Moving estimates, more purging

The moving company sent out a rep to guesstimate how much crap we had, and thinks our packing will take two guys around 7 hours or so. When I was actually showing him around, it seems like we have a lot less stuff than I thought. They're estimating one week of transit time for all of our loot.

The cars will take two weeks. We'll take about four days in our rental. I'm starting to accept that there's probably no way around temporary housing unless we can actually sign a lease the weekend we get there and make sure the movers can redirect there. My emotional side wants to find our landing place and start settling in, but rationally, if the temporary housing is paid for, we should be using it.

I hit the crawl space today, and found some boxes orphaned from actual products. For the most part though, anything electronic has a corresponding box to it, which I'm now thankful for. I have a 17" LCD monitor to give to some family member, a mini-DV camcorder and yet another small TV for the Salvation Army. There's also a Nikon film scanner I need to find a home for. It uses an old SCSI interface, but otherwise looks similar to the models sold today. Not sure what to do with it.

We're getting lighter!
