Okay, weekend warriors, it’s time to hit the road and have a reunion with Mother Nature. Listen to the hum of cicadas, watch for falling stars, dip your feet in a cold stream… you know, experience life outside the four walls. Because we like you, and because we’re expert road-trippers, we’re going to share some tips with you for making the most of your next roadventure.
RULE #1 Take the road less travelled to see where it leads
If you stay on the interstate, you’ll miss one of the best parts about road trips: discovering new places. Get off the beaten path and try something new. Note: This may involve dirt roads and ATVs. Plan accordingly.
RULE #2 Pack snacks
Road trip food is like movie popcorn; it’s just part of the experience. Don’t be one of those suckers who rely on convenience store food, though. You’ll pay out the nose just because you can buy gas in the same location. Plan ahead. Stop by the grocery store before you leave town and buy more reasonably priced snacks. Keep them cool in a Bison SoftPak you fit behind the passenger seat or in the sidecar of your motorcycle. Don’t forget the ice.
RULE #3 Hug the curves
Windy roads lead to great places. Don’t be afraid to hug the curves. With Bison’s new GEN2 tumblers, the leakproof lids will keep your beverage from creeping over the side on those turns. Remember: it’s not just about the destination, but it’s also about the way you drive to get there.
RULE #4 Eat at the highest point
Don’t settle for a fast food dinner just because you’re on a road trip. Take your snack game to the next level by packing a full-fledged meal in the Bison and finding the highest point of your journey to eat it. (Chances are the highest point will have the best view.) Even better if you time it so it’s at sunset and you packed some craft beer. Note: Take a hauler with you in case the highest point is a bit of a hike.
