Are You Ready For The Ultimate Road Trip Adventure?

We’ve all thought about packing our things up in the car and taking off on an adventure at one stage or another. But while the thought of an impromptu weekend away may sound perfect, an organized trip will almost certainly take things to the next level.

 

You’ve saved up your money. You’ve taken two weeks off work. And now you’re ready to put the wheels in motion for what could be the trip of a lifetime. What are you waiting for?

Preparing Your Transport

 

Arguably the best thing about taking an epic road trip is that you can marry your love of a great vacation with your love of driving. However, it’s imperative that your vehicle is prepared for the long drives ahead. Not least because you will be entering unfamiliar territories.   

 

In addition to checking the car’s health, it’s often worth investing in a Sat Nav and a dash cam. If you plan to travel with the whole family, keeping kids occupied with an in-car DVD can have a huge impact too. There’s more to a road trip than driving alone, but this is a crucial element. Get it right, and you’re already halfway to enjoying the perfect vacation.   

 

Plan, But Leave Room For Flexibility

 

Your road trip allows you to visit multiple places in a very short space of time. So if you’re going to utilize your time effectively, planning ahead is a crucial element. Otherwise, you could waste valuable time deciding on attractions to visit. Besides, there’s nothing quite as frustrating as missing a great opportunity through poor preparation.   

 

On the other hand, you never know when you might suddenly see an event that wasn’t promoted. Alternatively, you may get a chance to buy tickets to a big sporting event or music gig. Find the right balance between following a schedule and being spontaneous, and you will not go wrong.

Pre-Book Accommodation

 

Throughout your journey, there may be times when a quick night stop in the motel will suffice. Likewise, many adventurers love the thought of sleeping under the stars and camping for at least some of the trip. Nevertheless, you will need a sense of comfort.

 

Just because you are on a road trip, it doesn’t mean you can’t spend a few days in one location. Cabin rentals are a great way to enjoy a short stay in luxury while having a great place to enjoy some family adventure before hitting the road once more. Moreover, a good night’s sleep will work wonders for the driver. If nothing else, having these elements in place will help you stick to the basic itinerary.

 

Be Prepared For Activities

 

Whether you’re traveling by car or RV, you should have ample space for packing key items. In addition to clothes and essentials, you should pack footwear designed for treks and other adventures. This one tip will open up a whole world of new adventures.

 

Specialist equipment for activities like rafting will be provided on site, so that isn’t a problem. As long as you pack torches, spare cell phones, and other key items, you’ll have nothing to fear. Above all else, the confidence gained from being prepared will allow you to seek far more enjoyment too. So strap in, the trip of a lifetime awaits.

Money For Nothing

It is litigious age, just as it has always been. But today, we’re facing more lawsuits than ever before – and especially in the United States, where – get this – 70% of the world’s lawyers live. SEVENTY PERCENT! To put that into some context, America only has 5% of the world’s population (It also has 25% of the world’s prison population! Every day is a school day…). In this article, we’ll take a look at some of the most comical and ridiculous lawsuits of years gone by, and also highlight some of the surprising ways you yourself can be sued if you’re not too careful (or horribly unlucky!)

Don’t Pay Attention, Get Rich

 

This will either make your blood boil or, if you’re prone to absent-mindedness, make you exciting at the prospect of future revenue. There is a woman out there (I don’t know what to be sued, so won’t mention names), who lives in Georgia, who walked into a ladder as she was sending a text, got injured, and then sued the company responsible for the ladder for $175,000. She didn’t get everything she wanted…just $161,000! Apparently, having your head in your phone and not looking to see the clearly marked signs saying “there is work happening here” is enough to bring a big pay day!

 

Trying to Make Money, Lose Money

 

There’s another case, one of a postman who is delivering an invoice to a person at their home. He trips up over a curb in the front garden of the person’s house. He’s mildly injured. But he’s able to sue. You know why? Because in his hand was a business document, and because the homeowner didn’t have home business insurance, wasn’t covered for the injuries. The man has to pay out of his own pocket, for a postman tripping up. Let that sink in.

 

Keeping You Alert

 

Remember the ridiculous lawsuit from a few decades back, the one about a woman suing McDonald’s because she spilled hot coffee on herself? Well, those type of things never really go away (she won, after all!). Last year it was Starbucks’ time to feel the heat of their coffee, because they were subject to two “I can’t believe it” lawsuits. The first one said…something…about their being too much steamed milk in their latte (the complaint is unclear). The other was a lawsuit to do with – get this – Starbucks putting too much ice…in their iced coffee. A victory for the little guy against an evil corporation, or another example of a legal system that has too much money (and time!).

