(MS) - Fishing is a sport that captivates many people. It provides more than just a chance for a leisurely getaway; fishing is also big business. According to the American Sportfishing Association (ASA), there are 40 million anglers in the United States alone. Fishing enthusiasts and people who fish for a living help to employ the manufacturers of fishing poles, lures, tackle boxes, and all of the other necessities for the sport. It is estimated that $45 billion in retail sales are generated each year from sportfishing All across the country, anglers cast their lines for fun - and new fishing recruits sign up every season. There are many different types of fishing, so you’re bound to find a method you will enjoy. Here’s a look at some of the popular types. Fishing line fishing: This is by far the most popular type of fishing around. Using a rod and line, a fisherman attempts to hook a fish with a hook and bait. Hand fishing: This type of fishing is just what the name implies. A person uses his or her hands to catch a fish, such as in lobster or pearl diving. In some areas of the southern U.S. catfish are caught this way. This type of fishing for catfish is

called noodling. Trolling: This is a form of fishing that involves drawing the fishing lure through the water in order to attract fish. This method is often used when fishing for big game fish such as marlin and tuna. Bow/Spear fishing: A primitive type of fishing where a person stands above the water to shoot or spear a fish. In the past the spears were handthrown and the bows handpowered. Today, automatic spear guns and pneumatic bows help propel the weapon at the target. Dredging: This method entails attaching a large net or chain mesh behind a boat to scoop up fish. Commonly used to catch scallops and oysters it is typically associated with commercial fishing. Fishing can take place on the shore, while standing in the water or aboard a boat. Regardless of the type, the end result is to catch a meal or a trophy fish. Still, most sportfishing enthusiasts simply fish for the thrill, and then throw their catch back. Bait Fishing vs. Spin Fishing Sportfishermen typically use two main methods of catching fish when line fishing. Bait fishing involves using live or dead bait attached to a

Fishing is a sport enjoyed by millions of people across the country. hook. Depending upon the fish sought out, the bait will either lie on the hook at the bottom of the water, be jigged to attract the fish, or slowly reeled in to catch a fish’s eye.

Spin fishing relies on using an artificial lure that will spin under the water attracting fish. The lure is chosen to mimic the natural prey of the species being fished.

equipment make the trip as well: a life jacket. Life jackets and life preservers are mandatory items in most states. They can literally be a lifeline for a person who is injured or having trouble staying afloat in the water. In 2006 of the 710 recreational boating fatalities 90 percent of those victims were not wearing life jackets. Therefore, life jackets and other personal flotation devices (PFDs) should always be present and used correctly when in or around the water. New Styles and Innovations Everyone aboard the vessel should be wearing a life jacket that fits him or her snugly. Newer models of life jackets are more comfortable than ever before. This eliminates complaints from those who might think life jackets are too hot, bulky or unattractive to wear. It is extremely important to find life jackets that fit correctly, and ones approved by the U.S. Coast Guard. Life jackets often have weight limits that should be heeded, especially for children. A PFD too big or too small for an individual will fail to of-

fer the same level of protection as one designed to protect a person of a particular weight and stature. In regard to styles and innovations, newer life jackets aren’t the bright orange models of years past. Today life jackets come in a range of colors and styles - some especially designed for specific water sports or recreational uses. There are even life jackets that inflate when a person hits the water, greatly reducing bulk, increasing mobility and flexibility. New Way of Thinking Many boaters and water enthusiasts simply store life jackets on their boat and assume doing so is protection enough. The fact of the matter is, boating accidents or emergencies can happen in a matter of minutes. There may not be enough time to grab a life jacket and buckle it up in a dangerous situation. Failing to wear a life jacket at all times puts your life at risk and the other people on a boat. Wearing your life jacket will allow you to be safe in case of an accident and will also allow you the ability to assist others that may be in danger.

2009 Spring into Summer

Top 10 spring tips for pet owners (ARA) – Planting a garden, spring cleaning, fertilizing the lawn — we all have lots of work to do with the coming of spring. But pets also have health and safety needs this time of year that their owners should know about. “I see it all the time in my clinic in the springtime. Animals get into fertilizers and pesticides, those used on a home or on a farm, and it makes the animals sick,” says Dr. James Cook, president of the American Veterinary Medical Association. “People need to be aware of these potential hazards. Along with better weather, the spring brings with it the use of a number of common lawn chemicals and the blooming of plants that can be hazardous to pets.”

