The weather is finally starting to cool down and fall is right around the corner. What does that mean for you and your truck? Hopefully, it means you’re about to be outdoors a lot more often.
Fall is more than a season for spooks and specters; it’s a season celebrating the harvest. And what better way to celebrate it than by harvesting all the opportunities you have to be out in the great outdoors?
Here are some outdoor adventures to take yourself, your family, and your truck this fall to make the most out of this colorful season.
Break out the kayaks and head out on the water
Kayaking isn’t only for the summer months. In fact, fall is considered peak season for kayaking because it offers some of the best paddling experiences.
During the fall, you can enjoy being out on the water without the crowds and bugs. What’s more, water temperatures are still warm enough to paddle on and the air is cool enough to keep you from sweating through your safety gear.
Get your blood pumping while taking in the scenery
Sure, a good truck drive through the countryside is nice during the fall, but it doesn’t give you the exercise you need. Slide on a pair of your hiking boots and head out on the trails to take in the views of the changing leaf colors while getting your heart rate up.
Hiking is a great way to go exploring without having to take time off of work for a major camping experience. Just be sure to bring the necessary gear.
Take the family out for apple picking
The back of your truck isn’t only good for pumpkins and hayrides. Take the family out for an apple picking adventure and load up your treasures to keep the doctor away for months.
Just be sure that your precious future-pie cargo is strapped in and secure before you head home. The last thing you want is a fruit basket careening down the highway.
Make sure you have the right truck tie down straps to secure your cargo
In a four-year study by AAA, approximately two-thirds of the 200,000 crashes studied were the result of improperly secure truck cargo. No matter the season and no matter where you’re headed, it’s crucial for everyone safely that you use the right truck tie down straps and truck tie down anchors when you’re carrying cargo.
