I use these blog posts as a way to take notes for myself, as well as a way to stay in touch with y'all. I really do look back on them as I prepare for future trips. And the process gets easier every time.
Yesterday I took advantage of a shuttle drive from a friend, and brought the rig up to where I live. Turned on the fridge so it could cool down, and put tools away from the recent repairs and maintenance. This morning (Sunday) it's plenty cold. Maybe a little too cold, but that'll take care of itself as I put food in it. Today I'll drive it over to the supermarket and buy a week's worth of food and put it directly in the rig from the parking lot.
A couple of loads of laundry today and that stuff can be packed.
Tomorrow (Monday) is D (for departure) Day.
Organizing the electronics has to start happening now. The laptop, the iPad, the Kindle, the iPhone. Cables, cables, cables. The Verizon hot spot. The GPS receiver for the iPad. More cables. Can it be that I only own ONE Apple Lightning cable?
And so it goes. I may add to this post with comments as the day goes on.
