We have been working on our driving plan to go south.  Who drives which truck, when and how far.

OH S#@$  It looks like I am going to drive pulling our camper most of the way.  I have only pulled it short distances and only on our little back roads.  Guess this means I'll have to learn on the road.  Three major cities are on our path cross country.  Not too bad I guess.  I am happy I am not trying to do this in our old SUV.  That would be miserable.  And I don't have to drive my daughters standard.

Lots of mountains and steep drop offs, cross winds and winding roads.  Oh joy.  The good part is that we won't be packed in. My husband and oldest daughter in her truck.  Me and the other 3 kids in mine.


The motorcycle will be on the trailer.  Poor thing.  The battery charged and a full tank of gas.  Ready to ride but strapped down.  I'll have to take her for a ride when we get to our new home.

I have been looking at rent prices. All I can say is OH CRAP!  $$$$$  everything is so high.  I can't even afford a card board box in an ally!  We are moving to an area that is booming.  An area that the recession barley touched.

I have faith though.  Something will come up one way or another.  I don't want something fancy.  4 walls and a roof sounds good to me.

So much to do and so little time to do it all in.


  1. I don't envy you the move. So much to do and organize and then getting resettled. I was always so glad when it was over. Good luck

  2. We've moved several times since we've been married. Often enough that it was kind of old hat, no big deal. But, now we've been here for almost 10 years and I know if we were moving while it might be exciting, it would also feel quite daunting. I hope you find a nice new place to call home and that the move itself and the transition goes well!

  3. Good luck with the move, the driving. We've done it several times. I hope you get settled quickly.

  4. good luck and drive safely
