All the gear in the back of the truck is covered with a tarp. While it helps keep things dry should it rain, its more common function is to keep down the amount of dirt and sand that gets into everything when driving the back roads and beaches of Baja. The tarp started to develop tears part way through the trip, and by the time we got back to Hopkins it was only covering about half the bins. When we unpacked the truck yesterday, Charlie place the tarp in the dumpster. Cheryl will be ordering a new one before the next road trip to Baja.
