The big move, told through many pictures

As a continuation to my Moving is hard enough... thread, here are the pics!

The fish were placed in coolers and given airstones

Here is Josie in our friend's basement apartment waiting to go

The blue "lobster" dancing in excitement

Then the fish and rodents stayed overnight at a motel in Yahk while we took the Budget truck up to Calgary

The next day we loaded the truck

(That's Trevor with Toirtis and KaiserFish on the side)

Trevor, the birds, cats and I ready for the 6 hour trek to Yahk to join the fish and rodents

The following day, Squirrel and a cooler with snacks were loaded into the front of the Surbaru, while the fish and Spice were loaded into the back. Trevor road with the birds and Josie (no pic )

By the time we got to Spokane, we were exhausted and managed to get our mattress in before crashing

Over the next few days, we set up the fish tanks.

The 80 gal and Squirrel showing off her pearly whites

A BrianNY pleco getting comfortable

A degu before we properly set up their cage

The gerbils got tired of having only one cage and no tunnels, so they ate the ring around the "outpost." Luckily Trevor saw them before they escaped.

This is Casa avoiding his cage and admiring the 50 gallon

Finally, our bed was put back together!

A few days later (and after a lot of rest) we went to "rescue" Trevor's 1968 half ton truck from my aunt's thistle field.

The truck was in storage for abour 17 months--YUCK!!

This is Pup, my aunt's dog who decided to help while Trevor took the truck off blocks. It was a wet, rainy day and we went home smelling like dog

Thanks for posting the pics - I have never had the presence of mind to take photographs while moving and have never documented some of the more interesting events (something interesting always happens during a move) so it is cool that you have these pics to document the experience.

Welcome back, and it looks like you have settled in nicely
