When your car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, it can be a frightening and frustrating experience. If you don't have anyone to call when you need help, it can frustrate you even more. A few months ago, my truck quit on the way to work. Since I work and live in a rural area, finding someone to give me a lift to the city isn't always easy. Luckily, my employer sent a tow truck driver to help me out. The driver towed my car to a shop in town to get it repaired. The driver also offered a few tips on how to stay safe in a rural area. If you need advice or information about towing, read my blog. I show you how to keep cool under tough situations and what to do when you need towing help. Thanks for visiting.

Now that winter will soon be here, it is time to start thinking about getting your car prepared for safe winter travel. Though it is always important to change the vehicle's fluids and rotate the tires before a big trip, it is even more important that you stock your car with the necessary supplies to survive a breakdown in a rural area or getting trapped in a winter storm. Since tow truck companies can be overwhelmed during a storm, you need to be properly prepared to keep your family safe and comfortable in your vehicle for many hours if necessary.
