Re: coming up with the right solution
I problem solve a bit differently. I would look into discovering as many ways to get it done as possible. Then be looking for the opportunity to get it done frame a wider range of possibilities.
Hire someone to move them it removes all the other details. Basically that is approaching the problem from the "I am not a trucker I am a beekeeper" viewpoint. To me the right way is the one that gets it accomplished. I don't usually take issue with the method.
Locally I have the ability to combine my hive with others in the area and get all the hives sent together. Someone else solved the logistics. My transport concern is reduced to a few blocks rather than miles.
Stand for what you believe, even if you stand alone.
