6. Wildlife: Extra Caution Needed
Wildlife is more active searching for food in fall, which has them scattered. Deer usually feed close to roads, and their most active feeding time is dusk and dawn. Fall is a time for hunting, also, which will further scatter animals like deer and turkey. Work on maximizing peripheral vision to proactively recognize a threat and react, such as covering your brakes while slowing down, and always keep your eyes moving.
7. Beware Frosty Roads
Regardless of how warm the day temperatures can get, the mornings can provide some frosty conditions. Even the thinnest layer of frost can result in a loss of traction. Try to stay in the middle of the road since more frost will collect around the edges, and preferably ride in car-tire tracks.
8. Camping? Make Sure You Got the Essentials
Remember, it’s autumn, and it can be 75 during the day and 40 at night. Plan accordingly if you’re going to camp–something we highly recommend due to the beauty. Just be prepared with a warmer sleeping bag, and find the most optimal place for a tent that won’t take on any water or morning fog. For more, check out or Fall Camping Tips.
