Packing Our Van - A Believe It Or Not Moment

Remember this stack of book boxes?

And this one?

Multiply the first stack by two and add the second stack and you get the amount of boxes we will be stuffing in our mini van. A total of 66. :) Plus three carry-on size suitcases, our laptop bags, and a garment bag, along with a mini cooler for the all-important Dr. Peppers and Pepsis.

Two days ago I vacuumed out and photographed our van for your viewing and so you can get an idea of what we're dealing with.

The seats have been folded into the floor and everything's all clean for packing.

These are the boxes we will be dealing with, though probably only have are pictured here.

And the believe it or not moment. All 66 boxes plus luggage fit into our van. I have pictures to prove it.

I forgot to mention we also have a laundry basket in there with gluten-free foods for me, in case I can't find anything to eat in places, as well as two swords and our camera bag and a few other miscellaneous items.

So. Are you impressed? Unbelieving? These photos are not faked! ;)

I would say you can see it for yourself on our tour stops, but I hope we sell most of these and it will be much emptier once we leave Texas!


  1. Wow. As someone who works with book boxes a lot, I thoroughly commend you.

    Just be careful driving around corners or stopping suddenly.
