More of our belongings came off the boat today. Luckily we have had clear, bright skies and little rain to contend with while chucking our worldly belongings into the back of a pickup truck.
Today I picked up the rest of the food stores that I was unable to remove yesterday plus our dishes, pots and pans and the first wave of boat gear; foul weather gear, boots, harnesses. Tomorrow I will be picking up the first tool in this project and begin removing the lamps, clinometer, barometer, thermometer and anything else mounted to the inside of the hull.
We will be washing, sorting and closely examining the value of each and every item before it is loaded back aboard. As always, books will be the hardest to cull.
There are only a few beloved items on board that will always make the cut. Poor Teddy has seen some better days.
Got a phone call this morning (on MLK Day) that our materials shipment arrived on the barge, five days earlier than anticipated. We should have everything off the boat by Wednesday.
It only gets busier from here.
