Here’s How You Organise Everything for your Next Road Trip

Going away for a road trip can be a very exciting experience and you would be surprised at how easy it is for you to get everything organised. The problem that a lot of people have is they have no idea what they need to pack and they also have no idea how they are going to fit everything they need into their car either. If you want to avoid all of this then you can find out some helpful hints and tips below.

Space Bags

Space Bags are ideal if you are going away on a road trip. The main reason for this is because they give you the chance to pack down any clothing items with ease. All you have to do is put them in the plastic bag and then vacuum all of the air out. This will really make the whole thing way easier for you and it will also mean that you have way more space as well. You also need to make sure that you don’t focus on the boot space that you have, for example, your car is full of nooks and crannies, and these are great if you want to pack certain items. Try and put your shoes under the seat rather than taking up space in the boot, and put any snacks behind the seats so they can be accessed by the people in the back.

Plastic Tubs are Great

Instead of putting every bottle of shampoo, conditioner, soap and more in a bag and trying to slot your clothes in around them, try and use a plastic box instead. Plastic boxes provide you with a way higher level of organisation and they also make it way easier for you to access your items as well. You can even stack your boxes on top of one another as well, and this will give you way more space in the car when compared to carrier bags or other holdalls. Ratchet straps are great if you want to keep everything secure in the back of a truck or anything else similar, but it helps to know how to loosen ratchet straps before you get everything loaded.

The 7 Day Rule

If you are going on a road trip for 7 days then it’s super important that you pack a bag that will help you to go for this length of time. A lot of people make the mistake of packing way more clothes than they need, and this can cause a ton of issues when the time comes to load the car. If you want to avoid this, then just pack 5 of everything, with 7 pairs of socks. After all, you can easily wear the same t-shirt for more than 2 days in a row, and this will really help to save space if everyone who is taking the trip does it.

So it is very easy for you to really get a good result out of your road trip, and by taking the time to organise your belongings, you can save yourself both time and money.

Some Ways To Find The Classic Car Of Your Dreams

Nothing beats the idea of the classic, especially when it comes to cars. However, it’s extremely hard to find such a commodity in a world obsessed with bringing out a ‘new and updated’ model from every car brand every single year. And yet, vintage is something people pay a lot of money for, and hundreds to thousands attend conventions and shows to see the hints of vintage in the vehicles we only ever seem to see on the TV every year.

Sure, your love for a car from yesteryear can be expensive, but it’s worth it if you’re a collector looking to pad out your previous investments, or simply to enjoy the culture of them. But even attending all the shows and scouting out the used car dealerships can turn you up empty-handed, so what do you have to do to find the classic car of your dreams?


You Have to Take a Chance

Taking a chance is something a lot of people don’t like to do; it’s risky, and you could lose a lot of money. When something so valuable is on the line, you want to be assured, and always feel like you’re the one in control. However, sometimes you absolutely have to be able to let go, and take a chance on a model that might not be in the condition you want, or on a dealer you’re not sure the reputation of.

Of course, the latter option can be resolved with a lot of research, but the former is something a lot of people turn their nose up at. Stop yourself right now if you’re doing that. It’s not going to help you get your hands on the car you’ve always wanted, and it will mean you finally get to say you own a 60s Camaro or even a Cadillac. Isn’t that worth it?

You Have to Look Far Afield

Especially in other countries, even if that’s right out of your budget. Because if you know someone across the pond has the car you’ve been looking for, for a long time, now you’re going to have a much more concrete goal in mind. For example, you can start saving up for shipping a car over from the USA. Or you can simply try and arrange a trip to go and see the model in question, and practice your negotiation skills on its current owner.

As a general rule however, this is a good thing to keep in mind. There’s always going to be more opportunities outside of the pool you’ve allowed yourself to look into, and you should never restrict yourself to just a few sources for finding a vintage car. Classic cars are in short supply these days by definition, so increasing your availability is going to turn up much better results.

Finding the classic car you’ve always wanted to get your hands on will take time and effort, don’t underestimate that. But you can increase your chances by being smart about your search.