Here are the AVMA’s top 10 spring hints for pet owners: • Fleas and ticks: They can be tiny, little more than a pinhead in some instances, but they grow and spread quickly once they find a host. The preventative treatments that you may have discontinued in the winter should start early in the spring to keep your pet’s coat, and your home, free of pests. • Lawn fertilizers: Lawn fertilizers are very toxic to pets. Store fertilizers in a place far from where your dog or cat — and children— can get at it. After applying it to your lawn, follow manufacturer instructions on how long you should wait before allowing your pet into the area. If you see a sign posted on a lawn that tells you to keep

your pets off, abide by it. • Pesticides and herbicides: It’s probably not surprising that these chemicals can be toxic to your pets, but, even when they’re not lethal, there are some long-term health concerns. Studies indicate the use of pesticides and herbicides may be tied to increased rates of specific forms of cancer in dogs. If your pet is exposed, wash them with soap and water immediately and call your veterinarian. • Cocoa bean mulch: It’s becoming common to mulch a garden with the fragrant spent shells of cocoa beans. But just like chocolate, dogs like to eat them and they are toxic. • Lilies: Lilies are a flower common in the spring, and they are very, very toxic to cats. Cats

will often chew them, and even small amounts can lead to kidney failure and death. • Rhubarb leaves: Rhubarb makes a fine pie and it’s a staple in many vegetable gardens, but the leaves are poisonous and can cause kidney failure. For a complete list of plants and plantings that can be dangerous to pets, visit www.avma.org. • Rat and mouse poisons: Controlling vermin becomes an issue again in the spring. Be aware that the same properties of common rat and mouse poisons that make them irresistible to pests will also attract your pet. If consumed, these can be fatal to your animal. • Cleaning products: Spring cleaning is an annual tradition in many households, but make

sure the cleaning products don’t hurt your animals. If the label states “keep pets and children away from area until dry” follow those instructions carefully, and store all chemicals out of reach of children and pets. • Paint and paint thinners: If you’re putting a fresh coat of paint on the house, keep the pets away. Paint thinners, mineral spirits and other solvents can cause severe irritation or chemical burns if swallowed or even if they come in contact with your pet’s skin. Latex house paints typically produce a minor stomach upset, but some specialty paints may contain heavy metals or volatile substances that could be harmful if ingested • Preventative medications: Consult with your veterinarian

Have a great lawn that’s good to the earth (ARA) – Caring for the environment means caring for a full, green lawn. Properly maintaining your lawn will produce strong grass and can help protect and conserve water resources at the same time. Regular care and lawn maintenance is especially important if you live near large bodies of fresh water like the Great Lakes. Containing more than 90 percent of the fresh surface water in the United States, the Great Lakes provide more than 40 million Americans and Canadians with drinking water. To enjoy a great lawn and protect fresh water resources for generations to come, follow these lawn care tips from the experts at The Scotts MiracleGro Company and the Alliance for the Great Lakes: • Strong, dense lawns can help reduce run off and erosion, and filter rainwater to recharge groundwater supplies. The foundation of a good lawn is rich soil, so use a mulching mower to return grass clippings to the soil where the clippings break down and recycle nutrients back into the grass. • Generally, only new lawns require additional phosphorus for root growth. For mature lawns, choose a fertilizer that is low-phosphorus or phosphorus-free, unless a soil test shows a need for more.

about seasonal medications to keep your pet healthy. For example, in many parts of the country, heartworm medications for dogs are often discontinued in the winter. Springtime is the season to restart this medication to keep your dog free of this parasite. But keep in mind that manufacturer’s instructions warn that heartworm medications should not be given without first visiting your veterinarian to ensure that your pet has not developed the heartworm parasite. A simple blood test will give you that peace of mind. For more information, visit www.avma.org. For a fulllength video on common household poisons and hazards, visit www.avmatv.org.

• The best time to fertilize is in the spring and fall. Never fertilize when the ground is frozen. • Use a drop spreader or rotary spreader with a side guard to keep fertilizer on the lawn. • Sweep any grass clippings and fertilizer that land on driveways and sidewalks back on to the lawn to help keep nutrients out of waterways. • Set your mower to its highest setting to build strong, deep grass roots that can find water and nutrients. Longer grass can also better withstand periods of heat and drought. • If your lawn is dry, the best time to water it is in the morning. Water easily evaporates in the afternoon and watering at night can cause fungus and disease. • When lawn problems arise,

select the right product for the task. For small problems, use a spot treatment. For numerous problems throughout the yard, use a broadcast application. • Use native plants in your landscape and garden. These plants are adapted to your area and better able to tolerate adverse conditions and resist disease. • Avoid application when rain is in the forecast, as heavy rainfall can overwhelm soils and cause fertilizers to be washed into waterways. • Storm sewers often lead directly into streams and lakes. Never dispose of clippings or pet waste in or around sewers or water resources, such as rivers, lakes and streams. Make it a habit to sweep up any fertilizer, grass clippings and leaves.

