ready for the road

i picked up our penske truck yesterday. it is gigantic. 22′ long. giant cab. great diesel rumble. it looked way too big.

this morning 2 guys from gentle giant arrived to help us pack the more fragile items and then load the truck. thursday night i didn’t see how we would keep them busy for 2 hours (the minimum). we had started loading the truck and it just didn’t seem like there was that much more to do. well, they left after almost 4 hours and we still have a bit more loading to do. they did an amazing job packing the buffet, hutch, dining room table, etc. and then loading the truck so that everything was well protected. and we need almost all of the 22′ of truck. if we had the 18 footer (the next smallest) we would have been in big trouble.
