Preparing 2010 Toyota Prius for a 1300 mile road trip

I am about to drive my 2010 Prius with 65K on it about 1300 miles. Looking for tips and tricks to making sure I get there with as little problem as possible. Going east from NE to VA.

Carry your cell phone, and better yet, a smart phone and an in-car charger with you. Car breaks, call a tow truck.

Before you start any trip - 200 miles or 4000 miles - check the oil level, the air in and condition of your tires, windshield washer fluid level, brake fluid level and have ANY dash warning lights checked out by a pro before you leave.