With the warmer weather upon us, individuals who have been hibernating indoors will once again be venturing outside to enjoy Mother Nature. That also means taking boats and other water crafts out of dry dock to return them to the water for use. To ensure a safe boating season, spring preparation and checking of the vessel are highly recommended. No matter how carefully a boat is stored for the winter, there will be routine maintenance to take care of before the boat can once again hit the water. Here is a handy checklist you can use as you examine your boat and ready it for the new season.

HUGE SELECTION!

Mulching around plants, trees and shrubs is a practice that pays both cosmetic and practical dividends. much time to mulch probably doesn’t have much time to maintain it either. • Protection. How well mulch insulates is also an important factor to consider. For example, during the summer months mulch should work to keep heat out, while it should do the exact opposite in the winter. Once the weather has taken a turn for the warmer in the spring, consider mulching a summer garden with hay, wood shavings or even compost. These mulches will insulate the garden from summer heat. In the wintertime, pine needles or straw are effective at trapping heat once the ground has frozen. Other mulches, including bark and stone, are essentially the multi-taskers of mulch, working to insulate in both summer and winter.

It’s almost May and the summer swimsuit season is right around the corner. So how do you ready yourself for being scantily clad at the shore or around the pool — and fast? The good news is there is still time to slim down and firm up before you don the bikini. It is reasonable to lose about 8 pounds in 4 to 6 weeks. A loss of 8 pounds can make a big difference in how you look in a swimsuit and other summer clothing. • Skip the sweets and packaged foods. Stick to fresh

fruits; several small, light meals; and plenty of water. • Get out there and sweat. You will need to exercise to shed the weight. Aim for 30 to 60 minutes a day. • Write down everything that you eat so you can see where you over-indulge. • Avoid gas-producing foods or eating/drinking in a manner that can trap air in your digestive system. This will only make you look bloated. • Skip salty foods that could cause you to retain water.

surrounds should garner the bulk of the attention. Dark-colored mulches tend to instill a relaxing feel to gardens, while brighter colored mulches might work better in vegetable gardens. Don’t be afraid to seek advice from the sales representatives where you’re buying your mulch as to which mulch goes best with each area. Mulch does not have to be uniform throughout the property to provide maximum aesthetic appeal. • Benefits to the soil. Arguably the biggest advantage to using mulch is its positive impact on soil. However, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists, a nonprofit group dedicated to working for a healthy environment, different mulches serve the soil in different ways. While all organic mulches fertilize the soil as they decay, they do so at different speeds. If improving the soil is a priority when mulching, rapidly decaying or nitrogen rich mulch is most beneficial. Rapidly decaying mulches include shredded leaves and grass clippings and are typically recommended for annuals. Slowly decaying mulches, such as bark or straw, are generally considered most beneficial to trees and shrubs. • Application. For some homeowners, finding the time to get outside and lay mulch can prove very difficult. In such cases, easy application is probably paramount. At this point, it’s probably best to consult a professional as to which mulch is not only the easiest to apply, but also the easiest to maintain, as anyone who doesn’t have

soil, mulch helps to reduce weeds, conserve soil moisture and keep soil strong throughout the often trying temperatures of summer. For homeowners hoping to get the most out of their mulch this season, the following factors should be considered before beginning a mulching project. • Appearance. Many homeowners want to make their lawn as aesthetically appealing as possible. A good looking lawn can increase property value and instill a sense of pride for all who live at a home. Mulch comes in a variety of appearances. Color and tidiness are two sticking points for many homeowners. Typically, no one wants the mulch to be the talk of guests and neighbors, instead the plants, trees and shrubs the mulch

Few and far between are the homeowners who have the time to cultivate a green thumb. Be it obligations at the office, full schedules with the family or, most likely, a little bit of both, many times homeowners are understandably quick to trust their landscaping to a local professional. But in the harsh economy of the day, it can’t hurt for homeowners to have a little landscape knowledge of their own. In that case, should the purse strings need to be tightened a little bit, homeowners won’t watch their lawns wither under the harsh summer heat. One of the best tricks of the landscaping trade is to utilize mulch around plants, trees and shrubs. Both aesthetically appealing and beneficial to

