Moving again, gonna be offline for awhile....

Probably going to do the bulk of the moving this Monday/Tuesday. Hopefully we'll get it all done. We're currently 2/3 packed as it is, it's just moving the heavy stuff. Gonna have to rent a truck, and find some help.

Once we do get in, we're probably only going to have Dail-up, unless Direct TV has some kind of broadband. This is going to make life interesting, having two pc's. At least I can take the laptop to a few places close-by and log in to a free Wi-Fi node.

Good luck on the move, Allen. Sounds like you're pretty organized and have a battle plan. Yep, as Jeekins says, moving definitely vacuums.

LOL. It seems like I've been moving, on average, once every two years for the past 15 or so years. It's not so much a "battle plan", as it is practical experience. The bulk of the stuff I can move by myself. It's the heavy furniture, like the couch, my bed, bookcase, and gun cabinet (no guns in it, though), that I just can't move alone.

Good luck with the move! Direct TV and Dish Network do have broadband plans, but it requires special equipment from them (of course) and it is very expensive.....about twice what cable broadband costs. I take it your moving into an area that cable hasnít reached yet? I now the feeling since cable only recently made it to my area.

What about DSL with the phone company. Itís cheaper than cable and satellite access, and has decent speed at 512k. But, as with cable, DSL isnít always in the area.

And moving definitely vacuums!

Iíve actually moved a couch by myself using a dolly, some creative balancing, and lots of baby steps.

AllenOK,
If I wasn't still recovering from my heart surgery, I would come over there to BA and give you a hand.

I live SW of Bixby and have Bixby Telephone Co service with DSL, if that helps.

Good luck with the move Allen! Yes, check in when you can. I did the every 2 years moving for about 15 years straight. #1, I don't think another sucker will come along to buy this house so I have to implement #2 - moving pictures/furniture around so I THINK I'm living in a new place!

I hope your move goes well and we will see you back shortly. We haven't moved in over 37 years and don't have any idea how long it would take to move all our junk - probably would have to get rid of lots of it. Moving is a good way to keep tidy.
