Today has been a real work day, starting with plowing the driveway with the Kubota and then shoveling sand — it’s a long driveway when you are lugging pails of sand. Then, going up to the Town garage to refill the buckets for tomorrow.
I worked on loading the truck with bikes, kayak, solar panel, and an assortment of books so that I can run Vitesse Press while on the road. Meanwhile, Mary made dozens of trips from the house to the Airstream and got clothing and food in place.
Then I hooked up the rig and with some maneuvering, I got it around the ledge outcrop (which I hit last year while leaving) and straightened out so that I could back it up to the garage for final loads.
We’ll see what the morning brings — more snow is forecast and it’s going to be frigid and windy. Both Mary and I remarked that this preparation was tougher than the last couple of years — we’re pretty tired but planning to launch early dark thirty.