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

An outdoor garden room can be a natural extension of your home. It can be as elaborate or simple as you like. Some people build a three-season porch complete with furniture, dining tables, and lighting attached to their house. Others keep it simple by just decorating their existing deck or patio with favorite plants and pottery. Some gardeners create a special room in the yard away from the house and all its activity. Whichever way you go, here are some basic ideas to create a beautiful and functional outdoor garden room to enjoy. Design to Use. Think of how you’d like to use your outdoor space. Do you like entertaining and cooking for people? If so, you might want to incorporate an outdoor oven and sink in the room. Also, if you’ll be serving food in the outdoor room, build the room close to the kitchen to reduce the amount of trips you’ll have make. If the room is mostly a quiet retreat or reading space, consider large plants and structures that create hidden resting areas with comfortable outdoor furniture and good lighting. Creating a garden room is a great way to enjoy the comforts of home.

Nature has something to tell you.

Clippings are a lawn’s best friend (MS) - While it might have been a chore most would have liked to avoid when they were kids or teenagers, for adult lawncare enthusiasts mowing the lawn can be an enjoyable time. Whether you’re a fan of ride-on lawn mowers or you go with the more traditional push mower, an afternoon spent mowing the lawn can be good exercise and a way to catch a few rays. Of course, once the job is done, what to do with the grass clippings can present a genuine problem. Yard waste is actually a valuable commodity, one that can help homeowners save money if used correctly. How do clippings benefit a yard? When returned to the yard, grass clippings can pay numerous dividends. First and foremost, grass clippings can help homeowners save money

on fertilizer. Clippings contain valuable levels of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, and can help cut fertilizer needs by up to 25 percent. In addition, clippings work as a food source for bacteria in the soil. One of the things bacteria does is decompose harmful and unsightly thatch, improving the lawn’s health and increasing its aesthetic appeal. How Much Should I Leave? If you’re going to be returning clippings to your yard, you’ll need to make adjustments to your mower and your mowing schedule. While some homeowners would like to set their blades as low as possible to reduce the number of times they’ll have to mow the lawn, this is not healthy for your yard. Mow grass tall with a sharp blade so that no more than one inch of grass is removed each time the lawn is cut. If you set the blades too low, clippings will pile up and this will damage the yard. Also, cutting grass too low does not encourage root growth and promotes inefficient use of water. When grass is cut at the correct height, roots grow more extensively, which helps make the yard more resistant to drought. During the season of rapid growth (typically spring), you might need to mow twice per week. While this might sound like a chore, it won’t be as hard as it sounds. That’s because if a lawn is mowed properly at the correct height, the job gets

easier and doesn’t take much time at all. As the lawn begins to grow less rapidly, you can return to the typical cutting schedule. How does a mulching mower help? Mulching mowers can be of tremendous assistance to anyone looking to get more out of their clippings. A mulching mower works by cutting clippings into smaller pieces and dispersing them back into the yard as you’re cutting the lawn. Keeping the blades at a correct height is essential when using a mulching mower. When its blades are set correctly, a mulching mower will distribute clippings more evenly than a standard mower, essentially eliminating the risk of spreading too many clippings onto any one spot and damaging the lawn as a result. Can clippings be used elsewhere? Clippings can be used as mulch and in a compost pile. When using clippings for either process, however, be sure to mix in other ingredients. Grass clippings, when they’re not spread out over a lawn but collected in a pile, will produce a very foul odor. However, when mixed with leaves or wood chips, the odor will dissipate. Also, by mixing with wood chips and leaves, you’re reducing the thickness of the clippings, which will allow more oxygen to get into the soil.

Spring into Summer

Michigan state parks and forest campgrounds seeking hosts for the upcoming season Michigan state sarks, recreation areas and forest management campgrounds are seeking volunteer campground hosts for this spring, summer and fall seasons. A host can sign up for a minimum of four weeks or more of free camping in one of Michigan’s beautiful natural and/or historic areas.

