Towing Sally.

Sally is our Honda Fit.  We went back and forth a lot on whether or not to bring her with us, but eventually decided that we'd rather not unhook our entire house every time we wanted to run out for milk, so to speak, so we are towing the car.

Sally is an old family pal now - she's one of us.  The original Adventure Mobile - so I suppose she really does deserve to accompany us on our journey.

We spent an afternoon at Lowes hooking her up before we left.  Thought you might like to see some photos of that particular adventure.

We rented a U-Haul towing system for the trip to Michael's parents' house.  We have since made use of Craigslist to acquire our very own towing system.  Michael pulled the front off of Sally and installed the necessary equipment.  We'll be towing "four-down" with our own system, but this rental was "two-down".  I am going to like four down much better - it felt like driving Sally off of the edge of a cliff trying to pull into the tow buckets.  Michael also hooked up the electrical system in the bus to power the lights on the tow dolly.  This was what took most of the afternoon and resulted in a whole lot of sun exposure.

Jonah passed the time and kept cool by plugging his DS into the car adapter (shown here running to Sally) and sitting under Billy (the bus) to stay in the shade.

Finally on the road.
