Thanks, bootsy, for the rec first of all. I went with a company that gave me both a container and a full-serve quote, and the full-serve quote was not far enough off to make a difference, so I leant in the direction of other folks packing up the truck for me. (Astonishing what a regular income will do for you. Of course, within 24 hours thereafter, my stepfather was relating to me stories off of Dateline NBC or whathaveyou about online moving companies who suddenly demand $8,000 to release possessions to their rightful owners, so we’ll see.)

Thanks, also, for the blogging. I’ll look forward to seeing your site design, when time allows.
