SOL 21 busy Saturday

I was up early this morning because we planned to drive 400 miles so my husband could attend a swap meet for automotive parts. We had worked the previous 2 days preparing for the trip, doing laundry and getting things ready. On Thursday after work, I helped him rewire the lights on his trailer. He tried them out and they worked perfectly. On Friday I helped him load tools, spare tire, and a scooter. He tested the trailer lights again just to make sure they were ok. Then this morning, I saw him driving up and down the driveway again. I wondered what he was doing, went out to check and he told me the lights were not working properly. He tried a couple of tricks but was too worried the lights might not work properly on the trip. So we started unloading everything, unhook the trailer and reload what he needed inside the Yukon. We left about an hour after our planned departure time, which was ok because we had fog for the first hour of our trip. We actually got to our destination in time to walk around the swap meet for a couple of hours. He will go back to the swap tomorrow and meet a cousin. I'm planning to relax at the hotel for a while before meeting them for lunch.

  2. It sounds like, despite the late start, you two are having an enjoyable weekend. Sometimes it's nice to just get away for a day or two.

    1. You can't imagine how many parts he has, but I think he was looking for Items for a specific car he is currently working on.
