“Honey, it would be really great if you could put pine straw in the front bed.” Thus says the wife after its already getting hot outside and our daughter has taken our Outback for the afternoon. Why does the Outback matter? It’s the only vehicle in the fleet with a hitch for towing the utility trailer. Never fear, WRX is here!

A towel to protect the paint and a bit of paracord to hold the bales in place. I suppose it would be nice if I had a basket, but the rails will do for now.

Two miles later and everything is still secured. Now to get the weed cloth down and spread the straw before the afternoon thunderstorms roll in. I might not make it.
