The shelf is almost done!
Because a good part of our trip will be camping or cabin-ing in a different place each evening we want to make it as easy as possible to set up camp. We decided that we will make a shelf in the back driver's side of the leading van. Under the shelf will be the big tent and in plastic bins will be bedding/air mattresses/pillows. On the shelf will be tent poles, camp chairs,containers holding groceries, misc. camping stuff
The shelf had it's final fitting in the car and the legs are attached. The edge next to the back seat needs to be attached and covered. This edge is to make sure the containers on the shelf do not slide off sideways in case of a sharp turn. I am planning to attach a pouch on that edge for computer storage while riding.
Tomorrow the shelf should be totally done and I will begin working on the Kitchen "food box".
3 months before lift off!
