We store the Cricket in our garage. so packing for our next trip really starts shortly after returning from the prior trip. We return towels and sheets back to the Cricket to await our next trip. Typically a few days before we leave, we start loading for the trip. We put groceries into the camper as we return from the store, and pack gear as it is ready. We also check the air pressure in the tires, plug in the battery to charge, and take a quick inventory of anything we may need to replenish. On our travel day, we load pillows, clothes, toiletries, and last minute items. We typically do this before work so when we get home all that is left is to hitch up, plug in brakes, chains, break away cable, lock the doors and go. If we do our preparation correctly, we can be on the road in 15 minutes. We keep a note on our laptop that serves as a checklist to make sure we don’t forget anything.
