We’ve got the car, we’ve got the trailer, we’re in the painful process of packing up the house, and then it’ll be time to hit the road.

Max’s first birthday is today, and he’s recently started walking, so we’ve got to look at how long he can comfortably travel in the car at a time, what toys are essential and what can be jettisoned (same goes for our stuff). What clothes we need and how to keep him warm.

Also on the to do list is getting an inverter, new batteries for the car, new fire extinguishers, some form of clothing storage, and stocking up on non perishables and cooking up a batch of meals to vacuum pack and freeze.

Oh and there’s all of 12 days left for all of this, plus fitting in a birthday party for Max!
