We're heading on a road trip this weekend. April always brings unpredictable, all over-the spectrum weather here. We're traveling through a snowbelt on this trip, and the forecast is for rain or snow, so two things are at the top of the list today:

1. Vehicle Maintenance - topping up all the fluids, oil change, etc.... and the annual debate with my husband about whether or not to take off the snow tires just yet. He's always done it on Easter weekend and I've always done it at the end of May, and every year we argue about it. wink

2. People Maintenance - making sure us humans are ready for an out of town emergency or stranding. Packing overnight bags (a.k.a. BOBs), winter outerwear, entertainment for the kids, reading materials hubby and I, important IDs/health cards, etc...

Nice list! I love the dollar store and second-hand stores. So many budget-friendly treasures to fill a pack, medicine cabinet, pantry, tool shed...
