Ready for a dry packing run!
Wednesday, August 15, 2018
We are doing a dry run today to see how and how long it will be to pack our car for vacation. DD does the packing while I fill everything and bring it out to the garage. This year she will drive as far as Sea Shell City, which is just south of the Mackinac Bridge. I will drive over the bridge and up to the cabin. We stop for a rest room break and to buy post cards and some special exfoliating scrub that they sell at the store. The only stop we will make until we get to Paradise.
I still need to clean the large cooler today as well. We are almost finished packing too! We unplug things when we are finished using them before we leave, as well as turn the water heater down and turn the water supply off to the washer. Even though I bought stainless steel hoses for the washer, I still do not want a flood in my basement. It is much easier to do things a little at a time than to drag race to get it all done in one day. We are very relaxed already.
