What do You Need for your Summer Lake Tahoe Vacation



What do you need for your summer Lake Tahoe vacation is a big question you ask yourself as much as you would ask yourself how to enjoy your vacation.

Knowing what to bring along and what to do during your vacation will either spell it whether it be a success or failure, after all, the ideal outcome of a vacation should be that of enjoyment.

But just so you make sure that you get to enjoy your vacation, you need to know what you should be bringing along and plan ahead on what you hope to do.

First things first, unless you are a jetset mulitibillionaire having a home in very possible vacation spot you go to, you culd save more money just by taking advantage of hotel or cabin accommodations.

For your lodging accommodation or hotel room, here are a list of things you may need to have along, condiments, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, coffee (if your hotel does not provide any, but to make sure you can ask ahead), specialty items (portable blender, egg-beater, etc.), napkins and laundry detergent.

Also consider the following as your emergency or contingency items.

Tire chains and knowing how to install them, especially when you are expected to pass by snow-covered roads around Lake Tahoe, bag of sand or salt (for kitty litter), traction mats, snow shovel, snow brush, ice scraper, booster cables, warning devices such as flares or emergency lights, fuel line de-icer (methanol, also called methyl alcohol or methyl hydrate), extra windshield wiper fluid appropriate for sub-freezing temperatures, paper towels, flashlight and a portable flashing light (and extra batteries) and blanket.

If you have enough trunk space to spare, here are additional items you may need to bring along just to make sure you have basically everything you may need to have a worry-free vacation.

Extra clothing, including hat and wind-proof pants, and warm footwear, first aid kit, snack bars or other “emergency” food and water, matches and emergency candles - only use with a window opened to prevent build-up of carbon monoxide, road maps and brightly colored banners or help signs for emergencies.

Also you need to make sure that before you leave for home, it is best to have your home secure and here are some basic tips on what to do.

Leave your trip itinerary, contact info, spare house and car key with your neighbor or a relative to make sure that they are aware that nobody is inside the house and they could check up on it from time to time.

Arrange for your mail and newspapers to be picked up, since you may need to have somebody receive your mail or newspaper for you when you are not around.

Make sure to turn off gas lights and water to prevent accidents, lock all windows and doors, arrange for pet care and water all the plants before leaving

When traveling with children, also make sure to allow for extra travel time and be flexible - plan to make frequent stops, bring water and snacks, have wipes or a towel handy in car for messes and spills, ensure that car seat is properly installed, bring toys and games.

Another good way to keep your kids excited about the vacation is by showing them pictures of where you are all going to, so that they have something to look forward to during the length of the trip.

So, what do you need for your summer Lake Tahoe vacation and how you can best address it will ensure that you have a wonderful vacation.
