One word: ExpensiveBurnOut said:So how was the move SM?
Another word: Frustrating.
I had reserved an auto-trailer with U-Haul so I could tow my '87 D150 down with me. Incidentally, about 1/2 of everything I own was in the cab or bed of teh '87, the other 1/2 in the bed of my 2000 Ram. U-Haul was supposed to call me the day before I picked up the trailer to tell me which location to pick it up at. Hearing nothing from them, I called them about 20 minutes before 5 PM. They tell me I have to pick it up in North Pole (15 miles away, not happy, but I could deal with it)
Next day (day of move) they call and tell me they don't have a trailer. I spent about 30 minutes on the phone with Uhaul corporate giving them a *small* portion of my mind and what I thought of their company. I asked them what I was supposed to do and if they always screw people over like this and I basically got a "sorry, better luck next time". They offered to "let" me pick up a trailer in Whitehorse (600 miles away) for the oh-so excellent discout of $100. I will never use Uhaul for anything, ever, ever again. And I will not let anyone I know ever use them either. I promised the smug **** on the phone at corporate that.
So, I left without my '87 and the 1/2 of my stuff that was in it. It is currently stored in my grilfriend's parents garage (still in Alaska). I bought an autotrailer from the girlfriends' father's friend, and my old man said he would tow the '87 down to me sometime in March. So in the end, I will get my truck, the rest of my stuff, and have a trailer for the '87 to-boot. Cost about 4 times as much, but oh well.
I've been meaning to make a post about my move, but haven't really had the time lately (this is the quasi-short version )
Anyway, I'm here! It's warm (to me, 45 above is better than 50 below ), the new job is okay, I like my new place, gas is cheap(er), and the girlfriend is only 300 miles away instead of 2400.
