Plan ahead to be earth friendly for Memorial Day weekend

Let’s look forward to next weekend when so many people will start the summer!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s Memorial Day Weekend preparation week. Many people will plan outdoor activities as well as weekend getaways. Start planning today.

If you are thinking of driving away from the area, prepare your vehicle with tire pressure, coolant and fuel checks. Chances are good that our gas prices might be better here than there.

Properly inflated tires increase your mileage; keep your speed in check too. If possible, use cruise control to maintain your speed and avoid spikes on the gas pedal. And when you check the coolant, check the windshield wiper fluid.

Pollen is still swirling around and with a sudden downpour, it may be necessary to wash your windshield. Many people will go to local parks…if you are planning to have a picnic, you can check to see if there is a need to reserve shelter. (I could be far from here, and others were ordering long before this article was in the Gaston Gazette).
