Just as the rebuilding of New Orleans is a puzzle, so are the logistics of our return trip, albeit on a much humbler scale.
It seems I “rescued” a few too many items from our home in New Orleans. I should have left them there. Instead, I brought them to Bloomington, and now we have to figure how to get it all back. It’s just too much to fit in our compact Saturn.
We could rent another vehicle, but that seems way too expensive.
We could rent a trailer, but we’d have to install a hitching post, and again it seems like overkill.
We could get a cartop carrier, but we don’t have a luggage rack, and I’m nervous about these “clip” fasteners. Plus, I’m not even sure where you buy this sort of thing.
We could ship the stuff separately, but I’m not sure about the current state of shipping services in New Orleans.
We could have someone here in Bloomington hold it for shipping later. That seems like the best option, but it would mean imposing upon someone here — most likely Xy’s mom.
We’ll figure it out eventually, of course, but in the meantime — what a headache!
