Take Chevy’s Road Trip Across All Contiguous 48 States

Setting Out For A Road Trip

Chevy’s Road Trip Coming To You

Have you dreamed of seeing the entire country by car? Now’s your chance with Chevy’s road trip, designed in conjunction with data scientist Randy Olson. The trip takes you through all 48 contiguous United States (you’ll have to get to Alaska and Hawaii some other time) with an exciting stop in each state, including theme parks, national parks, and famous landmarks.

All Across America

The trip covers 13,389 miles of American roadways and would take roughly 214.56 hours—that’s nine days—of pure driving. But since you will probably want to stop to eat, sleep, and use the restroom (and fill up at the gas station and get some oil changes), the trip will likely take you much longer. In fact, with each of the 48 planned stops and your own detours to see family, friends, and travel destinations you’ve always dreamed of, you should probably plan for at least a month on the road.

Shared Memories With The Family

“Road trips are about creating shared memories and quality time with family and friends,” remarked Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars, and Crossovers. “And when on the road, travelers can trust Chevrolet vehicles to help get them where they’re going reliably. Chevrolet is now the only brand to earn J.D. Power Dependability Awards for cars, trucks, and SUVs three years in a row.”

Whether you plan to tackle all of Chevy’s road trip or just a portion near us in Pennsylvania, make sure to get your routine maintenance done first at H&H Chevrolet in Shippensburg, PA.

Chevy Will Increase Bolt Production to Launch US Into EV Future

Charge At Your Home

Bolt Production For The World

It is no secret that our current method of powering vehicles is not sustainable: Gasoline is a limited resource, and it pollutes our environment every time we use it. Automakers have heavily been investing in alternative fuel source research in the last several decades, leading to innovative vehicles like Chevy’s Malibu Hybrid, Volt plug-in hybrid, and Bolt EV.

No More Gasoline

As part of its commitment toward a future where we don’t rely on gas-powered vehicles, Chevrolet will be upping Chevrolet Bolt production at its Orion Assembly plant near Detroit. This comes from Mary Barra, GM CEO and a major proponent of electric vehicles. Barra did not state how much of a production increase the plant would see, but she did indicate that this would create jobs in Detroit.

Adopting Electric Vehicles

“I think it’s [adoption of electric vehicles] going to happen more quickly than decades. As more and more people recognize that we have the right range, understand that we have a charging infrastructure so they don’t think you’re going to be stranded, I think you’re going to see EV adoption continue,” Barra told CNBC in an interview.

Charge Stations Coming Your Way

General Motors will also be working with those in the energy industry and other key stakeholders to develop a wider network of EV charging stations here in the United States. If you want to get a head start on the future, come talk to us at H&H Chevrolet in Shippensburg, PA about the Chevrolet Bolt and how you can drive one home.

Appalachian Trail

Perhaps one of the most well-known hiking trails in the world is the Appalachian Trail, and a segment is here in the Cumberland Valley.  Parts of it are good for beginners and have plenty of parking and several access points. Considering that the whole trail is about 2,200 miles long, do your homework before you set out on your hike.

 

Cumberland Valley Rail Trail

This is a very simple, flat 11-mile trail, which makes it excellent for biking if you’re not much of a hiker yourself. There are even horseback riding opportunities on this trail.

 

Flat Rock Trail on the Tuscarora Trail

Amateurs should not attempt this trail, which is rated “moderate to difficult.” However, its challenge rewards dedicated hikers with a gorgeous 180-degree view of Cumberland Valley.

 

Kings Gap Trail Network

Have hikers of varying skill level in your group? The Kings Gap Trail Network offers many scenic trails of different difficulties and lengths.

 

LeTort Spring Run & Nature Trail

This simple 2-mile trail surrounds the popular fly-fishing stream known as LeTort Spring Run, providing gorgeous scenery known throughout the area, which rounds out our list of top 5 hikes in the valley.

 

If you’re headed hiking and you’re looking for a capable vehicle to take you to the trail, consider stopping in at H&H Chevy.

How to Keep Your 2018 New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year

We’re nearly ready to ring in the New Year which means it’s time to decide what your goal is for 2018. Here are a few tips from us here at H&H Chevrolet to help you keep your 2018 New Year resolutions.

Be Realistic

The first step in achieving your 2018 New Year resolution is to be realistic when deciding what you want to strive for. For example, deciding to visit all seven continents with limited funds and time isn’t a realistic goal and is one most people will fail. Choosing something realistic, like kicking a bad habit, increases your odds of success.

Change Slowly

In order to achieve you’re goal, you’ll want to start small. If you want to stop smoking, start by cutting down on your number of daily cigarettes, then stop smoking for one day out of the week, and increase it from there. Changing slowly is the best way to ensure that you’ll achieve your goal by the year’s end.

Don’t Fret Failure

Failure is a part of life, and it’s only natural to mess up a few times. Messing up on your diet or failing to keep to your routine doesn’t mean you should stop entirely. Pick up where you left off and keep striving to tackle your resolution!

Stop Procrastinating

Whether you’re procrastinating work, school, or chores, you’re wasting time and energy. Choosing to stop procrastinating menial tasks in 2018 will help you achieve your goals much more efficiently. In fact, it could open up more free time that you could dedicate to your favorite hobby.

Make a Fall Bucket List With Your Family

Making a bucket list is a great chance for anyone to set goals and have life experiences they might not have done otherwise. And with the changing seasons, it’s a great time of year to sit down and pen a fall bucket list with your loved ones. But what should you put on it?

Hiking

Whether you’re setting out on a real weekend camping trip or just heading for a nature walk in a nearby park, hiking is a great way to get out of the house and see the changing fall foliage.

Pick Apples and Pumpkins

Its harvest time for local orchards and pumpkins patches, which means you can find nearby spots that allow you and your family to pick fresh apples or cut your own pumpkin off the vine.

Baking

Now that you have fresh, local produce from going apple-picking, you can use these ingredients to make goodies from scratch – like fresh apple pie or candy apples. You can even make use of pumpkins for treats like pumpkin spice pancakes!

Crafts With Leaves

With all the pretty leaves dropping from the trees, it’s a great opportunity to get your kids thinking creatively by making arts and crafts out of fallen leaves.

Farm Activities

Local farms, in addition to letting you pick seasonal produce, may also have events like corn mazes or hayrides that let people come to their farm and play.

Put these on your fall bucket list for a season the whole family will enjoy.

Raining Cats and Dogs

Want a cute visual pun? Put your child in a raincoat and give them an umbrella – but make sure to decorate the umbrella with little cut-outs of clipart of cats and dogs first!
