Step 1: Prepare your vehicle Start your trip with a full tank of gas. Run a check on your brakes, wiper fluid, heater, tire pressure, and defroster. Step 2: Pack your vehicle Bring extra drinking water to prevent altitude sickness. Bring warm clothes and make sure you have a spare tire and the proper tools for changing one. Step 3: Know where you're going Bring a detailed map of the area. GPS and online map sites can be vague or can falter when referring to remote roads. Step 4: Maintain proper speed Maintain a safe speed and downshift when going downhill, rather than using your brakes to control your downhill speed. Use a lower gear for more power when going uphill. Tip Do not cross the center line while driving on curves. You will endanger yourself and other drivers. Step 5: Take breaks and stay alert Take frequent breaks along the way. Mountain driving can be tiring, so allow yourself time to rest and take in the scenery. Did You Know? Did you know? One of every two people on the planet depends on mountain water.
