Video of loading crate
You may not think this video is funny, but I do. We had made this crate, (that was frankly too big, about 500 pounds...) So today we rented a trailer so we could deliver it to the shipper who will send it to Mali. We rented a landscaping style trailer so that the ramp would help us. We already had the crate on 2 moving dollies...
(One of which broke in the process of moving it today.)
We really laughed a lot at this "impossible" task as Lisa, Caleb and I tried to manoever this silly thing.
So finally, we used a jack to jack up the crate to get over a 2" lip to get on the start of the ramp. And we tied the crate to the car, and while I pushed, the car pulled the crate up into the trailer... It took about an hour to set up... and only a few seconds to actually roll it up with the car.... Then we drove about 10 miles to the shipper, and he took it off the trailer quite easily with a forklift....
Here is the live video!
So here we are, tired and happy after getting this crate loaded...
The crate was the last major obstacle, other than getting on the plane, in our return to Mali. So we are so pleased! Celebrate and thank Jesus with us! He is good!
Thanks for stopping by,
