Slowly But Surely

April 21, 2009; 8:00 p.m. I am down toward the end of preparations here, but the last preparations are taking the most time. That is attributable to me. I get slower every day and apparently have already adopted a much slower pace generally.

Last Sunday Rick came up to the farm and completed wiring some 12-volt plugs into the camper. They look like cigarette lighter plugs. All kinds of different appliances can be purchased to plug into these deals.

More importantly, we finished wiring the solar panel so that it can be used to charge the 12-volt battery. This gives me some huge flexibility as to where I can camp.

Yesterday, I packed in the morning and knocked off in the afternoon to drive into Des Moines. I had dinner with Robyn, the new acquaintance, and drove home. Delightful. Good for lots and lots of laughs, but I was worthless today. I got only a small bit more packing done but did get a 4+ mile run in. Tomorrow big time packing will be done.

It looks like a Saturday departure now.
