Per request, here is the time frame for the move.
Oct. 26 – my birthday. Yippie. Probably no books or CDs, for obvious reasons.
Nov. 1 – sign all the bloody papers
Nov. 8 – pre-packer stuff (all art off walls, all electronics disconnected, cats to boarding, etc. (no blogging ’til I’m set up at other end)
Nov. 9 – official close of escrow.
Nov. 9-11 – movers pack house, garage, everything, load van.
Nov. 12-14 – on the road – drive from SoCal to Portland (actually Bridgeport), stay in hotel.
Nov. 15 – access to house, first look since mid-August (!), but still in hotel.
Nov. 16 – moving van arrives, our stuff is in, first night living in the new house.
Then all we have to do is unpack some stuff and sell the house at this end…
