If all goes well, professional movers will pack up everything I own on Wednesday, September 24, and put it in one of those "PODS" and store it in California. Then, I will drive from Denver to San Francisco in time for the Folsom Street fair on Sunday, September 28. I would start my new job the next day. The element of difficult for this dive is extreme.

Regrets

I never went caving

I never made friends with a lot of great bears (hi[info]bizarrocub ,[info]musikub ,[info]septimuswarren ,[info]mark_monroe ,[info]velcrorodeo ,[info]kumazuki , and[info]e_falki)
All the guys on recon who didn't give me the time of day
Never found a Master to love
I drifted away from the bear community
I never took that mining job
Never got a PhD in applied math from the Colorado School of Mines
I was never good at any of my jobs for the last 15 years
And I didn't like doing them
Breaking up with my partner of 14 years

Be very careful with interstate moves! There is a widespread and unfortunately entirely legal scam going on whereby they hold your goods hostage for thousands of dollars:

Otherwise, good luck on it, and see you in California!
