How have you prepared your SMB for some summer fun?

Now that the snow is finally melting in Wyoming I am all loaded up and ready for some summer fun.

Cleaned out the winter dust bunnies, changed the single group 24 house battery to a group 27 battery, and loading in the clothes and food. The first trip is next weekend.

Mac, I knew you had a fabulous rig, but I didn't know you were such a gearhead.

I got a new house battery and new 200W panels up top. Now I have to find a destination!

Cool trailer!

Let's see...once I get my battery issue figured out, I'll be adding solar on my roof. Hopefully I can get that done before Memorial Day camping.

I didn't think Mac and gearhead could be used in the same sentence.

Seriously, nice trailer Mac. Did you sell your old 'toy' trailer?

Both tires on the mountain bike are flat. That ought to tell you something. It's wishful thinking.

I sold the toy trailer the day I put it on Craigslist. When I saw how tiny the trailer was when I hooked it up to take it to Salt Lake, I couldn't believe I actually bought it. The adventure trailer is much more manly.

I washed the van on the outside and got the snow tires off. Mrs dhally will help wash the inside.

Re: How have you prepared your SMB for some summer fun?

we camped 3 weekends in feburary, none in march, first 2 weekends in april and going up for trip 6 this weekend. its been fun, but i would have rather had the snow to board on our winter here was absolutely pathetic. we drove roads in feb that should still be closed today.

anymore, at least around here, theres no counting on weather like you used to be able to. so we just go with the flow these days.
