Traveling with boyfriend or girlfriend can be a really fun trip or it can end up being the worst trip ever. I've been on disaster trips and i've been on amazing trips, but sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to pack when you go on a road trip. That's why I'm coming up with some of my favorite tips for packing, because I know it can be a hassle when you don't know what to pack and here are some of my tips and hopefully i can help you!

Packing Tip #1: Pack for the weather you are going to!
I will always look at the weather ahead of time just to get a feel of how warm or cold it will be. If I'm coming from a cold state and going to a really hot state like southern cali, then I would suggest just going in the cold weather clothing, then pack for summer clothing. If I go on a weekend trip to southern cali, then I would just pack 2 summer dresses, 2 tank tops, a pair of shorts, 1 swimsuit and 2 sandals/sneakers. For my boyfriend when he goes on a weekend trip, he will just pack 3 tshirts and 2 pairs of shorts and a swimsuit. So you really don't need a big suitcase for it. For a longer vacation, we usually will pack a bunch more, but still not too much, because you will be able to get away with wearing the same thing twice. I just pack lightly and will wear the same clothes a couple times, and hey! Hotels will have a place to wash them too, so you can wash your clothing too!

Packing Tip #2: Get your gadgets powered
When I am going on a road trip, I always make sure that I have my batteries with me, especially my cell phone since I usually use that as a GPS, so always have a charger for your cell phone or power outlet for your computer.

Packing Tip #3: First Aid Kit
I will always have a first aid kit or just a plastic baggy with everything you need in it. Just like you got to make sure your car is safe, always make sure you body is safe on the road this winter with any type of first aid kit you have!

Packing Tip #4: Always, Always have snacks on the road
Whenever I'm going on road trips, I always need some kind of pick me up or else I'll just be sleepy on the road and that's no fun to do. So, I will get snacks, protein shakes, chocolate and just a couple things that you love to eat. You're going on a road trip, so eat what you want and have a fun time doing it.

Packing Tip #5: Get your car serviced before your road trip
When you are going on a road trip, you should always make sure your car is properly checked before road trips. You do not want your car to break down when you are on your way somewhere with your hubby or boyfriend and in the middle of no where. I've had it happen before, but luckily it was in the summer so it wasn't freezing, but driving during the winter will be brutal and if your car breaks down, you will freeze your tail off fixing whatever happened. So, after that experience it made me go a couple days before I went on my road trip to check it out.

Oil changes in every car in the world is a very important thing to keep doing. I learned a long time ago on how you should always maintain your car, I have had exotic type of cars and those cars are a pain and you always need to check them out, but every car needs to be check out when you get a oil change. Sometime you have to buy expensive and cars are expensive to, so paying just a little bit extra will save you and your car in the future. Thats why, Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic motor oil with PurePlus™ Technology will actually keep your vehicle’s pistons up to 20% cleaner and keep your engine cleaner too. Also, full synthetic oil performs better in extreme hot and cold temperatures.

I'm always going on a road trip maybe 2-4 times a month and I always stop by Walmart to get my oil changed or my boyfriends car's too. Walmart Automotive Center's are everywhere in the U.S., the good thing for you is you drop off your car and then go shopping and your car will probably be finished in time to go home. When I went to go get my oil change, the Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic was on Rollback ($49.88 Rollback to $44.88).
Now you know how to pack and take care of your car, make sure to get your vehicle checked as soon as possible! Did you know that, Walmart Automotive Care Centers in the following states and you can get the Pennzoil® Platinum Full Synthetic on Rollback ($49.88 Rollback to $44.88) through December 27, 2016 in these states:
  • Florida
  • Georgia 
  • South Carolina
