Well, we did not make the Friday deadline. We have apparently not learned over the years that packing always takes longer than we imagine it will.

With the help of our friends Chika, Jared, Merrick, and Warren, we packed up the trailer over Friday night. Jared proved himself to be a permutations virtuoso, as he stood in the trailer and rotated every box and piece of furniture until it fit perfectly.

We made the poor decision to leave the parking lights on for the entire packing job, illuminating our work, and eventually, extinguishing our battery. So, after a good night's sleep at Merrick's house (no furniture in our house anymore), we're off to jumpstart the truck to jumpstart the journey.
