Road trips are very interesting and they often lead to discovering new places and scenery, seeing roads endlessly going through the unknown lands of your country is simply amazing. We hit the roads pretty often and i would like to share with you some of the tips and tricks with which you can make your experience a lot better.

1) SELECTING CAR - When you are selecting the car for your road trip, i know there is not much choice but to take your house car. Well the ideal car for road trips are SUV's as they have better grip, bigger room space for you to relax, spaces in the back to take all your necessary belongings. Due to the bigger tire base of the SUV's they tend to stick to the road pretty well. The engines of any standard SUV is optimized to run for a long period of time and are far more reliable. RANGE ROVERS or LAND ROVERS are some of the SUV's used by professional adventure groups and are often broadcasted in th discovery channel. Well if for any reason you don't get a SUV then please don't panic you can use Sedans and hatchbacks as well but make sure you carry extra tires, mobil and give your car some rest periodically after driving 4-5 hours.

2)MAKE YOUR BAG PACK - It is very important that all members of the road trip should carry their own bag pack. Your ideal bag should not be something as big as a ruck sack but should be of a size that makes you comfortable to carry it around. But a toilet bag and take your brush toothpaste, important medications, some first  aid stuff like band-aid, savlon, anti-septic cream etc. the other important thing that goes in your bag pack is a pair of clothes just in case you need it, some shots so that you can wear them when you wanna make yourself comfortable in the car and a bottle of water. Make sure your bag pack has these key items and the rest is up to you. For Example i take my camcorder, camera i pod, and my fried pal takes his laptop so we are pretty much connected to the world even when we are in the middle of the unknown.

3)RESEARCH AND PLAN - Last but no into the least plan your road trip beforehand. I know its cool when you see in the movies that people just takes off for a journey but trust me its not that simple and without effective planning you can get into a lot of trouble. Search the web, search google maps and find places to eat and halt beforehand and calculate the journey time, when to start etc. If you are going without a driver then make sure all of you takes turns and drive , a 100km each person.

mostly drive cautiously as highway driving may look easy but is a lot difficult. We the members of ADVENTURE ASSASSINS promise you that if you follow these tips you will have a smooth and pleasant journey.
