The First Move - March 3, 2004

On March 3, 2004, Sabrina went over to my dad's house and supervised the first movement of my truck in many years. I was unable to take part in this, as it was during the week while I was at work. It was necessary to do it on this particular day in order to prepare the rest of the property for the pending sale. So, being the supportive wife she is, Sabrina stepped in and saved the day. All of the vehicles in the horse corral had to be removed and be parked in front of the house for final disposition during the next few days. J & B Towing of Irwindale, CA performed this task for us.

There were a total of 10 vehicles on the property at the time my father decided to put the house up for sale. At the strong encouragement of my stepmother, my father decided to dispose of all but two of the vehicles he owned. A total of seven vehicles were parked in the back horse corral area. One by one, each of these vehicles were towed up to the front of the house and lined up in the long driveway that runs the length of the front of the property. It had been many years since these vehicles have been parked in this area and the whole family remarked at the sight. My truck remained parked in the front driveway until the following Saturday, the day Auto Tek was expecting delivery of the truck.

From the pictures below, you can see many of the dings and minor dents now adorning the truck occurred during this move. However, it was a very tedious job, and we are grateful for the hard work of the two J & B Towing drivers performed in accomplishing this unorthodox task. In one of the pictures below, you can see the truck didnít want to leave its old home without a fight. Even though it received a few scrapes, no major issues resulted in getting the truck positioned for a final Saturday afternoon ride to Orange County, CA.
