One week from today the next chapter in my (our) life begins. Background.... we bought a condo in San Jose, California a couple months ago, then came back to Ohio, put our house on the market and sold in 5 days. We've been packing and downsizing like crazy....moving from a 4 bedroom home to a 2 bedroom condo. The condo has a one car garage compared to 3 cars in the house we sold. Had 11 pins in the house and quickly sold 4 of them thinking we couldn't fit them in a POD. But after more analysis, decided to rent a Uhaul instead of the POD. Now it turns out I have room for more pins in the Uhaul. Have picked up 2 pins in the past two weeks. So preparing 9 pins for the move to their new home out west.
We load up the Uhaul in one week and start the 36 hour drive (probably longer in a Uhaul). I'm thinking 4 motel nights on the road. Not looking forward to all that driving, but excited to think about settling into a relaxed lifestyle.
The condo is in a 55+ community. There are lots of older folks....60's, 70's, 80's and older. I'm thinking they'll get a kick out of playing the old pins they grew up playing....EM's. So my plan is to turn the garage into the pinball palace and invite the old guys (and ladies) for Freeplay Fridays on my old EM's. Give the old people something to do! Any thoughts or suggestions from my Pinside family?
