Moving Adventures

We picked up the 16' moving truck on a Wednesday.

We loaded it, with the help of our friend Goran, on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

After loading my Jeep on the trailer, we were ready for the drive on Friday!

There was just enough room between the seats for Poe's cage. Corky shared the passenger seat with whomever was sitting there at the time.

Poe amused himself by munching on Corky's tail.

Johnny started the drive off first, once he fueled himself with Starbucks.

After that we took shifts each time we stopped for gas. Honestly, the drive wasn't too bad. I was nervous at first about driving the truck and towing something. The worst part were people who loved to cut in and out in front of me. It was annoying to have to adjust the speed so often in something so big and heavy.

We drove through the night Friday. After being up over 30 hours, we rented a 16 x 20' storage unit and unloaded the truck, with the help of my dad, before returning it. Then, we got up early on Sunday morning and I drove J back to the airport to return to IL.

Needless to say, I slept pretty much the entire day Monday.
