Canadian Top Ten Road-Trip Tips
Charlie Blue Jacobson truly is a man who is at one with his suitcase. He travels from east to west every month via car, van or airplane, through timezones and seasons. They say “A rolling stone gathers no moss,” and that is surely the case with the mossless Charlie. He is constantly coming up with new ideas, jotting things down, answering the phone, walking and chewing gum at the same time (well he could if he wanted to). This constant state of motion has given him some Canadian travelling tips he would like to share:
Charlie’s Canadian Top 10 Road-Trip Tips:
- Never take anything out of the car – You’re only setting yourself up to forget something
- Pack a sleeping bag with you at all times
- Yoga mat.
- Don’t wear your cowboy boots when you’re driving; that’s really bad for you
- Always have a compass with you, in case you come out of a rest stop and you don’t know which way you’re going
- Bring your tapes with you, or whatever you got
- Plan to arrive 3 hours before you have to be somewhere, especially if the drive is over 12 hours long
- Don’t drink the tap water, bring a water filter. You don’t know what you’re gonna get.
- Picking up hitchhikers is not a good idea if you are on a deadline. They have their own personal agendas.
- Bring a screwdriver, in case you lose your door handle, and need to break into your own car on a regular basis.
