Road Trip Survival Guide

Road_survival_guide_200 Summer might be over, but that doesn't mean we don't still have weekends to enjoy! Heck, Thanksgiving is practically around the corner, so whether you're loading your kids into the family minivan to visit grandma or packing your galpals into a convertible for a weekend getaway, America's roads offer plenty of opportunities to create treasured memories. But without the right prep work, you could be left spinning your wheels, so take some time to plan your trip and make sure your car is ready for the journey with a cool-little glove box-sized booklet you can download directly from Shell.  It's a great reference that will prepare you for all of your future road adventures.

Special sections include how to make your vehicle road-ready, a checklist of things to do before heading out, 10 tips for keeping the family entertained while on the road, and a collection of fun road trip games. It's also got a page to plan your trip, and offers tips to help you stay alert behind the wheel. A handy tear-out page contains blanks to fill out so you can leave your itinerary with a friend or neighbor at home in case of an emergency. It's really an awesome little guide!
