Packing up

Everything from the patio and under the rig is packed up.  The tote will come inside to pack inside stuff into and the step stool is needed because I'm too short to put the awning up or down without it.

 Working on the inside now.  I'm thinking  I'll pack most of my dishes away and pad the glasses.  I need to get jugs of filtered water and groceries as I'm not taking the car with me.  Sort of a trial run for boondocking, but with full hookups.  Work with me here.

I bought tire covers yesterday, and both the Good Sam campground directory and Next Exit.  As such I know where the first Cracker Barrel and Pilot gas stations are located, as well as where the Walmarts are.  I'm sticking close to civilization this trip.  It is a process.


  1. You don't have a GPS other than the one built into the car, do you?

  2. My GPS is a separate unit. Thanks for the reminder to move it over. The book with the exit info helps me pace myself ahead of time.

  3. When the time comes to go Boondocking in the desert you'll want the towed. You'll find the perfect place to set up camp then use the car to explore the area before moving to another site. Good Luck on your Test Run!
    Be safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  4. Enjoy your first outing, and with good preparation all will go wonderful. We don't have a gps, but plan our routes on Google maps.
    The trial run will be a learning curve for you. The Pilot/flying J's are our favourite, most of the Flying j's have rv fuel lanes not many Pilots.
    Have fun.
