Join the AAA and carry a charged up cell phone.

Only kidding...but those aren't a bad idea on any decent long trip. Check your tires and make sure they are properly inflated. Check your oil and water levels. if you have a decent set of tools, take a few with you plus duct tape. Have a great trip!

pretty much what Crewzin said...

make sure tires are properly inflated, fluids are at correct levels and have a good time!

If you have a CD Player, be sure and take some music. Radio reception varies when yo are on the road.
