Re: Packing and Moving

We only planned to take part of our household stuff to Germany and leave the rest in long-term storage. The Mover people said to separate all our stuff into "Germany" stuff and "Storage" stuff... I decided it would be too difficult to move stuff all around the house so we just labeled our items.

Then the movers came and with tremendous speed and efficiency they packed up all the Germany stuff first.

For all the Germany items, they loaded it into a shipping container. It ended up only being 3/4 full...important because we only get one shipping container to get all our stuff back to the U.S. too....evidently we can do a little shopping!

By Tuesday all the Germany stuff was on its way, and then they started on all the items that are to go into storage. They finished that by Wednesday night, and the house was cleaned out!

We sold our minivan to CarCash for a pittance, but they would buy it on the spot, so what do you do. On Thursday we finished cleaning out the house...donating food to the food bank at church and finalizing details. Our friend Kathy took us to the Airport and we were off!

Impressive Progress! Bet it feels good to be on the other side of that chore.
Can't wait to see pics from Erlangen. Enjoy the weekend.
