Moving day

As much as I hoped for a full-service relocation package, in this economy, that just wasn't happening. So to any kind-hearted souls who wouldn't mind lending a hand, I'd be happy for a bit of help. Here's the plan:

Loading the truck in Boise will take place Wednesday, 31 December at 2:00 p.m. Almost everything is in the garage, boxed up, and ready to load. If we have a half dozen people show up, it will be a quick job.

Unloading the truck in Draper will take place Saturday, 3 January at 9:00 a.m. Again, if there are a half dozen people, we may be done by 10:00. I lobbied for a later start so we could get out for a dawn patrol beforehand, avy conditions permitting, but the boss won't tolerate any delays. That being said, if we work fast and get done quickly, I've been given the tentative green light to go out for a ride or ski after we finish. Besides, moving boxes and furniture is good strength training and will help build your core muscles.

The move in is made possible by my kind neighbors who came over yesterday afternoon with their snowblowers and cleared out the last of the snow drift that occupied the front half of my driveway. I'll post some pictures later, but at 6,287 feet and with the recent blizzard, you can imagine what it was like. That drift was rock hard on Saturday when I tried to remove it. I thought for sure I was going to need to rent a bobcat to get rid of it. But with the warmer weather softening things up and some serious snow removal equipment, it was gone in a matter of minutes. Thank you!

If you'd like to help but don't know where I live/will live, shoot me an email at skibikejunkie at gmail dot com, and I'll send directions.
