Now that a lot of the packing is done, E.g. and I are turning our thoughts to moving companies.
It’s a long way from Toronto to Saint John, New Brunswick: just under a thousand miles. And the formula for pricing a move is usually weight times distance. So-o, the less stuff we decide to take, the less the move will cost us.
The post card above, found on Wiki Commons and dating from about 1908, offers a solution. E.g. will drive to New Brunswick with the cat and anything else that’s really valuable. I will follow with the dogs. The cart should hold enough kibble and hardtack to last about three days, so twice a week we’ll pull into a grocery store and fill ‘er up. We’ll arrive healthy and hearty and in good spirits, and by that time E.g. will have found a nice cozy UStoreIt room for us to live.
Ah, the simple life.
