All packed and ready

We leave tomorrow before sun up to go get the new Rockwood. We don't have to leave that early, but it's cool, less traffic and Sweet Wife likes to start early on long trips.

OK, I don't think another thing can be crammed into the truck. Between wanting the bed cover closed and the hitch in the middle of the bed, the cargo space in back is WAY reduced!

The tarp will keep things dry if it rains tonight. The last remaining space behid the drivers seat is for the camera bag which I loaded after I took these pictures!

Don't laugh, some of you put this much stuff and more in you TV and you already have your trailer!!

Off to bed...will post again in a few days if time and wi-fi allow.

We're here!

We're bedded down about 45 minutes from RVW. Tomorrow is the big day. There was no real traffic and a plesant cloud cover all the way up during the 10 hour drive.

Now the part that bowled me over today. With two people, all that stuff and the cruise set at 65 or 70 depending on speed limits...the F-150 got 19.23 MPG!!! I figured it twice and wondered how slow I'd have to go to break 20 or 21.

The bad news...I-75 is the roughest strech of road I have been on in a long, long time. I am NOT looking forward to towing on that bumpy strip of asphalt. And I get to tow through several nasty construction zones on my first time out...fun.

Tomorrow...we take delivery of the trailer!! And that will make it all worth while!
