You know how you can just feel the fall coming? Even when it's still warm, and you're sure summer will never leave you... and then slowly, those blue-sky early-September days give just a hint of what's to come. There's a subtle breeze and all of a sudden it's time to get outside and feel that autumn euphoria. Of course, around here the only way to celebrate the change of season is with a road trip! Windows down drives to find a place where the mountain air gives you that little shiver of excitement for cooler weather.
This list is all the necessities to build your own road trip car care kit (right in time for those steep mountain drives and hilly terrains you'll experience on those upcoming fall travels!) Plus, as a girl who travels with her touring musician partner often, I've got a special concert giveaway at the close of the post! (hint, hint, my favorite music video ever is November Rain... can you guess what the giveaway is?!)
Read on for more, and at the close of the post learn all about why Pennzoil is my oil of choice.

The fabulous thing about this list, truly truly, you guys - is that it's all available for online ordering. We get our cars serviced at our local Walmart, and they've made serious improvements in their online shopping experience lately. Pickup options now include (1) delivery, (2) in-store pickup and (3) curbside pickup. I, for one, NEVER ever want to go brave the checkout line, so ordering online is my go-to. On those days I realize I forgot that one thing that I just can't travel without I chose the curb-side assistance. You just provide your name and the time you'll be there to pick it up, and a Walmart employee will bring your items to you. 🙌🏽

More about Pennzoil:
Pennzoil High Mileage – This is what we choose for Ben's SUV, it's for vehicles with 75K+ miles (and we put tons of miles on that car). We also buy the Pennzoil Platinum Full Synthetic High Mileage for my car (it's just approaching the 75k mark. This product includes a revolutionary process that converts natural gas into pure synthetic base oil. Combining it with high performance additives means it's proven to deliver less oil burn off than conventional motor oils made from crude oil (and that's important to me!). It keeps pistons up to 20% cleaner than the toughest industry standards to help keep the engines running clean and performing strong. These oils are made with the mission of keeping engines running clean and going strong.
Okay! Now about that contest!
You'll also receive $10 Ticketmaster Ticket Cash with the purchase any 2 qualifying Pennzoil Motor oil (in-store or online) by uploading your receipt.
