How Do You Prep For A Road Trip?S

Spring is here and road trip season is about to begin. How do you get ready?

The first step I take in prepping for a road trip is to buy all of my firends booze. Regularly and plentifully. This places them in my personal debt, so that when I say, "hey, why don't we drive to Memphis tonight?" they feel compelled to go along with me.

What do you do, both for your car and for your fellow drivers to shirk the binds of winter motoring and re-enter that wonderful space/time warp called the road trip?
