If you’ve decided to break out of Vegas and hit the road before the summer is over, you need to be prepared for any emergencies that might arise. Crossing the desert can be dangerous if you go off the main highways to explore the gorgeous canyons or desert that lies between us and just about any destination. Be sure to have your car tuned up and that all of the fluids are topped off by your mechanic at Asian Imports. You should also make sure that you’ve checked your tires and spare tire. Once you’ve made sure your vehicle is roadworthy, you’ll want to make sure you pack a few things to take along to be ready for any emergencies.
Just like if you were to travel in the mountains during the winter, you’ll want to make sure you have survival supplies, should you break down in the unforgiving desert. Any survival kit should have extra water, food, and protection from the elements. In the desert, the heat will wear your down and dehydrate you quickly. Water and shade are key for survival. Don’t forget that the desert gets cold at night, so it’s not as silly as it might seem to toss a sleeping bag into the back of the car when venturing across the desert.
Going Off Road?
If you are going off the beaten track, make sure you have a windup radio, preferably one that you can use to charge your cell phone too. A flashlight and a first aid kit are basics you should always have in your car. Before you leave on a trip, double check that all the supplies are well stocked.
If you are planning a road trip and your car, make sure to have your car or truck checked out by a qualified mechanic at Asian Imports. Schedule an appointment to bring it to Asian Imports. Call today!
