Less than 2 weeks till we roll. Poop tank and second spare are mounted on the rear rack. Going to be chilly in the mountains, fired up the furnace today to check it out. Excursion had balance and rotate yesterday and vacuumed her out today. It will have an oil change next weekend, cleaned up and final visual. Going to fill a 5 gallon diesel can to take with us, not a lot but IF we have a need, it is there. Lisa is getting the menu together.
I can't really carry much more, If I had a pickup I could. I am going to see if I can fasten the can behind the propane tanks on the tongue, I really don't want to get diesel in the storage area, that would stink.5 gallons will get you at least 50 to 75 miles, and in a pinch that'll be enough.
We leave 1 week from tomorrow. I have 2 diesel cans ready to be filled and I have a place set up for them on the back rack between the tote tank and 2nd spare tire.
It is a crying shame I have to carry fuel, enough for about 100 miles, when not long ago diesel was plentiful and a lot cheaper.
