Maxed Out

Hey!  I have to make this post super short.  We’re packing up the cabin + need to make it on the road to Vancouver today in the next couple hours!  Gear up for the next 10 hours of road!!!

Yesterday basically sucked a bunch of sour grapes.  I knew it was going to be a gnarly day.  I didn’t even put on my turquoise, y’all!!!!  Here’s the very full Budget van hauling ass to Exshaw.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you cosmopolitan folk don’t know what a 40 ft storage container looks like, this is a big leviathan.  And this is what we filled yesterday.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s me revealing the full van, biting my knuckles off.  Stop looking at my ankle socks!!!!  I had no choice!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We lifted, hauled, pushed + cursed.  If I needed to remind all of you, thank god I’m so buff.  But look!  Pretty!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poor Jeff is so tired + is working so hardcore.  Here he is laid out on the liftgate after hitting his head.  Note to anyone making a big move, some words of wisdom – YOU MUST GET A TRUCK WITH A LIFTGATE.  I cannot stress that enough.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We drove back to Canmore for our second load + Jeff nearly burst a blood vessel because he realized we forgot the keys to the storage garage.  He had a solution.  This is how Canadians remove locks.  Take an ax to it, Canuck!!!!  Get ANGRY!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All my costumer friends, I know it pains you to look at this next picture.  You’ll be even more sad for me when I tell you that during the ride, two of the racks fell over.  Jeff was raging because it knocked over his stupid Jesse James looking bike cruiser with the flames on it.  I was OVER IT!!!!  Go ride that ugly bike in Long Beach!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyways, these pictures do not convey the pain + torture + sweat that we endured.  We cleaned out: 1) the storage garage 2) the box storage 3) Peter + Dolly’s garage + 4) Roger’s garage.  Yeah, uh-huh.  That’s right.  4 locations.

 

 

At least he can still smile!

As for me, notsomuch.

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, we filled an ENTIRE 40 FT STORAGE CONTAINER.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This picture is blurry because I couldn’t see straight anymore.

 

 

 

 

At 9:30 I pre-wrapped myself because I couldn’t take it anymore.  We were looking at things left behind in the storage garage in the pitch dark with one flashlight.  Jeff still had to pick up things from a coworker + drop things off at Peter + Dolly.  I was like, “Yo, I’m out.”.  But, we found this old picture of lanky young Jeff + I felt slightly better.  Juuuust slightly.  Pictures like this remind me of things that I love about Jeff.

Wish me luck today.  I will need it.
