As warm weather approaches, this could be the year when you’ll complete your wandering bucket list you’ve been dreaming about for decades. Put the old family car, yourself and companion into tip-top shape, load up the smartphone with all the necessary map info, as well as audio books, music and other items to make the long stretches more comfy.
