You had the mini-marvel-movers.




I'm just telling you what the movers told me. But you can take it or leave it because obviously, you know more about moving furniture than some guys who only do it for a living.


Watching a 275lb Samoan who does it for a living better than his smaller peers leaves an impression. You are obviously MORE correct, though, because of your movers' anecdotes.


I’m not taking sides here, but IME samples of 1 are usually not reliable bases for forming general opinions.


I was kind of thinking the same thing, "battle of the anecdotes." I never said my example was anything but an anecdote. Anecdotes with Samoans must be less anecdotal.

Anecdote: by the unit or by the pound?

Guy could go to the local Home Depot first thing in the morning, get a truckload of Mexicans and drink beer while they hump it out. 😂😂

Once I get my business rolling, you guys will be using “Tits and Tags” for all your packing needs.

I’ll take pack team #1 please.

You think we can just pin them out in the grass like a llama? They need a bunch of extra attention?

I’ll do my best to weed out the high maintenance ones, but stake them out at your own risk.

I will supply them with proper attire to lay out in the sun when weather permits.

Great marketing plan but I question the execution strategy. The gals that can pack the loads generally won't be the ones you can put on the cover of your brochures. And if you find some that fit the bill for both, your clients are gonna propose on the spot and steal 'em away......

Just about any fit woman is better than looking at a hairy legged Jud or Beretzs.

tuffest and strongest old elk hunter i ever seen was a dirty old milk farmer who also did carpenter work,was about 6 ft. even 175 lbs had a beat up old rusty 30-06 Savage bolt rifle used a screw driver ,pliers and hammer on the scope night before season on that beat up old rifle. he could walk all day up and down mountains and always killed a bull elk and never asked for help, and always had his blue collar bibs on and a old dirty orange vest on and yellow farm gloves on , it took 3 - 4 trips for him with his bull to get back to camp and he just thru the quarters on the ground. but i never ever seen a man like that,decent guy kinda fun to drink beer with with but he sure was dirty always. but last 10 years have always been with my son and he does well too haulin meat on his back !

In rugged country, downhill, with snow, one trip dragging the entire animal. Bone in, five trips for 4 quarters then the head. Boned out, two trips.

I've seen them sling a hoedad for 10 hours nearly non stop, all the while navigating nasty cutover, then play soccer when they got done. Freaking machines.

I have packed out bull elk by myself twice. Each time was a 1-2 mile pack. Just packed out each of the four quarters, the blackstrap, what meat I could whittle off the neck, and head. Did the first time when I was 46, second time when I was 48.

Neither time was easy, but because of the terrain, the second time was easier.

When I got home after the first elk I packed out, I didn’t want to move for almost 2 days.

If I were you, I would bring as many young folks as you could.
