    Safe moving fun...

    Since we were in the process of downsizing for our move from Michigan to San Antonio I had a large (25 long gun) safe that I decided to gift to a friend - a 70+ year old friend. I drafted a former co-worker to help with the muscle part. My old friend had an appliance hand truck with straps.

    From my house to the sidewalk was the door jamb and a one step stoop. "I've got this" I said when my friend said want some help as I was making a stab at going down that one step...famous last words. As I started it down the step it went south and fell over, off the step. Naturally, so did I! I dodged a huge bullet; I could have had the safe fall on me; luckily I landed next to it not under it. The only "pain" I suffered was to my ego. Brushing myself off I said "that was fun!"

    No matter what "method" you try to use to move it make sure you have enough muscle and help to do it safely.
