If I plan to stay someplace for less than a week, then it doesn't seem worth it to set up and break down my full snowbird camp. So, I just keep everything loaded and live out of my car as though I'm in travel mode.
|Driver's seat is moved all of the way forward. Almost everything|
that was in the passenger seat (Part 2), is now in the driver's seat.
Also, the Dromedary Bags for water that were at the foot of the bed
are now in the front passenger seat. 4/16/15
|Passenger seat is now available for lounging (and office, |
changing room, video watching, bathroom, etc.). 4/16/15
|Hatch area with nothing over the foot of the bed except heavy coat|
for warmth and storage. (Sorry for sun glare.) 4/16/15
|Back seat area on passenger side: You can see the head of my bed,|
with pillow, that I use as a side table while lounging. 4/16/15
|Front passenger seat holds everything as described in Part 2, as well as|
a chair, small insulated bag, and my hat. 4/16/15
|All packed up and ready to leave the next morning from our|
Prescott National Forest camp where I stayed with friends for
about a month. 4/16/15
|Arrived at a Coconino National Forest camp to stay with other friends. I|
planned to be here for about 5 days; so, I didn't set up camp; but brought
out my chair to admire the view and visit with my camp mates. 4/18/15
Packing so much gear in the Prius, while living out of it, is rather like putting a jig saw puzzle together. You've got to get everything in there, make sure it's not too heavy on either side, while making sure that you can get to everything you might need for the duration.
