We made it to California, and have been enjoying family and friends, we even had a turkey dinner! Yum! We packed up all our belongings (mostly household things like pots & pans & dishes) into this moving van/shipping container, finally relieving our friends, Bill & Judy Ostrom, of the burden in their barn! A word to the wise – if you try to save money by buying cheap storage bins, you will lose that money and more to replacing rat damaged items later! We learned that the hard way. We had learned that cardboard is delicious fodder for rats earlier on, but they also make their way into plastic containers that don’t quite seal properly. Oh well, it’s just stuff.
We will be travelling around California until June 1st, when we will fly to Indiana – whoo hoo – home of Josh & family, where we will settle for the year.
