I have become intimately familiar with how much a boatload of stuff really is over the last few days. You see, packing a boat isn’t the same as packing house.
With a house, you fill boxes and pile them in the middle of the room. The pile gets as big as it needs to be. Then you move all the boxes at once. You can’t do that on a boat. There isn’t enough room. So, you load three or four boxes, and move them out. then repeat. and again.
I ended up over the course of about two days of work with about 50 boxes and a collection of un-boxed stuff.
Whenever you move and get to touch end examine ALL of your stuff you learn something about yourself. I have learned almost all of my “stuff” falls into a very few categories. Tools. Fishing Gear. Food. and a distant fourth, clothes.
In a week or so, all my stuff will be meeting me in Florida. Karen, Harmonie and I will all be in the same place at the same time for the first time in what seems like a very long time.
