As Ken B. observed recently, it seems like we never did fully unpack from our last move. Yet here we are, sifting & sorting & packing and moving our stuff for the second time in as many years.
Many hands were on deck to make this move a resounding success: Brian C., Rick B., Joe McK., Steve, JJ, Ken B. and Andrew. In our favor - the freight elevator worked, Andrew's box truck, the fork-lift back at the Milburn location, and the combined energy from all involved.
The rain wasn't much of a factor, at least until around 5:00 pm. Word is someone lost control of their car on east Third Street and struck a utility pole. It knocked out the power at the Front Street complex and a good chunk of the St. Anne's Hill neighborhood. Thankfully, by then we had completed about 95% of the move. (Also thankfully, no one was on the elevator when the power went out.)
The surviving members of the crew reported to Tank's Bar & Grill for a post-move celebration.

It doesn't feel like we got of the things out of boxes, but here we go again. Dayton Diode will be moving from the Front Street buildings,1001 E 2nd St #2475, to 660 Milburn Ave. The move will be going on in stages over the month of April, so we are going to have a transition period where we occupy both spaces. Any coordinated moves will be posted on meetup, so if you would like to offer a helping hand, RSVP and stop by.
