So Logan left at 5:45 this morning for his 2 day trip to Hamilton, Ontario to start a new job. Didn't know he'd be the first to go so far away and he's only 18!! I know - lots of kids do it :)
Obviously Logan would need a bed - so on the weekend Luke and Brad built this box (minus the springs) for Logan. All he has to do is put it together again once he's there and purchase a mattress.
We spent the last 3 days getting him ready. Loaded all his tools and tool boxes first. Then we knew how much other room we had - which wasn't much! He should have bought a bigger truck. Oh - well, we did manage to squish everything into the corners.
Can't forget to check the tires with the help of Heather (girlfriend).
The black plastic bags are his clothes. I bought some heavy duty clear plastic bags, we put his clothes in them and then used the vacuum to suck out all the air. This way the bag was only about 1/4-1/3 as big!! Don't know if they will stay that flat all the way to Hamilton, but it doesn't matter. Everything is under cover.
I would have taken a photo of him driving away, but all you would have seen were his tail lights shining in the dark. Here's hoping for a safe trip!
