Moving Out

We had planned to leave Grand Junction on Monday (June 7), but had so much work that we weren't able to leave until Tuesday. Those last few days we worked non-stop and if it hadn't been for the help of some wonderful friends, I think we would still be packing and cleaning! Several people stepped up to help us pack boxes, load the truck, watch Trip, make meals, clean, and more. We cannot thank them enough!

This was Trip the morning we left.

Trip in the moving truck. He had some touch moments, but overall did very well during such a long journey.

We left Junction around noon on Tuesday. It was very slow going with a full truck pulling the van. We arrived in Boise at 2:30 in the morning, slept for a few hours, and got back on the road late morning. After another day of slow driving, we finally made it to Lakeview around 8 on Wednesday evening.

We weren't able to get into our house on Thursday, which ended up being a blessing because it gave us a day to rest. We took possession of the house on Friday afternoon. Saturday morning, a group of people from the church came over and helped us unload the truck. It was amazing how fast it got unloaded considering how long it took to load. We are very thankful for our shop right now because we were able to put the boxes in there and bring them in a few at a time. There is still plenty of work to be done, but things are coming along little by little.
