Progress report... We did in fact make it to Paradise last night (though not until 1 am!), and this morning we've started unloading the truck. We had a few very minor mishaps on the way up, but nothing major. The biggest annoyance was discovering that the truck was speed-limited to 67 mph (through a governor sort of mechanism). When you're cruising on 700 miles of road with speed limits between 70 and 80 mph, this is darned annoying – and, of course, it made the trip considerably longer. The load on the truck appears to have arrived in fine shape. A few boxes tumbled a bit, but so far we see zero damage of any kind. For the heavy stuff in the truck, a small army of local men are showing up early this evening (after their work) to give us a hand. I love this place!
