It’s T-minus about 11 and a half hours until my planned departure for my Western Road Trip 2006.
I’ve got my car about 90% packed – just have to throw the last few things in before I roll in the morning. I had hoped to have a luggage rack to mount on the trunk, but the company making one specifically for the Solstice has been experiencing delays – it was supposed to be ready at the end of May, but as of today there’s still no confirmation.
So in order to make the room I need for all my stuff I ended up removing the passenger seat. That made lots of usable room, so I’m good to go. I just have to ignore the warning about having the airbag serviced – don’t worry, it’s just the passenger airbag that I had to disconnect when removing the seat.
Now that I see what I have packed, I don’t think the luggage rack would have been such a good thing anyway. What I really need is a little trailer to pull behind…
