I am not staying on the Island this year. Is there a public place/lot to park my truck and trailer while this is going on?

I can't tell if this feeling I have is excitment that this is my first DOA, and it's only 2 weeks away, or panic that it's only 2 weeks away and I have a ton of shit to do.

Can I still add a passenger?

I really don't want to make a 6+ hour drive alone, and I am still trying to fill the seat.

Since I have not gone before do we stop on the trail to eat or just grab a bite to eat when we can along the route. I know that sat night there is dinner but what does everyone do the rest of the time?

We make a number of scenic stops on the trail, we usually eat at one of those stops. Whenever you get hungry, really.

All packed up, but my trailer lights quit working

All the clearance lights work, but the two stop/tail lights do not, harness checks out until somewhere in the middle of the 20ft tube it runs in.

In the morning I'll probably say F*** it, and run a temporary harness to get it working.

See everyone there late, probably midnight, tomorrow.
