The Last Dump Run!

So along with stopping all the major work on the house the last thing we had to do was.....

A FINAL DUMP RUN!!!!!!

Ya, I know it doesn't sound super exciting but for us...to do one final purge and get rid of all the junk was sounding very exciting. We've done, many, many dump runs in redoing 'The Chez' and I think we'd be fine if we never had to ever drive out to the Davis St. 'Transfer Station' again.

Stuff like the ginormous amount of Styrofoam that the elliptical trainer was packed in...




We were brutal and went thru all the 'old wood' that we've been saving and tossed all the crap.





We've also been using the side of our house as a 'temporary holding area' for junk. Its all gone now!





We even tossed the big chunks of wood that we were saving from the tree that fell down...like what the heck were we going to do with them anyways? Look how full the dang truck is? It was full! After we tossed in all the concrete chunks and broken bricks and what not.

Our good buddy Ian came over to help me load the truck and then unload it at the dump..(my kingdom for a dump bed)...except that the dang dump is now closed on Sundays!!! Stupid budget cuts! We've always gone on Sundays cause that gave us a weekend day and a half to load up the truck but not anymore. So we parked the truck and had to wait till the following Saturday to unload it. Nice thing was, when you get to the dump early on a Sat morn there was no waiting! It was the most trouble free dumping experience I've ever had.

"So we took the half a ton of garbage, put it in the back of a red VW microbus, took shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the city dump.

Well, we got there and there was a big sign and a chain across across the dump saying, 'Closed on Thanksgiving.' And we had never heard of a dump closed on Thanksgiving before, and with tears in our eyes we drove off into the sunset looking for another place to put the garbage."

At least you didn't throw it over a cliff and then have to go to court and confront a bunch of 8x10 colored glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one!