 

Printing Money

Some people just want to watch the world burn. I’m not going to type his name, because by all accounts he is a serial abuser of the courts system. Anyway, this man sued a person he had bought a printer from off Craigslist several years prior for… $30,000. It’s apparently because the printer broke down and the seller was in breach of contract. For the record: the printer cost $40…six years ago. Even if he loses, the guy he has sued has already paid $12,000 in legal fees!

Get Your Business Premises Looking Good And Running Well

The place you run your business out of needs to be a great place for you, your employees and any customers that may go there too. It isn’t an easy to get your place of work whipped into shape and looking good, it takes some businesses years to get it all right whereas others do it right off the bat. It can cost money, and a good deal of perseverance, but it isn’t as hard as you think. Here are a few great tips so that you can keep your premises looking good and running smoothly.

 

Ensure Your Workforce Know What They Are Doing

 

A business premises can be cast into an awful mess if those working there do not adhere to rules or don’t know how to operate certain machinery. This is double the case in businesses which use heavy machinery like engineering plants or food production plants. As such you should ensure your employees are trained to a high standard. You can do this by training them yourself or using online safety training. If they are in the know they will work far better and be more productive. Your premises will surely benefit from this too, as there will be no scenes of chaos as your whole workforce will know what they are doing and will appear professional.

Use A Great Break Room

 

To keep your guys working well and as a result your premises running in a good fashion you need to use a top break room. By using a good break room you can give your employees somewhere to truly relax. If they can actually relax then they will recharge and come back to work feeling refreshed, ready to continue at a high level. If they don’t recharge, then their level will slowly drop, leading to a drop in productivity. Make sure you have the right amenities on offer like microwaves, ovens, a TV and comfy chairs. You should also design the break room so it looks different to that of the working environment. This way they can properly separate the two in their brain, allowing them to get a break without thinking about work.

 

Keep It Sleek For Client Visits

 

If you own the kind of business where it is likely someone will visit you at your premises then you need to ensure it looks good. A waiting room is the best option, complete with water, plush chairs and good decoration. A client will want to see how you operate but also what your standard are like. If they are lax then you could end up losing out on a deal. Your premises are a reflection on how you run your business, so try to keep it looking good at all times.

 

Clean It

 

Even if you have to employ contract cleaners to do the job for you overnight, you should try your best to keep it clean at all times. It gives your employees a better place to work in but it also ensures it looks better for those all important visits. If you operate machinery then you may want to consider hiring a specific cleaning firm who know how to clean those objects.

The Feel Good File

Sometimes it can be really tough to get out of a slump. You may feel down, ill even, and it can affect other kinds of your life too. If you aren’t feeling your best then it can hurt your work life, decreasing your productivity and chances of progression and even your home life because you could take this mood out on your family and spark arguments. There are ways you can help yourself feel better, and increase your outlook on life. These tips can get you started.

 

Get Your Teeth Fixed

 

For some people a smile is everything. Without a good smile your confidence could be affected. Why not get to a dentist and get it fixed? When you have a better smile and have sorted out whatever problem you have you’ll be able to do things with a sense of pride and confidence. It can do wonders in getting you out of your slump and for many people concerned about their appearance can completely fix any issues they have. Simply knowing you have a great killer smile can make that key difference to your life.

Kick The Habit

 

Sometimes a downturn in mood can be turned around by stopping something that could be damaging you, such as smoking. Quitting can help your health, allowing you to breathe more freely and stopping any serious issues down the line. It can also save you money, as cigarettes are more expensive than ever. The same can be said of other addictions like alcohol or drugs. All are bad for your health and if you quit it can do wonders for your social life and even family life. There are many programmes out there that can help you quit whatever addiction you have, it can be a tough road, but certainly a rewarding one if you end up conquering the addiction.

 

Lose Some Weight

 

Another way of getting that feel good factor is by losing weight. Try joining a sports team which can help your social life too. If you like working alone then start swimming, cycling, running or even walking. Exercise is the best way to lose weight and it can get you out and about. Diet also helps, if you start eating better you’ll notice you feel better too, you’ll have more energy and a willingness to do more. When you start to see the pounds drop off there will be a sense of pride, and you will look much better too, giving a huge boost in confidence.

 

Increase Your Water Consumption
To give yourself an easy yet still effective boost then try drinking more water. Again, your energy levels will spike and you will end up feeling much better. Your brain will work harder and you’ll notice yourself getting tired less. It has other benefits too, your skin will start to look better, and the constant drinking of water will flush out the toxins in your body. It can also increase your metabolism, helping you in the losing of weight.
