well. For example, if it’s been a while since you last changed out your windshield wipers, take the time to switch them out in order to avoid scratches on your windows. Or if you have a roof rack that holds your favorite outdoor gear, make sure it’s still secure and in place in order to avoid any serious issues the next time you head out on a big vacation.

Keep It Clean

Finally, just do yourself a favor and keep your car clean. You’ll be surprised how much more you care for something if it’s in a condition that you are proud of. Keeping your car clean requires minimal effort on your part, but the payoff will be big for your spirits – as well as the longevity of your ride.

Keeping your rig on the road means that you’ll have the opportunity to see sights all over the country and make tons of adventures with your family. But in order to make sure that you have as many years as possible, keep these tips in mind for quick maintenance for your ride.

Where To Store Your Motorhome

Owning a motorhome can be a great joy. Once you load up your rig, you can hit the open road and go pretty much anywhere you can imagine in the country. This will be sure to make for some amazing memories that you’ll tell for years to come.

However, one of the downsides of owning a motorhome includes the time that you don’t spend actually in the rig. That is because you will likely need to find somewhere to store your motorhome, which can be a headache if you don’t know where to look. Luckily for you, there are some great ways to determine the best place for you to leave your rig.

Here are some things to keep in mind as you are looking at places to store your motorhome.

A Place You Trust

You invested a lot into this rig, so it only makes sense that you will want to store it at a place you trust. Sure, there may be some other places that are a bit cheaper each month, but is that really where you want to leave something that you spent thousands of dollars on? Instead, go for a place that you know is in a good neighborhood and run by reliable people. You can check for ratings online, which will provide insight with other motorhome owner’s experiences.

Doing a bit of due diligence before you settle on a place will help you find an motorhome storage lot that you can trust.

A Place That Is Willing To Always Help

Some storage lots will go even further to enhance your experience as a motorhome owner. By offering concierge services, some motorhome storage lots take all of the hassle out of being an motorhome owner. While your motorhome is in their possession, concierge services often include:

  • Servicing of your rig while in storage.
  • Rides to and from a destination to the storage facility.
  • Cleaning and detailing of your rig.
  • Flushing of water tanks.
  • Refueling of propane tanks.

Imagine how much more enjoyable it would be to own a motorhome if you didn’t have to worry about all of these tedious maintenance tasks. With concierge services during the storage of your motorhome, you will keep your rig in its best condition, without having to break a sweat while doing it.

A Place That Is Accommodating

Is the storage lot that you rely on big enough for your needs? If you have an oversized rig, then you need to ensure that the lot can accommodate. On the other hand, if you have a smaller rig, you’ll want to ensure that you aren’t paying for more than what you need. It can take time to find the right fit for your motorhome, so be sure to value it once you do.

With as much as you put into your motorhome, it’s imperative that you store it in the best conditions possible. When looking for an ideal storage facility for your motorhome, consider all of the tips on this list to ensure its safety for the long haul.

How To Prep Your Motorhome For Tailgating

It’s almost time for kickoff, as football season is just a few weeks away. That means it’s time to dust off your lucky jersey, as you get ready to support your favorite university or professional team.

While everyone knows that bragging rights are earned on the field, a true fan knows that what goes on in-between the lines is only half of the excitement. That’s because hours before the game even starts, the day begins with tailgating outside. And if you have a motorhome, that’ll make your tailgating even more enjoyable.

To make the most of game day for your favorite team, here are some tips for how to prep your motorhome for tailgating.

Plan Ahead

The more that you plan ahead, the less you’ll have to deal with on game day that will give you a headache. Call ahead to make sure that you know the space restrictions for the lot that you’ll be parking your rig at. With a motorhome like the New Class C – 2016 Dynamax Corp REV 24TL, you’ll be able to fit into even the snuggest of parking spaces. However, if you have an oversized rig, then you will need to show up early if you plan on parking where all the action is going to be.

Something else to plan ahead for with your motorhome is food safety on game day. You’re obviously going to be cooking up some delicious eats for your guests to enjoy, so make sure that you keep all food properly stored before you begin cooking it. This will keep everyone cheerful once the game starts, rather than down due to a illness.

tailgating

Who’s Coming With?

Keeping your guests in mind while tailgating will ensure that everyone has a great time. Are you bringing people within your motorhome, or are people meeting you there? Are you planning on letting people sleep in your rig after the game, or are you heading out right away? By planning for how many people you have to accommodate for on game day, you’ll be sure to avoid any issues that would arise due to limited space.

Let Everyone Know Who You Support

There will be no denying the team that you support when you are rolling down the interstate on the way to the game. That’s because you’ll want to load up your rig with decals and other team gear that lets others know where you are headed. Once you get to the game, put on the body paint to let your true spirit show.

