Christmas Oregon Trip

I'm going back to Oregon this Christmas to get what I hope will be the last of the bee equipment. There should be a number of things still remaining such as a bunch of deep boxes, twenty queen excluders (which I won't need) and some other miscellaneous things.

I'll be pulling my little home built trailer back across the US empty and bringing it back full of equipment. The last time I did this was last summer when I brought five hives, a rototiller, a table saw and other miscellaneous stuff back. It took our Toyota Corolla from about 35 mpg to less than 20 on the highway. Hopefully this year, we will do a little bit better.
