Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

The past couple of winters in Chicago have been mild. Many have become complacent about old man winter. History shows that after a mild winter or two, the next season may not be as gentle. Do not be caught unprepared for extreme winter weather. Thankfully, Sam’s Club is making it easy to get winter ready with a fantastic opportunity for members to purchase top of the line Goodyear® Assurance® WeatherReady™ tires.

Key to staying active in winter is mobility

For those that follow my blog and social media know how passionate I am about staying active during winter. Over the past five years I have cross-country skied several marathons in Wisconsin, Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and in Quebec, Canada. In order to complete these marathons, I have extensively trained all over the Midwest. Since the last couple of winters have been mild, I have had to drive several times to northern Wisconsin and even the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The key to staying active during the winter is mobility. Tires are the most important safety aspect to this mobility. I cannot tell you how many times I have found myself in a snowstorm or ice storm heading north or returning home. The location of many cross-country ski trails are off the beaten path on ice covered dirt roads. If you spin out on these roads it may take hours to get rescued. You cannot afford to slack when it comes to winter safety. This is why I have prepared a winter readiness video tutorial. See the embedded video below:

Safety is paramount

Even if you are not planning to ski cross-country ski marathons, or even head out into the outdoors, being winter ready is essential to day-to-day safety.  The question is not whether you can afford a new set of Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady tires, but can you afford not to get them. The answer is: the safety of your family depends on having reliable tires with dependable grip and traction.

Sam’s Club member opportunity

Sam’s Club members have the opportunity to get winter ready in just two hours. I took two hours of my day last weekend and visited the Evanston, Illinois location. I pre-ordered my tires on Friday. They were in stock. Sam’s Club called me on Tuesday afternoon to let me know the tires were ready.

I arrived the next day at noon, and I dropped off the keys to my Saturn. I took a walk along the Chicago River and returned an hour and a half later. They informed that they were finishing up the installation, and my car would be ready in five minutes. This tire only fits certain vehicles. They drove my car to the front and handed me the keys. Although a balmy September day, I felt so secure knowing my car was already winter ready.
