Millions of Americans are currently driving somewhere as you read this sentence. These drivers might be headed to work, running a simple errand, or heading over to a friend’s house.

As spread out as the United States is in terms of its population, the sheer geographical diversity of our nation makes it a truly brilliant place to drive. And while you might lose your mind driving through hundreds of miles in the desert or passing by the endless cornfields of Nebraska, you’re sure to make it up with breathing mountains and stunning vistas as far as the eye can see. The longer you drive, the more your scenery changes.

Tips For Driving Straight Through On An Extensive Road Trip
Be Prepared By Packing Many Different Items
If you’re only planning on stopping for fuel and the occasional bathroom/stretch break, then you’re going to want to make sure that you have everything on-hand inside of your vehicle. Channel in your inner soccer mom and pack plenty of snacks, drinks (namely water), warm and waterproof clothing, blankets, phone chargers, entertainment devices, earbuds, and whatever else is necessary to make your trip more comfortable.
Driving many hours on your own can be a very lonely experience. By having a co-pilot riding shotgun, they can not only help you stay awake through conversation, but they’ll also provide a nice sense of camaraderie. Our recommendation is to road trip in a bigger vehicle with plenty of space for three to four passengers. This way, you won’t get tired of only one person’s company.
Bring A Spare Key (And Keep It In Your Pocket)
Though we wouldn’t usually recommend bringing a spare key on your person, think of it this way: you’re going to be several hundred if not thousands of miles from home — the place that usually houses your spare key. If you accidentally lock you and your passengers outside of your vehicle, now you have to rely on a locksmith company to come bail you out. That’s a tall order if you’re out in the middle of nowhere, and that’s assuming that you didn’t leave your phone in the car.
Plan Your Route And Keep Your Gas Tank Half Full
We know that stopping to fill up on gas eats up precious time when you’re trying to crunch miles, but the five-minute stop to top your tank and stretch your legs is far less costly compared to running out of fuel and finding yourself stranded on the shoulder of the interstate.
Stopping to fill up when you’re under half a hank is also a good idea because, generally speaking, your vehicle gets better fuel economy with fresh fuel.
Bring A Tire Pressure Gauge With You
All of those highway miles will slowly but surely deflate your vehicle’s tire pressure. To get the best fuel economy and ride quality, make sure to periodically check your tire pressure. There’s nothing worse than receiving a tire pressure warning from your vehicle, only to have no gauge to read the pressure.
Switch Turns Driving
This is one of the most useful tips for ensuring that you reach your destination in an efficient manner. This is also why road tripping alone isn’t a great idea, because at a certain point, you’re going to get tired at the wheel. Take shifts driving with your passengers, and try to take a nap if you’re driving at night. With a few rotations, you can cover well over a thousand miles, or even half of Texas!
Drive With The Best Radar Detector On Your Side
There’s no telling where speed traps are set up — that is, unless you have The Judge 2.0 there to warn you of police presence. Avoid speeding tickets and wasted time on your road trip by getting the best passive radar jammer on the market.
