Download these Winter Road Trip Travel Printables that include a packing checklist and kids games before heading on a road trip this holiday season.
Last Christmas, we went to Madison, Wisconsin the day after Christmas to visit our son. We checked the forecast before we left and it was unseasonably warm. We didn’t put much forethought into what we packed. By the time we arrived, there was a blizzard warning on the way. We had light jackets, regular shoes, and NO ice scraper or other car supplies. We were not prepared at all for bad weather. The hotel gave us a credit card sized ice scraper, but that is all we had. We got stuck in the snow on a reverse incline without any shovel or other items to help. We were very fortunate that the storm arrived when we were at the hotel and getting stuck in the snow at my son’s apartment was the worst of it.
This year will be different. We will no longer be lulled into the lullaby of the weather forecast and pack for all weather conditions. To make sure we are prepared, I have created a pair of Winter Road Trip Travel Printables. One is a packing checklist for the adults. It is focused on preparing and packing for the road. The other is a winter themed fun sheet to help entertain the kids in the car.
The adults get the Winter Road Trip Packing Checklist. This list is divided into 5 sections, including Car Care. It’s important to make sure your car is road ready before you leave. I started our holiday season with an oil change at my local Walmart Automotive Care Center. Walmart is your one stop shop for preparing your vehicle for the impending cold weather. I chose the Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic Oil Change because is on Rollback to $44.88 from $49.88, now through December 27, 2016.
You might not be familiar with Walmart Automotive Care Center because they are located along the side of the store. Just look for the signs along the edge of the building pointing the way. You can drop your vehicle and enter the rest of the store right through the Automotive Care Center. People living in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee are now able to benefit from oil changes with Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic. Full synthetic motor oil performs much better in extreme hot and cold temperatures. My vehicle is ready for the upcoming winter temperatures!
