They Came, They Packed..... They Forgot Some Stuff

Tuesday the movers came to pack our stuff.  We kept some of our stuff separated for our trip since the movers are putting our things in storage for a few months until we find a place of our own.  We'll be house-sitting for the first few months to give us some time to sell our PEI house, & to find a suitable house in BC. 

These are the piles of things we are taking in our vehicle for the first few months.  It's a good thing we have a big van to put it all in!

The garage was in the process of being packed, with half the items being taken by the movers, & the other half being taken by us.

Surprisingly, the truck was only filled about 1/3 by our things, but that's mostly because most of our weight is books, which don't take up a whole lot of space.

This is how we'll be traveling through the States for the next 3 weeks.  PChad traded one of his motorcycles for it!  Not only do we have all the things we'll need for the next 3 months while our other furnishings are in storage, we have a car & 2 motorcycles!  It's a 15 passenger van, with only 1 row of seats, so it has lots of room for all the boxes, & even for the middle of our dining table, 6 folding chairs & the guitar that the movers forgot!
It's not too difficult to find our rig in the parking lot.  It's parked waaaay out back taking up about 6 parking spots!


  1. I think I found the "Beer St." thief!!! :) Happy moving!

  2. I was tempted since there was a sign when we were leaving, but I actually had one made instead
