Jonathan and I drove our little trailer to the MAF hanger to pick up five (5) 4x4x4 foot crates that will carry our household goods to PNG. These are pre-fabricated crates that we will put together in our garage and then return filled to MAF shipping. From there they will be loaded into a shipping container to travel to the coast and then by ship to the port of Lae, PNG. Then they will travel overland by trucking to our home in Goroka, PNG. It is supposed to take between 1-2 months to make this journey. We hope to get them on their way by Nov 1st so they are soon to arrive after we touch down in PNG on Dec 1st. Yes, our arrival date got pushed back a month due to some paperwork slowness. But as we are learning to say, “No worries, mate!”
We will share more photos of the crate loading process. Looking for help to get those crates into the box truck at the end of October. We will be using a pallet dolley and a truck with a lift gate. There will be a loading dock and a forklift at the MAF hangar end. Stay tuned for more details.
