Winter Travel Tips!

Our last blog contained some great trips about getting your car ready for a Winter storm!  Today we are going to discuss  Winter travel tips to keep you and your family safe! If you are from Minnesota, you have probably noticed it's much more treacherous to drive when the temperature is at or near freezing.  Why?  On roadways, water forms when temps rise above 32 and can create new ice conditions when the temp drops below 32! Do you know what tends to freeze first?  Bridges and overpasses.  This is because they freeze from both the top and the bottom!  So be aware!  Also, low-lying areas and shadowed areas can attract ice because the temps may be cooler! If you accumulated a lot of snow on your vehicle from being parked outside during a snow-storm, be sure to remove all the extra snow so that you can be seen and see everyone else clearly!  We’ve all seen the big truck driving down the highway with a cloud of blowing snow bl ... read more

DJ Pro Tips for your Trips!

DJ Pro Tips for your Trips!

When you’re planning to go on a long road trip, you now have the option of abandoning terrestrial radio for satellite radio stations to keep music neutral for the party. But that’s not the only option available. You can download Spotify lists and other streaming services to a device for playback. And in many cases, you can load MP3 files directly into the onboard memory of the entertainment system via USB thumb drives.  The space available for your playlist can be a blessing or a curse when planning music for a long playlist.
