Shipping News – Long live Hugo!

We’ve been musing about our belongings and wondering if they’re having a nice time sailing the ocean seas. We’d also been wondering if we’d ever see our things in the timeframe promised.

After a quick email to our shipper, Allied International, I got confirmation that our container did not make it onto the Pacific Link as previously noted.

Instead, the container is on the CMA CGM Hugo which sailed from Oakland on March 6th.

Estimated Arrival Date: April 25, 2006

My dad’s name is Hugo so I think this is a most auspicious sign that our goods will arrive on time.

We plan to move into the Christchurch house around April 10th with our friend Ken arriving on the 16th, so looks like we’ll be ‘camping out’ for a good two weeks on the floor. At least it’s carpeted…..
