Going On The Road Trip Of A Lifetime With Your Buddies

Road trips can be life-changing experiences. Of course, like any vacation or adventure, they have to be planned. You can give the illusion of spontaneity, but if you want to have a good time then you really need to think about planning everything down to the last detail. If you do that then you’ll be able to have a great time with all your closest friends, no matter where you go in the world. You don’t want to be worrying about things after you’ve set off on your journey. Here are some tips to ensure you have the road trip of a lifetime with your buddies.

Plan the transportation.  As mentioned in the introduction above, the plan is crucial. Of course, you might have no idea where to begin with the plan. We did a great review on a book that gives lots of handy tips for the perfect road trip. Transport is obviously one of the most crucial things to organize before anything else. Your road trip won’t be much of a road trip if you can’t even get on the road. You need to have some idea of just how many of your buddies are going to be able to make it on this adventure.

If it’s only going to be a few of you then you’ll either have to use somebody’s car (make the kind offer to switch up the driver throughout the trip to give people a break) or hire a car. Of course, if you’ve invited a lot of your friends then you might want to look into options such as the Texas Charter Bus Company to cart you all around in a group bus; with amenities such as toilets for the long journeys. It’s almost better than a car, in that respect.

Plan the destinations. In any case, no matter how many of you are going on this adventure, it’s a good idea to keep the group together so that you’re all visiting new places as a collective. Also, it ruins the effect of the trip if you’re in different cars and you’re not all sharing it together. The traveling aspect is 90% of the fun of this “vacation”. With regards to planning your destinations themselves, you should have a plan of the places you intend to visit. Road trips with multiple destinations need planning in terms of a timeline so that you don’t spend too long in any single place and end up having to cut out intended destinations from your trip. You don’t want to disappoint anyone.

Allow for flexibility. Roads are temperamental. Traffic, closed off lanes, and problems with weather can all put a dent in the perfect road trip. Have a backup plan for every stage of your journey so that, if you can’t visit a certain place or take a certain route, you have a plan B for the adventure. You don’t want to put a damper on anyone’s spirits by telling them that things have gone wrong and you’ve no other ideas as to what they could do. Keep the vibes strong and minimize the impact of any changes in the plan by offering another good alternative.
