Why so many interesting attractions and sightseeing places escape our attention? The point is that many people do not dare drive cross-country. Those who stick to federal highways miss a chance to see and experience something new.
Cross country driving trip: things that you really need to do to get ready for a long cross country journey
#1 Take one more person with driving license with you. He will replace you when you get tired. Besides, you will have someone by your side to talk to. In addition, it will be much easier to repair your car in case of breakdown.
#2 Take important gadgets, for example a dashboard camera or a GoPro camera, with you. You will definitely want to film your adventures and many interesting places that you will see on your way. A dashboard camera will be also helpful in case of road traffic accident. You will use a video recording as an evidence of your non-culpability.
Back to nature
#3 Nowadays everyone travels with smartphones loaded with GPRS navigation and google maps. But we strongly advise you to take an old-fashioned paper map and a compass. Keep in mind that it is going to be a cross country driving trip.
Therefore, in some areas your cell phone might lose a signal.
