Take Your Family on This Epic Road Trip

 

epic road trip

Road trips are a great way to bond as a family while seeing new things and having great adventures. If you have ever wanted to visit every state, Chevrolet and data scientist Randy Olson have put together an epic road trip that will take you through the 48 contiguous United States.

This trip makes one stop in each state and spans 13,389 miles. If you followed the map from end to end, you would spend 214.56 hours on the road (about nine days), which doesn’t even include time for overnight stops or any visiting time.

“This map is designed so road trippers can start anywhere and drive as much or as little as they like,” said Olson. “Across the U.S., people can create their perfect route, whether staying close to home or embarking on a once-in-a-lifetime 48-state journey.”

You can begin the journey at any point on the map. The stop in California is right in our backyard at Disneyland. If we were going to take part of this journey, we would head east to see The Grand Canyon, visit the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Or you could head north and stop at the National Automobile Museum in Reno, catch the spectacular Crater Lake National Park, and visit the iconic Pike Place Market in Seattle.

Whichever way you choose to go, come in to DeLillo Chevrolet. We’ll help make sure your car is ready for a long drive, or help you find a vehicle more up to the task.

Dash Cam

Accidents happen, and a dash cam can help prevent your loved one from getting their insurance claim denied. The price of dash cams have dropped quite a bit in recent years, and good ones are available for under $100. A simple 30-second video can make the difference between a full insurance-covered repair and a denied claim.

Auto Care Supplies

There’s never a bad time to wash your car in Huntington Beach, unless it’s raining, of course. That makes auto care supplies, like car soap and wax, a great gift. Throw in a few microfiber towels and a specialized nozzle for washing cars to make your gift a car wash in a box!

Driving Loafers

A nice pair of driving loafers offers your car lover the chance to be even more comfortable behind the wheel. Cruising down open highways or making a casual drive through the city is best done in complete comfort, after all. Plus, driving loafers look pretty stylish, making them ideal even after parking the car.

Helpful Tips As You Prepare for Thanksgiving

Helpful Tips As You Prepare for Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and while the holiday is meant to be a slow-paced, family-filled time to reflect on what you are grateful for, the reality is that you will be running around like a chicken—or turkey—with its head chopped off. Here are some easy tips to help you prepare for Thanksgiving.

  • Start thawing, early.

    Buy your turkey in advance and stick it in your freezer. Doing so will ensure you get the plump bird of your Thanksgiving dreams and don’t end up leaving the supermarket emptyhanded on November 22nd. But if you are freezing it, you will need to allow plenty of time to thaw. When completely frozen, a turkey will need a day to thaw for every four pounds.

  • Make a schedule and assign jobs.

    Stay organized. Draw up a cooking and entertaining schedule, and give everyone in your family jobs. Ask Aunt Karen to bring the mashed potatoes, and make sure your spouse knows his or her job is to help and not just watch football.

  • Try to enjoy the day.

    After all your hard work of cleaning and cooking, take some time to enjoy the food and relax with a drink and your family.
