So no synths, no computers, no race bikes, no speakers, no nothing apart from clothes and furniture... as if I have enough furniture to fill a 40ft container. (does anyone in the states wants furniture or clothes from EU let me know we can work something out ;-) )
> I've checked airfreight and will probably on my own expenses have some stuff shipped airfreight to the US. This is an ongoing exercise, considering weight / size and 'do i need it' and 'is it cheaper to  buy it again in the states than having it shipped' ... Not the most fun exercise to do...

> MOTU828se going to the US
> Focal monitors not decided yet, I like them so much, but a little expensive to buy again, but too heavy to have them shipped...
> Modular hopefully to Jay, so that's EU.
> Circlon, 9090 and diy 808, EU. (I'm sure going to miss the circlon.... but it needs the upgrade to V2 and this will only arrive after I've left. (Screen is getting really bad)

> Now, looks like I'm going to buy some stuff too, (but keep in mind that I'll need to be able to send it back to EU after 3, 5 or max 7 years... but according to my wife it will be max 5 years... we'll see, 273 days of sun in GA...)
