Things keep moving along, no matter what

Today was a shift day for Mychael at the ER. So I had the kids and stuff to do. Regardless of how much is going on just related to the move, there is the usual list that just keeps everything running.

I am trying to get everything ready for the ADVON trip (thats the trip I need to take BEFORE we move in order to get everything ready in advance). So I am doing stuff like adding a spare tire to my utility trailer:

In about a month I will be hauling the lawn tractor, a bunch of fencing supplies, a fridge, a window AC, and some “assembly required” furniture up there to get the place ready. I don’t want to have a flat tire on the utility trailer be the glitch that kills that trip. I will leave it and the tractor up there and return.

I also bought a “new” truck (although its 5 years older than the previous one) and I have been doing some things to make it “mine.” The sheet metal on Ford trucks doesn’t change much from year to year so many of the plastic pieces are interchangeable. With a 2005-2008 grill and 2009-2015 mirrors, my 2004 F350 could easily be mistaken for something much newer.

 

The dually should be a more stable towing platform for the huge goosneck trailer we bought.

Of course, when I am outside, the two boys have to join me. They put on their “mechanic clothes” and started working on the mini-gator. The oldest one actually used my floor jack (correctly) and put it on jack stands (correctly) for safety.

I am in the middle of “clearing” post (this is the term we use to describe the process of getting out of the army) and I am short one item for CIF. But have no fear, an Orthodox friend I have never met (from the internet) came through and sent me one! How gracious of him.

Kit, Individual First Aid

All the while, the guys who really make the world go round–the tradesman–have been working hard on Ljubomir–Montana. My only friend who lives up there drove out to the site to find–the septic system is now completely up and running, (including pump, leach lines, leach field, low water warning, and all powered up), both meter boxes lit up, and of course the well produces water without me bringing a generator because Northwest Energy ran the cable from the distro lines. 

The stock trailer is almost done. Larry will be sending me some pics tomorrow. Almost daily we have something we need to address for the move now. I can’t believe we are this close.
