Today, my mood was lifted when I started taking things up to the Alfa for our upcoming trip.
It's been so long since we took a trip that I don't remember where things should go.
I won't do any serious packing until Saturday afternoon.
If I take things up sooner we are sure to need them at the house! The dining room table has become the staging area.
I want to turn the refrigerator on Saturday night so I can load it at home Sunday. For other trips I have put cold foods in a cooler and loaded it into the refrigerator when we got to our destination. When we went to San Diego we didn't use the refrigerator for the first week because we were parked on the street by our daughter's house. But this trip will start with a five hour drive, and I have frozen things.
Saturday morning - Last loads of wash, grocery shop and Costco stop.
Saturday afternoon - Load, empty water, Craig check tire air etc.
Sunday morning - Breakfast at home. Bring Alfa down to front drive. Fill fresh water tank and load cold food, pillows, and anything else not taken up to the Alfa on Saturday.
Departure - Sunday by 11:00 AM. Lunch at a rest stop.
Shingletown KOA for dinner!
