Optimizing Cubic Capacity

The last time that my minivan was in Fernley, we removed the middle seat and stored it in the garage. (The rear bench seat has been in storage in Yuba City for years.) That maximizes the amount of cargo space. This week, I've been loading things into the van each evening. I have a couple of folding tables (one that I picked up from a pile of perfectly good-but-beat-up stuff that my office threw out when we last moved) that are going up on this trip, along with at least two bookshelves. I may manage another shelf or two as well tonight.

Even if I don't end up working from Fernley full-time, sometime before April I must significantly downsize my living expenses, which will involve moving. My goal is to make the amount of stuff that must go in the Final Trip as small as possible, and that means moving minivan-loads of anything I can move myself with the aid of a luggage cart as often as possible. And also, I want to make the most of the good weather, since when the weather gets bad, I'm less likely to be popping over Donner Pass every weekend.
