Each year as we make preparations to hit the road for seven months, we carefully cull through our stuff. Our general rule of thumb is that if we have carried it for a year without using it, it is history. We will give it away, store it, yard sale it or throw it away. Now, understand that this isn’t etched in stone. For example we will be working in a different area of Colorado this year, so, our load out will be a bit different. Here is a look.
Grandma’s kindling hatchet stays this year, as does Grandpa’s machete.
A wonderful Springtime shower caught us in the midst of sorting through the tool box.
The spare 30 pound propane tank has the old style fill valve.
And it has quite a bit of rust damage. It didn’t make the cut this year, we culled it.
Here is the new style propane tank, filled and loaded. You might note that it is covered with a burlap sack to keep it from direct sunlight exposure.
Four days and counting until it’s up anchor time !
