...so Happy New Year.
For the last 5 days we packed everything from the high rise apt in downtown PDX and car-moved it to our new place [reason being-Uhaul wouldn't rent a truck to us unless we provided chains for 4 of its tires. They don't sell, rent or install chains, and I quote "Ahhh, they should run you 200 bucks or so, and after using them you can, I dunno, sell 'em on eBay or something" Pass, Thanks], and then once Odot allowed, we got the rental truck and over 3 days loaded it and unloaded it [rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat] and then... we were finally in. Big thanks to my unsuspecting buddy Josh, who came out to visit us from NYC and didn't realize we had plans for him that went beyond mere hanging out and catching up on things [wink].
Amy & Chloe rocked hard with the unpacking [pretty much looks like we have resided here for a year or two] and even Santa cooperated by throwing an X-Mas extension at Chloe and delivering gifts over Saturday night that were opened and enjoyed Sunday morning.
Being in our own place is fantastic. And while we are absolutely exhausted, we are dug-in... finally [not to mention, no more Ramp-Riding for me].
Keep Ridin'... Always
