The Easy and Smart Way To Plan For A Road Trip

We love road trips! Just this year we have been on several including our trip to Louisiana for my daughter’s softball All Star games and then we took a road trip to Port Aransas ans Corpus Christi.  Family road trips are great but sometimes I just want to get away with my wife. Just the two of us. So I have a fun road trip planned to celebrate our anniversary.

You see, our anniversary was the week that Harvey hit Houston. We had a nice staycation  planned but Harvey changed all that. So we went back to the planning stages to decide what to do. This time we decided we needed to get away! 

Road trips require a lot of planning. But the thing is, they don’t have to be stressful. I am not a planner. My wife is the planner. I am also not the kind that likes to spend lots of time shopping in the store. I know what I want and I love shopping online. So I turned to Walmart for all the things I knew I wanted to get to prepare for our trip. Ordering online at Walmart.com helps me avoid the crowd and save so much time.

One thing that might surprise you is that you can purchase things for your car online as well. I knew my truck needed to be cared for before we got out on the open road. One thing that was very important was getting Pennzoil® High Mileage motor oil for the truck. Did you know that you can save money by buying your motor oil online?

Pennzoil® High Mileage motor oil helps clean out the sludge lesser oils leave behind, while helping to reduce leaks and oil consumption in worn or higher mileage engines. Pennzoil® High Mileage motor oil is a Pennzoil conventional motor oil that has been enhanced with a unique combination of special conditioning agents and additives to help stop leaks from seals and reduce the oil consumption that is typical of older, worn engines. It’s a motor oil specifically designed for new or late model vehicles with over 75,000 miles, with the mission of keeping engines running clean and going strong. That makes it perfect for my truck!

 

Shopping online is so easy. Search, Find, Add To Cart, and Check Out! Then you have a few options as to how you want to get your items. Walmart has made significant improvements in their online shopping experience lately, and pickup options now include (1) delivery, (2) in-store pickup and (3) curbside pickup. It’s all about convenience for you! Which I love.

A few things you might consider buying for your romantic vacation:

  • Pennzoil® High Mileage motor oil- So the car/truck will be running smoothly
  • A book for her
  • A coffee cup for her
  • A neck pillow
  • Candy or Snacks
  • Tire Guage

You can find all of these items and even more online. Ordering was easy and fast and I received the items at my door in just a couple of days.

OH and if you choose to purchase your motor oil on Walmart.com check out this Gun’s N Roses Online offer:

  • Receive $10 Ticketmaster Ticket Cash with Purchase- Just purchase any 2 qualifying Pennzoil Motor oil (in-store or online) & upload your receipt
  • All entrants will also be entered into a sweepstakes to win tickets to a Guns N’ Roses concert as part of their “Not In This Lifetime” tour!

For more about Pennzoil, follow along on their social channels: TwitterFacebook, and YouTube.

Now that I have all the things to make the wife happy and some things to make my truck ready for the trip, I feel like we are ready to go! What would you get for your romantic road trip? How do you prepare for your road trips? Any tips you would like to share, please comment below.
