4th and final trip. Really!

There it is! EMPTY! At last!

There it is! EMPTY! At last!

After the 3rd trip, I was pretty confident that we could pack everything else in this last trip… Doug was adamant that we need to do a 5th and possibly 6th… what a natural pessimist and exaggerator he is… while I continue to blissfully ignore his take on the matter.

Our trusty hauler.

A picture is a thousand words… 🙂 And YES! We did it! Barely…

We had to dump some stuff that are not so valuable and unlikely that we will ever use. .. like a big enamel stew pot, card boxes, plastic crates that were falling apart… etc..

And we had to overload the roof…
This is one full load, but it was not really that heavy. Last trip was more heavy, altho less full.

Before we roll away from safkeep storage for the last time.

We were definitely very tired from a long day of packing… with Doug bugging me to stop for the night, we did stop at a motel 6 at Stockton. It was 1130pm when we got into our room.

Next day at 0645hrs, some of our straps were cut. The guitar on top of the trailer is gone… but fortunately nothing else. But I hate to lose things like that… so I had to do the right thing, make the effort to call the manager to the scene, go online to file a police report, add this to the crime stats. Why do this? I guess it help me get closure… somehow.

Counting our blessings, we did 4 trips, no accidents, no scratches on Fordie, lost only 1 1969 Estella guitar… maybe it was worth $300 on eBay… (I doubt it). … and now everything is here! We are set for a new life in Port Townsend!
