Here we are at ONE WEEK AND COUNTING!!!!!!!
Time certainly has gone by quickly - it is almost hard to believe that we are at the final stage of our count down! WOO - HOO - WOO - HOO!!!
This week I will be doing last minute packing for both THE LONG TERM STORAGE BUNKER & THE SMALL RV STORAGE BUNKER.
Wednesday 8 am I will pick up a 10' U-Haul truck and we will empty out most of our TINY UNIT and bring the STUFF down to the storage facility. We will be left with:
2 reclining beach chairs
1 40" flat screen TV
2 thick air mattress for sleeping
minimal food - enough for 2-3 days
clothes and packed travel bags
On 3/31 the folks who bought our 40" TV will pick it up and we will move into the local Santa Fe Best Western Plus and stay there until 4/4. At this point we will relocate to an Albuquerque airport Hotel, stay overnight and fly out to Indiana on 4/5.
Now the WORK begins!!!!!!!!! Wednesday we have to empty out a portion of the LONG TERM STORAGE BUNKER to make room for any LONG TERM stuff from our TINY UNIT that will be left in the LONG TERM STORAGE BUNKER for the long term!!! :>) Most of the STUFF being emptied out is STUFF for the RV which we have not placed in the SMALL RV STORAGE BUNKER.
WAIT!!!!!! WE ARE NOT DONE YET!!!!!!!
The SMALL RV STORAGE BUNKER is EXTERNAL STORAGE so some things we will retain in the INTERIOR LONG TERM STORAGE BUNKER.
So when all is said and done we will have:
A LONG TERM STORAGE BUNKER containing mostly LONG TERM STORAGE ITEMS & some RV items.
A SHORT TERM RV STORAGE BUNKER containing RV ITEMS
When we return from Elkhart Indiana with our new home, sometime around April 15, the following will happen:
There is a Sam's Club almost across the street from the STORAGE FACILITY. We will stay in their parking lot the night that we return to Santa Fe. In the morning we will access both of our STORAGE BUNKERS and move ALL THE RV STUFF via our car over to our RV in the Sam's parking lot. This will take about 4 - 5 trips. We will then surrender our SMALL RV STORAGE BUNKER.
We plan on weighing all the boxes so we have a general idea of the amount of weight we are bring into the RV, remembering there is a critical WEIGHT LIMIT that must be adhered to!!!! Once all the RV STUFF is loaded into our new RV HOME, we will drive to the KOA RV Park in Santa Fe, setup for a 2 week stay and begin to unload all the RV STUFF from the boxes and find a place for everything and everything in its place!!!
It is quite possible that our "eyes are bigger than our storage space within our RV and somethings will need to be brought back to the STORAGE FACILITY and stored in the LONG TERM STORAGE BUNKER and not taken on the RV Journey.
Sooooooooooo within about 3 days of returning from Elkhart Indiana we should have our new RV HOME setup and loaded for travel.
We will set out on April 30th or May 1st for San Antonio TX for a one week stay in an RV Resort which is quite close to the RIVERWALK - thus our Journey will begin.
WHEW I'm tired already.
Stayed tuned my friends there is Soooooooooooooo much more to come!!!!!!!!!!!
