At the beginning of autumn, there is that sense of change--with the changing of the seasons, we somehow also sense a change in perspective towards the remaining days of the year. With the holidays approaching, we begin to make plans for those special times together. These opportunities frequently involve our vehicles, and making it truly a quality time together factors into our considerations as we assess our vehicle needs. Good quality time together can include the journey, not JUST the arrival. So, on the brink of the holiday season, let's envision some "on the journey" possibilities: Why not plan a little extra time for visiting some sights in our “Treasure State” along the way, time well-spent in making great memories for those involved. Maybe before you visit extended family for the Thanksgiving holiday, consider taking the opportunity to leave a little earlier and enjoy a few scenic spots as you move across our amazing state. It is nice not to feel rushed when everyone needs the refreshment of a little extra space out under the big sky. Where do you and the family enjoy visiting when you have a little time to spare on a nice fall weekend? If you are like many Montanans, just taking the opportunity to visit a local state park or nearby “fun getaway” can be a convenient chance to spend enjoyable family time together.
You may find that a major sports outing in the fall school season will give you a great excuse to integrate some extra family time together in the vehicle. As to time on the road, you might enjoy a books on tape adventure as you move over the miles to the event. Then there's the impromptu fun of "tailgating" a meal together. There is definitely a nice mix of activities possible for those willing to look for them. You certainly don't have to look far. "Wonder" is right on our doorstep. It's time to get out into it! Many families find that a larger vehicle helps to meet comfort needs of the enteurage along the way. Plus add in a pet dog or two and the space becomes limited. If you are traveling any great distance, managing clutter and spacial issues become important considerations when making your plans.
What type of vehicle do you imagine would allow for quality time in a variety of circumstances? Does your lifestyle warrant a “larger than most” vehicle to transport all the “cargo” or are you adept enough to creatively manage the space you already have? Either way, it may be that as you break the mold of the “typical size”you may need a little extra help in the cleanup. That is where our company can be of service. Check us out for a complete detail before your holiday (or sporting) adventure, and see just how great an effect cleanliness can have on group morale!
Living in Montana can influence the vehicle we choose to own. We live in a location with wonderful outlets for all sorts of travel within the state. With a variety of lifestyle options-- from back country to the smaller city life, we choose our vehicle as a major tool towards enhancing those lifestyles. As we consider how our vehicle matches the basic essentials of living in Big Sky country, we also recognize that knowing how to best care for that vehicle will ensure that it is effective as a tool and will enable us to comfortably get done what needs to be done. For example, are you someone who likes to be a part of lots of outdoor recreation? Many in our area especially are heavily involved in the pursuit of an outdoor athletic lifestyle that requires the exploration of new terrain. A nice, clean, well-performing sport utility vehicle certainly lines up with that lifestyle. Additionally, do you use your vehicle to “tour the state” during hunting season? Your vehicle will probably reflect those choices and the consequences.
In Montana there is a wide and open range that draws a “full range” of people. This sort of lifestyle includes those who take time to raise livestock in remote areas. Much of their work involves a well built vehicle that would benefit from a deep clean periodically.
Seasons will influence the REAL use of your vehicle/tool as many people face the challenges of changing conditions. With a fairly warm summer that can change to a cool fall and a brutal winter within a a matter of weeks, the lifestyle of many veteran Montanans often requires a special vehicle for that scenerio. When the weather changes they find the need for a 4-wheel drive vehicle --the best option for navigating the altered terrain. With all the ways the weather threatens to change at any time of the year, it is normal for Montanans to have a few extra “pieces of equipment” in case all of the “seasons” are seen in one day. The driver of the vehicle is frequently driving it because it is built to withstand the wet road that now has an icy layer that has changed within the hour. Frankly, with all of the gravel roads and trails in the mountains, a 4-wheel drive is actually the friend of many that prefer the rugged terrain. Consequently, in our state, the toughest vehicles are favored.
