Its been hot here in Terre Haute. We haven’t had this many consecutive 100+ degree days since 1936.. In other words, not in our life time. Today it is only 93 degrees. So, we’re ready to head to the mountains. Melinda has been busy stocking the camper and Chris has been busy with the outside of the camper and the truck.
We washed and waxed the camper, filled the water tank, checked the tires and it was ready to go.
Next we washed and waxed the truck. This thing is a beast. It has so much power. We hardly feel it pulling the Airstream. Nice sound system and a crew cab for our “stuff.”
Finally we started to assemble all of the “stuff” that goes into the bed of the truck. In front is a generator, along with extra water jugs, tools, gasoline, chairs, etc. It reminds me of all of the supplies Shackleton took along on his expedition to the pole. If you get a chance read “Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage.” Men were much tougher back then.
This blog is an experiment. I think you can sign up to receive future blogs. If not, we’ll get the hang of it while we’re traveling. Off to Colorado and then to Wyoming.
Two Airstream Travelers,
Chris and Melinda
