I'd like to think this is a compliment, but I'm not sure. One thing is for sure, though, we've astounded people all along our travels. From the very first forklift driver who loaded our container on the back of his flatbed all the while trying to keep his forklift from toppling, to the moving company who helped us unload that same container today, we've gotten a nod or two of respect for how well we've packed.
|Our Relocube safely stowed, no forklifts were seriously injured in the process.|
Heavy is one way to describe it, but we've also had bellhops comment that we certainly know how to pack a suitcase. And the unloading help today compared our packing job with the best packers in their company.
Taxi drivers expressed surprised we could fit in all that we did.
Passersby in train terminals marveled and people behind us in line at customs gossiped about our crazy move cross-country by way of train and overnight vacationing in Canada.
|Because doesn't this look like the most comfortable way to move cross-country?|
But on the eve of my birthday, which also happens to be the last night of hotel living after four weeks of thirteen different beds, let me tell you that I am very glad not to have a job as a professional packer.
I get plenty of packing assignments as it is.
