MOVING....Use your brain and not your brawn

So as it turns out, all my "helpers" could not show up when I could drive the 2 1/2 hours to my storage unit. So I rented a big truck and a 4 wheel trailer. I drove down in my car, picked up the truck, loaded the storage in the back, drove back to the rental place and threw my car on the back. Simple right? Well 200 square feet of storage is a LOT. Desks, chairs, rugs, boxes, oak book shelves, a sofa, two dining tables, mattresses, frames. You name it, it was in there. So how did I do it myself? I got some old blankets and used the slide down ramp. Had a dolly but didn't use it much. You have to learn to use leverage, slide stuff up the ramp and with careful packing I filed an entire 15 foot box truck, the cab and my car I was towing back. It took two full days and the drive ended up taking 4 and 1/2 but it is done. Except for the unpacking of course.
