|Second Trip to Sam's Club with the Bike Trailer|
The lesson of the day is to bring the 2 smaller ice chests, instead of the large 7-day cold storage chest. This way, there is a chest for cold foods and one for frozen foods. Then bring the chests into the store using a shopping cart. And then...do NOT buy any more items then what will comfortably fit in the main compartment of the ice chests and cart, as in, nothing underneath or sticking out the top. A moderately loaded shopping cart is a fully loaded bike trailer. The trailer's maximum capacity is 160 pounds. I heard it was bursting at the seams and fully loaded.

You might notice and ask "where's the meat"? We buy our meat from Michigan family farm and have it butchered at Gary's Meat out of Union, Michigan. We will receive our spring lamb in the next few weeks and a pig later in the Fall.
