As the COVID-19 virus starts ease in Australia, many of you are eager to get out and about again. We have put together this blog with helping you get ready for a road trip when the virus lockdown is lifted.
As the world is dealing with this Covid -19 virus, Australia has been lucky to be an Island nation. Actually we are a huge Island nation.
Australia is ¾ the size of North America with only 26 million people compared to America`s 300 million, So we have vast distance with miles & miles of road.
Travel Restrictions Easing
As I write this blog The Federal Government is starting to ease travel restrictions.
Which means a bit of freedom at last, while the Aviation industry is still grounded,
People will start getting into their cars & go for a road trip. Anything to get out & get some fresh air.
But with any destination a bit of planning at the beginning will go a long way for an enjoyable trip.
Road Trip Checklist
First – How far is the trip?
How far do you want to travel and what type of roads and terrain will you be driving on and in?
100km, 200km, 1000km, 2000km or possibly over 5000km.
Second – Is your car up to the challenge & load required for such a trip?
Example – I cringe when I see people go on a long road trip with a 18 year old car with over 250 000km with no accurate service history.
Simply the car is old, Yet for a turbo diesel Toyota Landcruiser, this is nothing.
What you really need is a accurate assessment of your vehicle for the trip ahead.
