final preparations for the big adventure....

Spent Monday getting the hitch put on our new Subie...
Spent Tuesday getting the tow bar attached to our new Subie...
Spent a bizillion $$ doing all of this..but actually saved over $700 by buying the parts myself online & taking everything to the RV place in Carson City to install, they were doubtful that I had everything, but I did - woo hoo!
Also had the brackets installed for the Guardian Rockshield we purchased to protect our Subie from stuff kicked up from BeBe...
the new tow bar hook-up
our new hitch
This weekend Bill will install the auxiliary braking system and we will start to pack up & see what we do and do NOT have room for to take outta here!  Another trip down to storage, for sure, to drop of some unneeded things and pick up some others we thing may be useful.  I think we are going to be ok, space-wise, which I am pretty shocked about. We may actually have room for a box load of firewood & I think we are going to purchase a small gas BBQ because we have really used our gas grill (from home) here most every night. We trashed our camp stove in 6 weeks but luckily had a brand new one in storage we had never used - I actually think we will get more use out of this one, so that's cool. 

I am getting a bit nervous....Bill has only  5 days left in the office so this weekend is going to be intense, making sure he has everything he needs & preparing for both of us to be in this tiny space 24/7.
