Preparation: Day 1

Today we went to Roleystone to pick up the Winnie. She’s sitting at the bottom of the driveway on the front verge waiting to be packed up for leaving. We have one important job to do – to refill at least one of the gas bottles. Otherwise, it’s just packing our clothes, swimming gear, gadgets and food. I have lists for each section.

At Roleystone the Winnie is under a good shade tree for most of the day, with enough full sun to keep the solar system working. It probably stays cool. Going out a few minutes ago (about 6.00 p.m.) it was about 35 degrees inside. All the hatches are open, the fan has been on, sucking hot air out, and the two little windows in the C are open as well. We do the best we can.
