How are things on the "Adventure Front"? I am just getting caught up. Sounds like Adventure was the correct title for your thread in so many ways. I hope things are drying out for you. We've done the flood thing and it's not fun. Soggy stuff is so.... depressing... messy....? for lack of better terms.

those words all sound right to me.

 

WELL OFF AGAIN TO SC. YES THIS IS IT. MON TUES WED WE FINISH PACKING , MIKE COME HOME WED EVENING, THURSDAY THE ABF TRUCK COMES AND PARKS A LARGE TRAILER WHEREVER WE WANT IT. THURS NIGHT 4 VERY HARD WORKING TEENAGERS COME AND START LOADING. GO HOME AND COME BACK FRIDAY AND FINISH LOADING. SATURDAY AM WE ARE OFF. L-A-S-T T-R-I-P.

 

Mike wants to put the important stuff in first and then put stuff in according to need and worth. i don't think that will work. if you put furniture in first you will have a lot of wasted space. i think we should load boxes first, to the ceiling and tie them all down

 

we are taking 12 ft panels and 5 stall panels and 4 gates. i think they should go in first also they will be then crammed in by the boxes which will keep them from shifting or falling and then put stuff in according to need and worth, what do you guys think.?????

Furniture goes last!so you can pull out a chair and sit down and celebrate when you get there!!!

 

I would put the horse stuff in last too. Just in case you need it in a hurry.

 

If you are on any medication, make sure it doesn't get lost in all the packing (that is the old nurse in me talking, ignore her if you want, lol, she is a worry wart!) it can be a pain in the rear to have to get refills in the middle of moving. BTDT when my mom moved in with us, and it was only a two mile move!

 

Good Luck!

Every time I see a U Haul with the "Adventure in Moving" logo on the side I cringe. Too many moves in my life!

If things are not going to stay on the truck, then load however things fit best. Uniform sized boxes are easiest. You can sometimes get used ones from a moving company for bargain. Or look on the local craigs list for people getting rid of theirs. Buy a box of wrapping paper from the moving company; it is so much easier to use than inky newspapers.

And here's hoping the Adventure ends smoothly and you all live happily ever after!
