Moving Day at the Oceanside Office Thanks for the memories, O'side

It's just after 10am on Friday, December 15, 2016 -- it's moving day. The lease is up on Dynamic Vision's top floor loft office in the beautiful city of Oceanside, CA and it was time to officially say goodbye to the former headquarters office for our software development shop (we opened a new HQ office in April of 2016 in Temecula, CA).

The past two years on the 5th floor of the Ocean Lofts for DV were filled with long and productive work days, countless learning experiences, great food at the local eateries, fun, music, game nights, and a ton of laughs.

And although this day was one that we knew was coming for some time, there's simply no finality quite like that of moving day.

There was heavy rain all morning long in Oceanside. Somewhat fitting that the weather was less than ideal on a such a bittersweet day.
With a total of 12 DV team members on hand that morning, we were able to make quick work of all of the furniture and various disassembly that was needed.
Devs gotta dev -- even on moving day. Caleb and Mike carve out some to time to work through code on the only desk that hadn't yet been disassembled.
And because three great minds are even better than two, Brian takes a break to assist. This team is ALWAYS working together!
Daniel, Customer Success Manager at DV, and on this day -- handy man and moving pro!

Sergey was masterful at making use of every inch of space in the moving truck.
Caleb and Ryan were among those who made many a trip down from the 5th floor to help fill the trucks.
Hands down, one of the best parts of the moving experience is breaking for lunch.
By the late afternoon the rain had subsided, allowing what was left of the day's light to shine down.
The kitchen would be the last of the rooms to be packed-up and cleaned out.
By 4pm, not much was left in the office other than the furnishings that came with the loft.
At around 4:30pm, we had our final walk-through with management. then it was time to go.
Mike grabs his bags and prepares to exit the Oceanside office one final time... does Brian.
Once back downstairs, there was only the small matter of agreeing on who would be driving the moving trucks as we set out on the roughly one hour drive.

Even more of the DV team would join the us at the storage facility in Murrieta, CA -- just minutes away from the Temecula office -- to help unload the trucks into our storage unit.

The remainder of the team continued to hold down the fort at HQ and remote locations -- it was a total team effort.

Michael led the charge organizing and fitting everything into our storage unit. After an hour-and-a-half or so of unloading and organizing, all that was left to do was to take some essential items to HQ.

9:17pm // The last of items are dropped off in our Temecula office. After a quick drive a few blocks away to return the last U-Haul truck, our long day was done.

These past two years in Oceanside and all the memories we created in that office are a crucial part of the history and timeline of Dynamic Vision. It's a period of time we won't soon forget.

And as sad as we were to say goodbye to the Oceanside office and everything the surrounding area had to offer, we are equally excited at what the future holds for DV in our new HQ office in Old Town Temecula.

Thanks for the memories, O'side!
