Last weekend, my husband and I drove up to San Francisco with a car load of stuff we've acquired for the house over the last few months, and added it to the pile of goodies stored in my parents garage. We had to pull a permit from the city where my parents live so that we could park a forty foot shipping container on a flat street close to their house.
We spent the whole weekend moving boxes and furniture into the container, but the craziest thing we moved was a 20 foot boat. And not just any boat. This boat's trailer was a measly one inch too wide to fit into the container, so my engineer dad literally had to jury rig temporary, and much narrower, wheels so that everything fit into the shipping container.
