Preparing for the drive

What a bonus! Our friends the Lidbacks had a cartop carrier they graciously lent to us for the Big Trip. It is HUGE so I imagine we can fit all sorts of stuff in there and free up the back a bit for Ollie. The biggest items we have yet to transport are six chair cushions, the Weber grill and a double blow up mattress. So fingers crossed we can cram it all in!

Grant, Ollie and I leave a week from today; we'll head over to France via Eurotunnel, then make our way to Holland where we'll spend the night with Marcia's mom and dad, Jan and Tonny Van den Kieboom. Then it's off again Monday morning up through Germany to the port of Kiel, whereupon we will board the overnight ferry to Gothenburg. Then on Tuesday we'll make the final push across Sweden to the Wilhelmis! Rollin' rollin' rollin' RAWhide!

Hey, that's Sooz on the blog!
Any idea of how many "packages" (bags, grills, boxes etc) you'll have in an approx number of people? We may want to ask the taxi boat folks to NOT give you the smallest boat...if possible.
