Labor Day Tips

They say Labor Day is one of the busiest weekends of the year when it comes to being on the road. This might be a good time to think about carpooling so you can not only help cut down on the traffic but you'll also be helping the environment.

If you've got Labor Day plans far away, be sure to plan ahead. Make all reservations far in advance and be sure you leave early to avoid any delays on the road or in the airports. Be sure you've mapped out the trip so that's one less thing you have to worry about when it comes time to leave. Also, use a checklist for items needed to pack. You'll not likely forget anything if you're following a list.

Be sure to keep safety in mind if you plan to be on the water over Labor Day. Remember that, many others plan to be on the water too so always be on the lookout for swimmers and water skiers as well as the jet skiiers. As always, make sure you have the necessary safety equipment with you when boating, especially life jackets.

Labor Day is one of those holidays where Americans like to drink up. Please drink responsibly and NEVER drink and drive. Most importantly, watch out of those irresponsible drinkers that could be deadly to your family. Have a mindset of defensive driving so that you can avoid them on the road as well as on the water.

Labor Day is a good marker for when to start thinking about getting your home ready for the upcoming Winter. You know; things like closing the vents around the base of the home, making sure the windows are caulked and any home crevices insulated, cleaning out the gutters, etc. You could also install a thermostat that's programmable to help keep utility costs down.

Anyone that travels knows that planning for traffic is as important as packing your toothbrush and shampoo. There are great apps on the market for traffic monitoring. Some of our favorites are Beat the Traffic and Sigalert (free last time we checked).
