Tune up your body is likely the mantra for runners preparing for the Barbee Derby or one of the other Thanksgiving races around Madison.
The derby is Madison's original Thanksgiving run. All proceeds go to the Technology Education Foundation.
That type of tune-up is great for folks who are planning to stick around Madison but those who plan to hit the road to visit friends and family need to think about getting a car tune-up.
"Driving anywhere in the cold weather and winter months requires special considerations," usatoday.com says.
A little pre-check routine goes a long way to ensuring your road trip is a successful one.
Items that should be checked include:
- the battery
- tire pressure
- fluid levels
- wiper blades
But the checkup should not end there.
Usatoday.com reminds us that before any major winter road trip you should consider taking your vehicle to a mechanic for a thorough checkup of the:
- drive belts
- engine hoses
- transmission, brake, and power steering fluid
And, while we are at it, USA Today offers safety tips:
- Drive slowly.
- Accelerate and decelerate slowly.
- Increase your following distance.
- Pack a small shovel in case you get stuck.
- Once you get where you are going, have fun. Build snowmen and have snowball fights.
