What is your Life's Road Trip Style Behind the Wheel?

My road trip plan this summer is to drive to Lake Tahoe, Calif., with my parents and sisters for a family reunion. Our family spent many wonderful summers on road trips to visit National Parks camping, hiking, enjoying fun times, playing games and singing around the campfire. I love the freedom of road tripping and choosing to go where I want and do what I want.

What is your life's road trip style behind the wheel?

  • Green Blur - Getting from point A to  point B as quickly as possible with the fewest short stops.
  • Meandering Maven - Stopping to wander off your route to take pictures and admire the sights.
  • Ms. Organized - Planning road trips around the best gas prices, hotels deals and pit stops.
  • Short & Sweet - Staying local with short and fun adventures at local parks, lakes and beaches.
  • Adventure Prone - Finding places off the beaten path to explore.

Whether your road trip takes you and your family on a short jaunt to your local park, lake, beach, or across the country this summer, gas prices are definitely a consideration. 

Many families like mine are keeping their vehicles longer, resulting in added maintenance expenses. My road trip vehicle to Lake Tahoe this summer is 11 years old. Do a complete inspection and have a regular vehicle maintenance performed on your vehicle to ensure you are road trip ready. Check your tires for proper tire inflation and tread wear, an important safety check you do not want to overlook. If you need new tires, Cooper tires are a sound investment in your family's well-being, allowing you to feel secure while spending time with loved ones so you can focus on life, not tires.
