Are you concerned about flying this year?

Driving to Montana from within the United States is a great way to enrich your vacation.

Many of the routes here are incredibly scenic, there is less traffic on the road these days, and it is generally less expensive (especially now with low fuel prices).

Depending on where you’re coming from, it may be a day trip, or you may have a few days to enjoy the views.

Here are some things to consider when hitting the road:

  • Bring a decent sized cooler stocked with meals, snacks and drinks
  • Bring a pad and pen and consider journaling your venture
  • Ensure your AAA subscription is valid for the length of your trip
  • Check your vehicle’s fluids and tire pressure
  • Update your GPS with the latest maps (bring a printed map as backup)
  • Portable fold-up toilets with disposable, biodegradable bags are not expensive (you never know)
  • Keep hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes in your vehicle cabin
  • Keep your camera unpacked and handy

Driving can be a relaxed and peaceful way to travel – no lineups, go at your own pace, and enjoy the sterile atmosphere of your own vehicle.

And if you choose to stay at Smoky Bear Ranch, you can also enjoy a good night’s sleep in ultra clean accommodations, in a remote forested setting away from the traffic, trains and crowds.
