    Ah, something I have done at least a dozen times and will NEVER do again

    (unless this place gets hit by a tornado).

    That looks like a boat dock but I know that's not a boat at the end. That looks like a lot of work

    I hate moving so much I don't do it. We have lived in this house for the last 35 years.

    Headed to Page AZ. Between the big reservoir and the big reservation. Middle of Canyon country.

    They wouldda been a lot quicker.

    Ramp worked out pretty well on the front porch, still a lot of work.

    If it survived the big cargo shift today I'll give you a deal on it. Unless the wife needs it to store the stuff we're moving in it.At our first stop I Pryed the door up just enough to see a pile of dog food and potting soil spilling out & said, "this can't be good."

    Congrats.
    American SW is beautiful territory...watch any western made over the last 100 years.
    Its also rattler/scorpion/coral snake/Gilla Monster territory, so you might wanna Stock up on .22 shotshells.
    Good luck. Hopefully this'll be the last move for you. :thumbsup:

    Nov 2001 my family and the inlaws moved from NE Illinois to SE SD. A 26' U-haul, tow dolly and 2 cars all loaded to the rafters. About 600 miles

    Made surprisingly good time through Phoenix, and the big U-haul with the Ford V-10 did OK on the I-17 uphill run.

    That would be, more or less, like me moving to Spokane.
    I last moved about 12 years ago. Only about 20 miles, but it was no less painful.
    A move's a move. I feel for ya jbmid1.
    Glad he made the trip ok.
