Recap: Moving Day

Here are a few photos from last Friday, our official moving day.

Gosh, we have a lot of stuff. Despite vigorous efforts to down-size via craigslist, ebay, and multiple trips to goodwill, we still managed to fill a moving van-sized box.
PODS has a pretty nifty device, called the Podzilla, that unfolds from a flatbed truck, and picks up the packed container. Here is the driver tipping Puddy slightly to purge the collected rainwater from the roof.

The driver uses a joystick to maneuver Podzilla into place. The hydraulic system then lifts the PODS onto a flatbed truck and away it goes..off to Washington!

Oh, our little casita. We will miss you! You are too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer but you had lots of character, a great yard for Bailey, and a bountiful orchard.

So very empty.

It wasn't until we arrived in the middle of a snowstorm in Oregon that the bikes on top of the car looked out of place. I'm sure drivers in the Pacific Northwest didn't much like being passed by a two wheel drive car with road bikes and California plates. Those damn crazy Californians, don't they know it's snowing here?!?!
Ready for the grand adventure! Goodbye California!
