Postponing our departure by 15 hours provided time for a few more finishing touches to be made on the trailer and for a few more hours of sleep. Now, though, the trailer is finished, packed, and on the road!
Half an hour from home, we stopped to adjust our cargo load. Seems to be driving better. Gas mileage not as good as we'd plan; we'll be making more stops. First stop for gas was in Chicago which led to a three hour detour through the city.
