One and a half tons...

The other day our moving cubes arrived. It was a bit like playing tetris getting everything we own into two of these cubes. In the end, everything fit, and we feel good about what we are bringing west with us.

After looking at this picture, my fun fact is this: The weight limit for each cube is 1500 lbs. That means the total capacity for two cubes is 3000 lbs or 1.5 tons (even packed tight we are nowhere near the weight limit). In the foreground of the photo is a 2175 sticker from the Appalachian Trail. When I hiked the trail last year my pack weight was down to 8.5 lbs. Weird contrast.

Anywho, we fly out Sunday morning. The puppies go tomorrow. Speaking of which, here is a current picture of Benton. 11 months and 70 lbs. He and Roxy have been thoroughly freaked out by all of the action at the house the past couple of days...including the absence of furniture!

8.5 lbs vs. 3000 lbs
2175 miles vs. 2306 miles (DC to Santa Monica).

when all the data is in, i believe you will be happy everywhere the winds take you, but we'll still miss you on the right coast.
