The ordeal has started in earnest....
Packing has begun.
We emptied out the two attic storage areas and put that stuff in the now
vacant garage bay.
The yellow POS has been banished to Lloyd's for the duration, with a threat
of pink paint looming large.
There are boxes everywhere!
I am hiding in the shop trying to finish a manifold project for a customer,
and get Bud's truck ready for him to pick up tomorrow.
Then the shop starts getting packed.
That'll take three weeks all by itself.
More as this process unfolds..

We want to move, but before we even go looking, I want to make this place
more presentable. For the hell of it Ellen cleaned out and sorted out the
stuff in the garage. I cannot even imagine what it would take to packup what
is in the garage, much less the office. My sympathies.
The prospect of moving is scary for me. I have too much crap. I know that
Texas, especially the Houston area, is not likely to be a place we can
inhabit long term, and real estate in more desirable areas of the country is
increasing in price as fast as I am getting older, and the present would be
the best time to start
preparing for a move, but I am too busy & too lazy to make the effort.
That grueling process is one of the reasons that this group has not been
graced by the presence of Bo Markham in recent months. Preparing a new
residence, getting the old place ready to sell, & packing & moving all of
the stuff can keep you busy full-time+ for months when you have a large
amount of cars, equipment ,& parts.
I think that it can be safely stated that you have much more than "too
much crap." I have never seen so many cars "resting" in so small a space...
(And I have a lofty goal of cutting back to just two cars!)
I plan on staying where I am for the time being. the rent is right, and I
just moved in a 105 pound 27 inch color tv last night.
girlfriend and her dad both agree "we don't wanna move THAT again anytime
FWIW: When preparing to leave England, I moved from a three bedroom
house w/ garage into a one-bedroom apartment.
Boxes crowded the LR so that I couldn't see the TV without craining.
Over five months, through normal work and one eye operation, I whittled
things down to something reasonable so that it all fit into a 10' x 10'
x 8' container, IIRC.
There was a paper, bottles and metal recycling collection complex
nearby, which helped.
