Trip preparation part 1

Over the last week, we have been very busy preparing the truck for the trip.  The biggest challenge was attaching the expanded metal on the windows of the truck topper to try to reduce the risk of theft.  Josh spent hours cutting and bending the metal to get it to fit just right.  We also started building our sleeping platform.

After a few grueling days of truck work we headed to Tucson, Arizona for a quick break and to visit friends before heading out on our Journey.   We had a fantastic time visiting with old friends and soaking up a little desert sun.

When we came back to San Diego, we had a package from Zeiss waiting for us.   Our new optics are amazing! Thank you again to Zeiss for providing us with optics for our expedition!  We were so excited that we ran out the next morning to give them a try.
