Moving Van Arrives

Posted by: Rick

Today, Lynne and I drove separate trucks into Laramie to meet the moving van at 9:00. Our goods were delivered to a storage facility there. We left a little early because it was raining and spitting snow. Here is what the trucks looked like once we (finally) got to town.

All our stuff arrived with only one item damaged. The above photos were taken afterwards, at WalMart where we stopped for a quick shop. We also brought a few items back to the cabin including some kitchen stuff, a bookshelf, a dresser and a cuckoo clock.

It was "relatively" dry on the way back home. We stopped for gas and I did a quick wash on the trucks.

Oh, and we picked up mail both going out (yesterday's) and coming back in (today's)!

PS: To all of you who read my post to the Sand Creek Park Facebook page yesterday about Brubaker Ln and Sand Creek Road being graded and smooth? No longer true.

Wow—-dirty truck!!!What an excursion!  Glad your belongings made it ok for the most part.

Hope spring comes soon for you guys.  We are flirting with summer weather already here in the south.  Not too bad, yet…

Yikes! I can only imagine from the state of those trucks what the drive in must have been like. Glad most things arrived safe and sound!