“The schedules of our volunteer hosts allow ample time to enjoy recreational activities with friends and family members while providing volunteer services within a Michigan state park or state forest campground,” said Ron Olson, chief of the Department of Natural Resources Parks and Recreation

Division. “Hosts have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and perhaps develop new friendships. Campground hosts can be individuals or teams such as a wife and husband; must be 18 years of age or older and have their own camping gear.” Campground hosts provide

Warm weather equipment check-up guide (ARA) - You’ve put your winter coat away, and the days are getting longer. Welcome to warm weather! Unfortunately, that’s not all that is getting longer. Your lawn is calling and you need to be ready to answer. Spring is the start of the lawn care season, and with a little work early in the year your lawn and garden equipment will be ready to perform all season long. This guide will help you move into the yard without a hitch. Safety First • Remove the power cord, spark plug wire, or battery for cordless equipment prior to performing any service. Also gloves and eye protection are required to safely perform service. • Next, check all of the unit’s fasteners, replace any that are missing, and tighten loose fasteners to the manufacturer’s recommended tightness. Loose and missing fasteners are a frequent cause of trips to the repair shop, and can be dangerous. Sharp Cutters are Key Evaluate the condition of any blades, cutting attachments or blower impellers. If in poor condition, these items will impair performance and can cause injury. • It’s probably best to leave maintenance of these items to a professional unless you are a very skillful mechanic and instructions for removal, replacement and sharpening are readily available.

Electric Equipment • Electric equipment’s external cords and wires should be checked for fraying. • Check all extension cords used to power these products. Any frayed cords and wires should be repaired immediately by a certified technician. Replace any bad extension cords. Don’t risk using the unit or extension cord even once as dangerous shocks can result. • Ensure that all switches are intact and activate freely. Fully charge the battery, if applicable. Gas Powered Equipment • Perform the simple maintenance procedures from the owner’s manual. • Check the oil before starting any small engine that doesn’t use gas/oil fuel mix. Place the product on level ground to avoid false readings. If the oil is low, fill it to the recommended level with the specified oil. Also, while some oil consumption is normal for small engines, now is a good time to check for oil leaks that need to be addressed by a professional. • Check the air filter; carefully clean dirt, oil, and debris off the filter cover and the surrounding area before removing the cover. Examine the filter, and if it is dirty, replace or clean it per manufacturer’s instructions. • More experienced DIYers might want to change the oil and filter and check the spark plug. Make sure that your fuel is fresh as stale fuel can dam-

age your engine. Unless you used a fuel stabilizer, any fuel more than 90 days old needs to be properly disposed of. Cables and Levers • Check to make sure all of these cables and levers operate smoothly. If they don’t, lubricate or replace them. Start Up • Connect the spark plug wire and fire up engine-powered equipment. Following the operator’s manual instructions, fill up the fuel tank with fresh fuel, making sure there are no fuel leaks, and start the engine. • If the engine doesn’t start, it is often because unstabilized fuel was left in the unit during storage. This stale fuel doesn’t like to burn and leaves varnish in your carburetor’s small passages and the fuel line. But all is not lost. If stale fuel and a dirty fuel system are the causes of hard starting, try a fuel system revitalizer. These starting fluids/system cleaners can refresh stale fuel and clean muck out of your fuel system just by pouring them into the unit’s fuel tank. It’s an easy and economical way to fix a gunked-up engine. • If the engine still will not start after trying a fuel system revitalizer, it’s best to get a professional opinion. Spring lawn care season is a great way to get active and enjoy the outdoors. It can be rewarding and easy if your tools are ready from the start. So what are you waiting for? Get going!

What continues to be one of the greenest modes of transport besides walking? Riding a bicycle. Traditional bicycles remain the greenest solution for personal mobility. Bicycles burn no fossil fuels, if constructed well can last for years, require little maintenance, and are easy for anyone to operate. Bicycles, which normally have a boost in sales during the warm-weather season, are now being purchased year-round because of their eco-friendliness. And more people are buying bikes. This bicycle resurgence may not be based entirely on their green nature. It may also have to do with the fact that bicycles present a healthier alternative mode of transportation. Bicycles aren’t only good for

the environment, they are good for the bike riders. It is estimated that the average 150 pound person burns 410 calories while pedaling 12 miles in an hour. The California Department of Health Services reports that behind tobacco, a leading cause of death among adults is inactivity and sedentary lifestyles. Hopping on a bicycle can help change that statistic. Bicycles can be a very good, healthy way of getting around but only if safety measures are taken. Cyclists who ride sober, with the flow of traffic, wearing helmets, and using lights at night, are 99.999 percent more likely to survive their rides, according to research by Johns Hopkins. Many bicycle riders are not entirely familiar with the laws

of bike riding, which could put them in danger. It pays to visit your department of motor vehicles or transportation department to get a copy of the laws governing bicycles. A local police department may be able to help you out with information as well. Here are some general rules that can keep you safe. • always ride wearing a helmet • a headlight is encouraged to make you more visible in dim light • do not “ride” another person on your bicycle if it is a single-rider bike • ride only in the street, not on the sidewalk • follow the same rules of the road that cars would obey, including signaling and stopping at traffic signals.

