With winter coming, there are a number of emergency supplies you should always have in your vehicle. You never know what type of emergency you might run into, so don't tempt fate by not having what you need on hand. Here is a basic list of the emergency supplies your truck should be equipped with.
1. Road Flares Every truck should be equipped with a set of road flares. Not only can these be used to mark your location in the event of an accident, they can be used to start fires in an emergency, especially in wet or snowy weather.
2. Water No matter what time of year it happens to be, you should always have at least one gallon of potable water stashed away in your truck. If you are planning a longer than normal trip, you should try to find storage space for three gallons.

THE COMPLETELY REDESIGNED 2018 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE IS SURE TO IMPRESS
SUVs continue to grow in popularity and with 40% market share it's clear they have won the vehicle sales race, at least for now. So why the growing popularity, you might ask? Well it could be anything from ride height, to an active lifestyle, to weather related and feeling more confident on the road. I mean, we also can't forget about the flexible and functional nature of an SUV.
As the SUV trend rises, this has encouraged Automakers to up their game with more advanced and innovative technologies bringing you the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. The Traverse has built a solid following over the years, making it one of the top SUV choices among families. But what is especially cool, is that the 2018 Traverse makes for the model's first full redesign since its debut 9 years ago. The Traverse enginee...
On Monday, August 21, 2017, North America will be able to witness a total eclipse of the sun.
If you're lucky enough to be in the Path of Totality, you'll be able to see what eclipse chasers call an "emotional, startling, sensational, and life-changing" event. Eclipse chasers are known as umpraphiles, or shadow lovers.
This is the nation's first total solar eclipse since 1979 and the first to cross from the West Coast to the East Coast since 1918. NASA and the National Park Service advises travelers to stock up on water, snacks, sunscreen -- and your solar eclipse viewing glasses -- before leaving home.
Eclipse Tip: During totality, make sure to spend a few moments enjoying the 360 degree "sunset" all around you.
Here are the best U.S. cities within the eclipse's path of totality to watch the spectacular sky show:
Starts at 9:05 a.m. PDT and totality begins at 10:17...
Texas is a great state to get out and explore. Whether you're listening to the latest podcast or NPR channel, you might just end up wishing you had some great music along for the ride. Music and road trips go hand in hand, and if you're looking for some new tunes, there are many places to find and download music:
There are even more places to find a good song list. But how do you entertain the whole family? Or your best friend who decided to take his or her vacation time, so they could drive with you across the country. Or just Texas.
If you're travelling with your family, show tunes are always a great choice. Most of us can even sing along to some of the old standards:
Summer weather means hot temperatures and the inside of cars get even hotter so remember it is never OK to leave kids or pets in a car -- even with the windows down.
Kids are more susceptible and at higher risk for heat-related illness and injury than adults because their bodies make more heat relative to their size and their abilities to cool through sweating are not as developed as adults.
On a day that is just 72 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature [inside a car] can increase by 30 to 40 degrees in an hour, and 70% of this increase occurs the first 30 minutes. If you suspect your child has heatstroke consult a doctor immediately and provide fluids. Give your child as much cold water as he will drink. Do this until he feels better. If you have a sports drink such as Gatorade, give it ins...
May is National Pet Month. Warm weather can mean more time in the car and on the road with a furry family member. JK Chevrolet has compiled tips to keep in mind when traveling with your pet.
Crate Your Pet Many people feel guilty about crating their animals on a trip, but it's for their own safety. Just make sure the crate is well-ventilated and large enough for them to stand, lie down, and turn around in. You should also ensure that the crate won't shift during sudden maneuvers.
Dogs in cars When driving, there are a few different options for safely transporting pets. Use a dog carrier that is large enough for them to stand and turn around in. Letting your dog roam free in the car without restraint is never a good idea, however some dogs might tolerate a canine seatbelt, which is a harness...
