We spent a few hours preparing the kiln for shipping yesterday by building cardboard and plywood supports for the inside of the kiln. They had luckily saved the Styrofoam arch support. We also spoke with Mike about the logistics of the move and set a date for the weekend of August 9th or 10th (depending on the weather). My excitement about the kiln is starting to win out over any fears I may have...and Tim plans to spike my cheerios with something the day of the move so that I'm nice and mellow.
The whole time we were packing the kiln, Leo the dog (on top) had his way with this little pug the entire day. It was quite entertaining.
