Tajita has a diesel engine with a six speed manual transmission. I think the last time I owned a manual transmission car was in the 80s. When we get ready to leave we go though our checklist. Slides in, jacks up, airbags full, antenna down, fans off. Oh Yeah, we don't have any of those things. Just start up and drive.
Most of this last week we have spent outfitting Tajita. We did have her tricked out by Phill, with an extra battery and a 220V inverter, two solar panels, security locks, an awning, two built in propane tanks that can be filled anywhere, and a backup camera. Still we needed sheets, cooking stuff, etc., etc.
We had to drive to a small town to pay for our insurance that Phill arranged for us. Here is our agent's office on the left.