2009 Spring into Summer

15 landscaping mistakes homeowners should avoid You certainly want your lawn and garden to look beautiful, but far too often homeowners succumb to making landscaping mistakes. Here are some of the more common gaffes and how to remedy them. 1. Lawn ornament overkill: Putting too many lawn ornaments into your yard can take away from the natural beauty of the landscape. If you want to

add a whimsical touch, stick with one or two. 2. Improper plant locations: The reason garden centers and nurseries put those care tags on plants is so that you will know how to care for the plant. You should take into consideration the proper sunlight and exposure your plants will need. 3. Scalping the lawn: It is not true that cutting your lawn short

will mean less mowing. The lawn has different requirements throughout the year. In cooler weather you can get away with cutting it shorter so that sunlight can penetrate the soil. In the summer, keep the blades longer to maximize water retention and promote soil shade. 4. Picking the wrong plants: Many people pick plants because they simply look good and not because they’ll be appropriate for their yard. 5. Thinking animals won’t bother your landscape: Once you plant attractive and delicious flowering plants you could find your yard is the new dining spot for a host of wildlife. Intersperse bitter-tasting flowers with the sweet ones to deter deer. Birds, rabbits, squirrels and other animals may need barriers to keep them out. 6. Pruning willy-nilly: Many plants prosper when pruned. However, over-pruning or doing so the wrong way or at the wrong time can harm a plant. Learn the correct way from books or a gardening center. Otherwise, don't prune at all. 7. Too much color: A smattering of color here and there can be too much and distracting when your landscape is viewed. Instead, choose a color palette and stick with a few similar hues. 8. Forgetting the family: An ornate garden certainly looks pretty, but how practical is it for your way of life? If you have kids, you may have to think about how your property is used and plan your landscape around that.

9. Failing to be safe: Follow the recommendations and warnings on any tools you use for gardening. Always read the instructions and user’s manual. 10. Grab and go: It’s easy to want to buy everything you see at the garden center, but it’s better to go in with a plan and a shopping list. Mixing and matching too many elements in your yard could look sloppy and not well thought out. 11. Poor maintenance: Garden beds generally require weeding and tending once or twice a month. Make sure you have the time to take care of your landscape after you create it. Otherwise, find someone reliable whom you can hire to care for it. 12. Failing to budget: Gardening, just like any hobby, can cost money. Make a list of what you’re willing to spend and stick to it. Otherwise the bills can quickly escalate. 13. One-season landscape: Your landscape should grow and change with the weather. Plan for plantings that bloom or offer color all year round. 14. Forgetting the day-tonight transition: Of course you want your yard to look great during the day, but what about enjoying it at night? Make sure it is safe and plan for exterior illumination so that you can have many wonderful evenings under the stars. 15. No roadmap: You must have a plan for your landscape. Plot it out on paper, make a list of your materials and costs, run the idea by all those in the household and only then begin.

open road is how road-tripready their car is and how it’s going to look and perform when it’s finally time to push the pedal to the metal. For the antsy motorist ready to leave work in the dust and hit the highway, consider the following tips to make sure your vehicle can have as good a trip as you do. • Wash your car: When hitting the beach for a weekend getaway, having a good-looking car is almost as important as looking good yourself. While a trip to the tanning salon won’t do your car any good, a thorough car wash will. Use two

mitts to wash your car: one to wash the top and one for the gritty undercarriage so the big bits don’t scratch the paint in more visible areas. A quick wash removes not-so-friendly deposits from busy little birds, water spots from recreational areas, break dust that erodes the wheel surface, and all kinds of debris that dims your car’s shine over time. • Be prepared for anything: Perhaps the biggest problem with flat tires is they always seem to come at the worst possible time. Before you duck out of the office early and start your weekend getaway, be sure you’re prepared for whatever pitfalls the road might present. Check the trunk and make sure you still have a spare tire and a jack ready to roll should they be needed. • Get a tune-up: Nothing can ruin a spring road trip more than a broken-down vehicle. After a harsh or even a mild winter, your car deserves a tune-up, and you deserve a reliable car when you hit the road. Make sure the battery has plenty of juice, the tires are properly inflated and that there’s fresh oil in the engine.
