    1. Having somebody move you is way easier.
    2. My wife is right I am a packrat...even the moving company kept asking me if I wanted this and that packed cause it looked like trash.:D
    3. Driving 600 miles on Swampers is no fun.
    4. I have way too much stuff....I just found out while unpacking I have 7 coolers and 7 gas cans?? I have no idea where they all came from.
    5. If you want to find something important look in the box you would never thing it was in.

    Finally mostly unpacked and settled got some bookshelves and stuff to put back together, but only about 5 boxes left.

    Funny story that happened the first day we were here. My wife said my truck wouldn't fit in the garage so I proved her wrong. I had almost 1/4" of clearance at the roof just rubbed the little rubber flap on the doorframe. Ha Ha I'm right..then I unpacked about 500 pounds of stuff out of it. Scrape...:mad:
    so technically I was right it fit "in" the garage, but wouldn't come out. I think she laughed at me for a whole day after that. I had to take the trim off of the garage so it wouldn't scrape also ripped of my CB antenna:mad: , but now it will fit in AND out with no weight in it:woot: :woot:

    P.S. the air here in Cali is just wonderful:crazy:

    Why didn't you just let the air out of the tires?
