Oh, the places you’ll go with your trusty tank of propane provided to you by your trusty propane distributor DiSanto. DiSanto Propane, Upstate New York’s top propane distributor, has been around for over 80 years now. At the risk of tooting our own horn, we are pretty darn proud of that fact. We aren’t going to spend an inordinate amount of time belaboring the point, but we will say that anytime you find a family-owned company that has been around since before humans walked on the moon, the Cold War, TV, and WWII, there’s a decent chance that company knows what they are doing. We are such a propane company. We were established in 1937 and we have no plans of going anywhere.

Oh, the places you’ll go with your Mighty Flame Propane Tank. You could travel across the country where you want to, as there are hundreds and hundreds of Mighty Flame Propane Tank Exchange locations out there. So whether you are planning on cooking out in the backyard or in Yosemite National Park, you’ll have the reliable, safe, clean, and green energy source known as propane to be your road trip buddy along the way.

Today’s post is about what else you’ll need besides propane and an A-to-B to get you wherever you feel the open road taking you. Let’s get you sorted out for your late summer road trip to Who-Knows-Where, USA.

Get Your Car Tuned Up

Get your oil checked, get your tire’s air pressure checked, the whole nine yards. Take it to your trusted mechanic and make sure they leave no stone unturned. If you head out to the boonies, you need to have a reliable vehicle, especially if you plan on making this venture a solo one.

First Aid Kit

In the same vein, you don’t know what kind of adventure your trip might entail. Adventure isn’t always a good thing either. Sometimes it can be painful — one moment you think you are going to get Instagram-famous from your selfie with a baby wolverine, and the next it turns out you’ve lost half of the cartilage in your nose and you need to stop the bleeding somehow. Get that first aid kit.

The Right Apps For Your Phone

Gone are the days of using an Atlas to guide your way through continental America, unless you are a hipster or can’t find a place to charge your phone, that is. If you do have a smartphone, you’ll want to get the right apps on it. Get a weather app to know if any storms are a-brewing. Get a traffic app to let you know if you should bypass chunks of interstate or highway. That way, you can keep to the open road.

The Perfect Mixed Tape

Yeah, we know that people use smartphones and have access to more songs at the push of a button than we old-timers could have ever dreamed of, but there’s something timeless about taking the time to throw together a mixed tape or two. It defines the mood of the journey. Mix some oldies in with some new stuff. Get wild with it. Maybe even some Nickelback, if for no other reason to help you appreciate anything that isn’t Nickelback that much more.

Oh, the places you’ll go. If you have propane by your side, along with the other essentials, you are pretty much guaranteed to have a great time.
