I seem to recall this lady from an earlier tour. This time, a larger panel and a larger goal. GO GIRL! :mrgreen:

She will be heading through Arizona and New Mexico.....maybe a bit north of our most esteemed members in those states.....if somebody meets her along the way a quick video and interview of her and her rig would be fun.
Marissa’s trek is mostly along less-traveled back roads, with some time spent on Highway 40 (Route 66), finding a motel each night.

Nice easy setup taking a panel and towing it from the back - my style as well.
