Tim loves Spam. All flavors of Spam. I knew that if I wanted to make sure he was happy to dine on the boat there better be Spam. I think I nailed it.
The rest of the stuff on the boat falls into 3 categories. Tools to fix the boat, rigging to tie the boat up to docks & locks, and kitchen crap. Guess who is in charge of which areas?
This boat is 25 foot long. It’s sort of like a smallish camper…that can sink. Everything that comes on the boat has to “earn its real estate” which means it better do more than one thing. And we have learned to use vertical space on the walls which means we are the king and queen of Command hooks. Anything that can live on a Command hook has a spot. You can look forward to a Command hook tour in the future. It will be epic.
We leave in a very few days. Then anything we forgot will either be purchased somewhere along the way or we will simply use what we have. Yes, I packed the can opener. I checked…twice.
Tim and I started our Great Loop Adventure on 9-10-2017 in Ottowa, Illinois. We put the boat on a trailer and drove 9 hours from our home in South Dakota to Heritage Harbor Marina in Ottowa to put her in the water. Tim's brother, Dan, drove the truck and trailer back to our house. Thanks Dan!
