Summer Trip in Your MINI

 Summer Trip in Your MINI

The following article contains a list of items that you should do before setting off on a road trip in your MINI car.

The most important thing would be to have your MINI inspected at an auto repair center so that you do not have any bad surprises such as getting stuck out in the middle of nowhere.

Check to see if you have everything necessary in the car, such as first aid kit, a basic tool kit, spare tire, jack, water, phone/tablet chargers, and some non-perishable granola bars (or something else of the sort).

Keep these items in your glove-box: a proof of insurance, registration, and other important documents. You should also have your owner’s manual and roadside assistance information with you when setting off on a road trip adventure.

Part of the adventure is stopping at random points and trying new restaurants and diners; however, if you will not be doing this, then make sure you pack a cooler of food. If you will, though, emergency granola bars will be plenty to bring with you in terms of food. Of course, if you are traveling with children, make sure to have sandwiches and snacks for them, and maybe some juice boxes. Pack some entertainment for them as well - otherwise they stand to be quite bored if they do not enjoy watching the drive.

I wish you a great and exciting road trip filled with wonderful memories!

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.

Ford has a strong and steady relationship with area school districts which are part of the company’s Next Generation Learning initiative. Launched in 2006, that initiative provides mentoring, technical support, coaching, and financial support to 20 communities around the country.

Child safety in the vehicle

We all know that child car safety is quite simple, provided that you follow a couple of simple steps. The first thing you need to do is to fit child restraints correctly and make sure you always buckle your kids into them correctly. In addition, it's equally important to seat your kids appropriately so that you can avoid any fighting between them and keep them happy while on the road.

Child Restraint Basics
The first item related to child car safety that we're going to look into is the child restraint. It's an absolute must for children aged up to 7 years to travel in a child restraint. You must remember to always choose, properly fit, and use the right child restraint suitable for your child's age and size. Once your kid's shoulders reach higher than the upper shoulder height marker seen on child restraints, your kid will be ready to move to a bigger child restraint.
