The small things first......

 7:06 am - Wednesday - March 27th - GNHS - 53° F, humidity 74%, wind 3 mph out of the southeast.....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 77°  F.  On this date in 2013 TLE and I were in Aiken, GA, the home of Fred Astaire, and William 'The Refrigerator' Perry (Chicago Bears) having lunch at Aiken Brewing Company......

When I begin putting tools away, and rolling up the putting surfaces you know it's not long until we haul anchor, and I've got to get it all done by April 3rd.  Did I ever say I have too much stuff?  Well, I do have too much stuff, and we're going to have to get pretty creative to make it all fit, and insert the VW.  I don't believe TLE would appreciate having to drive the VW all the way back to!

We were up kind of early Tuesday, but not because I needed to organize the trailer.  We went to bed early Monday night because we were tired from the round trip drive to Poway, and, therefore, woke up early.  At any rate I began the slow process of bagging up all of my large tools for another reposition.  I worked at it most of the day, taking occasional breaks, but I got a lot done....

All of my sockets are stowed

The Bluetti and solar panels are stowed

All tools, and power tools are towed

Putting greens and small artificial turf pieces are cleaned and rolled up.

Without this Rubber Maid container, which will sit on the tongue of the trailer (strapped down, of course) I would not have enough room for everything....this is what we call getting creative!

Portable driving 'range' is down

Camp chairs and anti gravity chairs are stowed

....we've got a long way to go, but it is a start.  Now that most of the small stuff is stowed, the bigger stuff will go fast!

We did take a 1 mile walk just before I began work on the trailer covering the distance averaging 3.4 mph....not bad for a one week layoff.  My foot feels great, by the way.... was our 64th one mile walk of the winter.  The day seemed to pass quickly, and soon it was almost 5 pm, and time for a shower.  Day one of packing was a success with us getting everything done we had planned to do.  A lot more yet to do, but plenty of time in which to do it all!

Thanks for stopping by!
