My New Exercise Bike Made the Move From California to Michigan

April 18, 2019

When I moved to Michigan, I didn’t bring tons of stuff. I sold a few things, tossed out a few things, and donated a heckuva lot to thrift stores. I didn’t bring any furniture – just clothes, books and knick-knacks, and kitchenwares. The biggest items that went on the moving truck were my exercise equipment. I’ll need to work out in Michigan!
