We are leaving today to (hopefully) close on a property in North Carolina. We go every year for a month at a time to WW kayak and pay through the nose for rental property. WE figured – might as well buy a place.
Anyway, we “loaded up the truck” as best we could, using a lot of add on equipment.
The first is a piece we have used for transporting our kayaks – the Adarac system. We got this to transport our kayaks because it can take up to four.
My wife then purchased two types of waterproof bags.
One is a 20 cubic foot ROLA waterproof bag, shown below. (It is supposed to be raining all the way from Texas to NC).
The other is a (I dare you to pronounce this) 20 cubic foot FIVKLEMNZ Car Cargo Carrier Bag, shown below.
We were going to put boards 24 inches wide in the bottom of the bags so they could sit on top of the Adarac, but my wife decided to get a roof rack for the Adarac, the ROLA Roof Rack.
She also bought an extension.
This is what the get up looked like without the bags on top.
We did have a problem, though, with what to do with our Phatcat. We had planned on putting it into our Curt Cargo basket, but squishing it down enough was becoming a problem.
So, we managed to get it into the bed of the truck and, with a lot of maneuvering, got everything we needed into the bed of the truck and on top. (When we looked at everything we thought – what a great we to dispose of a body.)
Here is what it looked like as we prepared to leave.
I added the chair for fun because I thought of the Beverly Hillbillies.
We got everything on Amazon. Why? Best prices and free shipping. Some of this stuff is really heavy and shipping can cost a bundle. Here are the links.