Leave Some Things For Next Time

Don’t forget that game day isn’t over until you get home and properly secure your rig until next time. There is likely to be some things, such as toiletries, that you can keep in your rig. However, if there is any food that needs to be taken out of the fridge, or sheets and towels that need to be washed, then be sure to handle this once you get home. Even though you may want to relax after your team wins the big game, it’s important you properly maintain your rig if you want it to last for years to come.

Make game day even better with these tips for prepping your motorhome for tailgating.

3 Reasons to Upgrade Your Motorhome

We know that you love hitting the open road in your rig, as it allows for you to see the country in ways like never before imagined. During your adventures and excursions, it’s easy to get attached to your motor home as you create tons of memories with the entire family. However, if it’s been awhile since the list time you did so, it might be time to upgrade your motorhome.

Because a motor home can cost a substantial amount of money, it’s something that you should prepare for accordingly. And if you know what signs to look out for that are immediate indicators for upgrading, you can make sure that you are prepared for the next upgrade.

Here are some of those indicators and 3 reasons to upgrade your motorhome.

Keeping Your Travelers Safe

RV safety has come a long way in recent years. When you consider the importance of the cargo inside, which includes everyone and everything, it only makes sense that you are going to want to have the safest RV on the road. Newer RV models are going to be safer, thanks to better advancements they put into building them. Whether it’s new brakes on the wheels or a higher quality crash rating than previous models, newer rigs will have the needed advancements to keep your travelers safe.

Not only is a newer motor home going to be more safe because of the improvements that go into it, but also because it gives you a clean slate on your rig. Maybe you haven’t changed the oil in a while or you haven’t properly flushed the water system in the rig. Whatever it is, those sorts of issues can pile up to become a big problem for your home. However, you can avoid that by starting fresh with an upgraded motor home unit.

showimagerv

A More Enjoyable Vacation

Think about how your first car maybe didn’t even have a CD player in it, while now cars will talk to you in order to find out where you want to make reservations for dinner tonight. These same sorts of improvements can be seen in motorhomes, which is why it may be time to upgrade yours if it’s outdated. You deserve to travel in comfort and style if you are going to be in your rig throughout the day, so consider an upgrade if your old motor home doesn’t have the tech that you need.

Furthering Your Investment

Waiting a long period of time before upgrading will result in losing even more money in your current rig. But if you trade it in, you’ll be able to invest in something new that will help you keep a higher level of investment moving forward. A rig will lose its value if you don’t consider trading it in, but doing so helps you stay in the game moving forward financially.

You already know that your motor home is one of the best investments you’ve ever made and you love every second you spend in it. But if it’s been awhile since you last upgraded, consider this insight as to why you may want to do so for your motor home.

Best Interior Motorhome Cleaning Tips

Even if you aren’t a clean freak that obsesses over the cleanliness of your living quarters, you’ll still want to keep your motor home in the best of shape. Not only will a clean motor home make for a more enjoyable time while on the road, but it’ll also help you sustain value in your rig for when the time comes to trade it in.

Chances are that the cleaning considerations you make for your home will be different than those that you make for your motor home. So if you want to ensure that the inside of your rig stays as beautiful as the outside, here are the best interior motorhome cleaning tips to keep in mind.

Start From The Top Down

If it’s your first time cleaning a rig, be glad that you came here first. You won’t believe how many people start by cleaning the inside of their rig from the bottom, only to wonder why things have gotten dirty again so quickly. By starting from the top and working your way down, you’ll be able to do a more complete job of cleaning your rig. You’ll also avoid the frustration of having to go back and do everything a second time once you realize the mistakes you’re making.

iStock_000000524349XSmall

Have A Routine

There are probably a million other things that you’d rather be doing with your Saturday, but being the owner of a motor home comes with responsibility. To make sure that you clean often enough, have a routine. Maybe it’s once a month if your family travels a lot, or just seasonal if you only take it out occasionally. Whatever it may be for your family, do yourself a favor and make the time for it and have a routine that you stick to.

Would You Wash Yourself With That?

Having a motor home is a big expense as it is. When it comes time to cleaning your rig, you may want to save some cash and go with cheaper options. However, keep in mind that your motor home is an investment that should last for years. If you use inferior cleaning supplies, chances are that you won’t get nearly as much for your rig as you had hoped when the time comes to resell.

Don’t Forget The Details

You’ve mopped the floors and wiped down the windows – that’s great. However, there are a ton of other things that you may be overlooking for cleaning the interior of your motor home. While cleaning, be sure to pay special attention to the vents, pipes, and other areas that are specific to a rig. You may not be used to cleaning these areas at your home, but you won’t want to overlook them in your rig.

When you first purchased your motor home and thought about all of the awesome adventures you’d be taking part in, chances are you didn’t jump up in excitement over the idea of cleaning it. But if you want to make sure that your rig stays as valuable as possible, for as long as possible, keep these tips in mind for your interior motor home cleaning considerations.
