I Miss One Thing About the Navy

When it was time for a move, you just opened your front door and they packed all of your stuff up and carried it away. Hell, they'd even pack up the dirty clothing, sleeping pets and the garbage if you didn't watch them.

Moving as a civilian sucks unless you've got a lot of cash (or a corporate relocation). On the other hand, packing yourself gives you a good chance to weed/purge old crap.

I already know how I'm going to die. It will be on moving day. Heart attack and/or catastrophic stroke. Not sure if it's the next move or the one after that, but I don't believe I have three moves left in me.

We've got a barn-full of stuff in storage now. Many totes that haven't been opened in four moves. Don't ask me why we don't throw that stuff out. I'll cry.

I long for the days when I was able to fit everything I owned in a duffel bag and parachute bag. Well maybe not, but it's nice to think back to when there was a time I could do that.
