Just a quick update....

I adjusted the hanger bar in the locker up a couple inches and was able to take a "closet organizer sweater shelf" from walmart and fit it in. That added 3 more shelves for cloths. Without measuring, I think I can fit another in there as well. I bought a canvas one for ease of fit and ventilation.

I like the space bag idea too, that will be great for linen and towels. Not only saving space, but keeping things for smelling of diesel and

Think about your provisions, too, Matt. Take *everything* out of the cardboard boxes from the supermarket and rebag in double ziplocs. (pasta, flour, rice) or condensation will turn it to mold in no time. Cardboard can also harbor bugs which hatch and spoil your food and appetite. Some things also work in plastic cannisters, we like ziplocs when possible because they don't take up space when empty the way rigid containers do. Inexpensive plastic kitchenware from Target seems to work just as well as the pricey stuff from West Marine etc if you can forgo the nautical theme painted on the rims of your dinnerplates <*grin*>

Congrats on beginning your great adventure!
