Picnic Basket Essentials

The weather’s warming up, and summer holidays are coming around. That means it’s time to get outside here in Princeton, West Virginia! Picnics are an ideal outdoor activity, but you’ll want to know how to make the perfect picnic basket before heading out. Here are a few picnic basket essentials to consider

  1. A blanket

This is obvious, but you’ll want the perfect blanket. Big enough for food and people! It’s good to bring an extra, too.

  1. A corkscrew

The worst situation is a wine bottle you can’t open. Make sure you have a hefty corkscrew.

  1. Ice pack

You don’t want food to get warm and spoil in the hot weather. Be sure you sandwich some ice packs in between those sandwiches!

  1. Plastic/acrylic wine glasses

These have two benefits: they can be reused and they’re picnic-ready. They also have a cool indentation for your thumb to make it easier to hold!

  1. Moist towelettes

These are perfect for messy food; you’ll have a napkin and washcloth all-in-one.

  1. Salt n’ peppa

Okay, not the hit 90’s R&B group, unless you have an old CD hanging around… but salt and pepper are key elements for your meal! Don’t go without them.

  1. Trash bags

Of course, you need trash bags for you cleanup. Picnic on!

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Debuts

Mitsubishi is always out to impress, and it’s doing just that with the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4. A close relative of the Mirage hatchback, the all-new Mirage G4 is going to bring an even fresher face to the “Mirage” name.

While the G4 will share the powertrain with the 2017 hatchback, it stands out on its own with other features. The Mirage G4 is set to be top of its class in combined fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions. There’s plenty of space, too, as the G4’s long wheelbase makes for a generous trunk and spacious cabin.

Savvy tech features include available smartphone integration, with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This integration allows you to use your phone hands-free, so you’ll be safe and connected.

“A few years ago we entered the subcompact segment with the Mirage hatchback and its popularity with consumers has grown every year with its combination of top fuel economy, attractive pricing and one of the industry’s best new car warranties,” said MMNA executive vice president, Don Swearingen.

He’s right. With the 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty and a host of other warranties, you’ll be protected behind the wheel of the 2017 Mirage G4.
