    My gosh, stuff accumulates after four years! Does anyone have any suggestions/ideas on how to get all this stuff home (and books he wants to keep)? We are heading overseas after graduation for vacation and not directly home. Any ideas on how you handled it would be appreciated!
    Thanks!

    LOL, We rented a truck. (a van would have been a better choice.) BEWARE this stuff takes up a lot of room and never leaves. My DS is in Camp Pendelton, his crap is still in my garage.

    DS was worried about us bringing a Impala to Graduation next week. I have just had a new serpentine belt, transmission filer & fluid, new plugs & fuel filter put on my 2002 Grand Caravan (154,000 miles) that we are taking to Kings Point now. DS is now happy that there will be enough room for all his stuff to get back home. :thumb:

    Had garage nice and straightened out when DS got home with most of "his stuff" following passing license last Saturday - now here we are just 8 short days later garage is trashed - never heard truer words - it's obvious this stuff is never leaving... LOL

    I got out in '81. I am not one for keeping a lot of stuff, though. I left everything behind that didn't fit into my seachest or big ugly green duffle bag.
