Planning a Florida Vacation?

HOUSE SECURITY

  • Leave the blinds open
  • Have newspapers picked up
  • Make sure the grass is cut, or snow shoveled
  • Have the lights on timers
  • Arrange to have a neighbour's car left in the driveway
  • Arrange for someone to do security checks
RV/CAR SECURITY
  • Always travel with doors locked, even when parked
  • Don't stop at rest stops after hours (truck stops should be okay)
  • Don't disclose your travel plans to strangers
DESTINATIONS
  • Check the International Campground Directory
  • For State phone numbers call 1-800-555-1212
PLANNING THE ROUTE
  • Your atlas should include counties and exit numbers (e.g.. Wal-Mart McNally Atlas)
  • Mountain directories are a must if traveling in the mountains
  • KOA directories list all parks with cabins for rent
  • For online planning, use freetrips.com or randmcnally.com
CELL PHONE
  • Be sure to have a cell phone, or CB, for emergency use
  • Analog phones generally have better area coverage
  • "Phone-in-a-bag" has more signal power to travel a greater distance
  • Check with your carrier about double long distance charges and roaming fees
EMERGENCY ROAD SERVICE
  • Do not travel without it
  • Make sure it includes contents insurance
BREAKDOWN PROCEDURES
  • Display a sign or a white flag
  • Honk the horn 3 times, repeatedly, and turn on the flashing lights to attract attention to the fact that you need help
  • Stay in your vehicle, keep the doors locked and the windows slightly open
  • Only leave the vehicle to talk to Police, not strangers
