Before you head out, you should make sure your vehicle is running smoothly. Get an oil change if you’re in need of one and make sure the vehicle doesn’t need new brakes or taillights. You will be driving a long way, so make sure you can do so comfortably.

Take Breaks

It is important not to overexert yourself, especially when driving. You should take breaks and switch drivers every few hours. You shouldn’t drive for more than six hours without taking a break. Make sure to share the load and don’t drive too much.

Snack Break

There are many ways to stay awake while driving. There is loud music or turning on the air conditioning to stay cool. Another tip to staying alert is to have a snack. Have a light snack between meals to help you stay alert while keeping you from feeling hungry all day long.
