This sounds simple, but you should make sure that everything is in order. Is your vehicle ready to drive long distances? Do you have a plan on where to go and when to stop? Are your tires filled to the proper amount? Do they need to be rotated? Does your vehicle need an oil change? If you answered yes to all of these answers, you are set for that family road trip. 

Take Shifts 

Of course, while you are driving there are some important things to remember. You shouldn’t strain yourself to make that next pit stop thirty miles down the road. If you need a break, take a break. You shouldn’t drive for more than three or four hours at a time. Make sure to take turns while driving for a better experience on the road.  

Stay Alert 

If you are driving throughout the night, you are going to need some rest some time during the day. If you are tired while driving, you will need to stay alert. Turn on the air conditioning to keep yourself from getting too comfortable. Eating snacks also help you stay awake and keep off that midnight hunger. If nobody is resting, playing music loudly may help as well.
