I took a number of pictures of the moving day event when our two oldest went off to university. I had rented a minivan for the move and, as you can tell from the picture, the minivan was completely full. Barely enough room for passengers.
When I went to university, I had more technology to carry. I had to use a Mayflower truck. Studio gear, musical equipment, and a computer. Bear in mind that this was the age before laptop computers. Studio equipment and computers were much bigger back then and I needed a full-sized rig to move all my stuff. I remember wishing that my dorm room was a little larger.
