Packing

Today we packed and packed and packed. We leave on January 1st for over 3 weeks. We have cleaned every corner of the cabins, and we have tried to think of every possible reason to pack or leave something behind. I have a feeling I will have brought too many things, extra heater, extra dishes, extra this, that. But we will learn. This is our first big voyage. The first few days of this trip are going to be VERY cold, but we are told things should improve as we move west. We wanted to get as much done today as possible so that we could relax a little, let our minds wander as we think of those last little things to take care of.

  • Stop the mail.
  • Pack propane heater just in case we end up somewhere without electricity.
  • Double check security hitch locks.
  • Dog leash (we forgot that last time because the dog just jumps into the truck).
  • Pantry food items.
  • Clothes.
  • Outdoor kitchen items.
  • Toiletries.
  • Turn off all water on the property and drain lines.
  • Turn off electricity - empty refrigerators.
  • Consolidate vehicle insurance...  just got married!
That's the meat of it!  Let's GO!!!!
