It is a big relief once everything is packed. Then we’re ready to get things cleared out of the house and loaded. First up was our HHE, which came in at 7,102 lbs and filled 8 crates.
As boxes were loaded in, I checked off the numbers. This was then compared to the checks on the movers list to ensure that everything was accounted for.
After the first 6 crates were loaded, the truck departed for the warehouse and then returned with more to finish our HHE and to start on our storage shipment.
Our storage shipment wrapped up fairly quickly the next morning and came in at 3,746 lbs and 7 crates.
A huge weight was lifted once the truck departed with the last of the freight and we were finally finished. We have a small bit of loaner furniture from the embassy to get us through until we leave post.
