On the Road Again . . .


View Larger Map

In about 4 weeks Tom and I will be on another road trip. I can’t believe we are moving again. When we moved to Dallas (Oct. 2008), Tom drove a truck and our car was in a car carrier. This time will be different.

Tom’s last chemo treatment is April 13th. Driving a truck is not an option because I can’t drive one of those huge trucks with a car carrier. The driving would be too hard on Tom, so I’ll do most of the driving.

We are using PODS to move our belongings. PODS are storage containers that are delivered to your home. You load them up and they deliver the PODS to your destination. It’s the easiest way for us to move. Here’s the catch – it takes about 2 weeks for our stuff to get to NY. That leaves us without a home for that long. What to do? The answer is simple - road trip!!!

We'll be leaving on April 17th. I’m excited because we will be stopping along the way to visit with friends and family (see the above map). Our first stop in Louisiana is the only place we don’t know anyone. It is not the most direct route to New York from Dallas, TX, but it will be fun.

If there is an internet connection, I will let you know along the way where we are and what we’re up to.

I am very excited to stop and spend some time with people we love. Pictures will be taken and blog posts will be written.

I can’t wait! Road trips rock!

How fun to just take your time getting there and not having to worry about the big truck.
I admire you for being able to move again so soon. Having to move so far twice in 6 months wears me out just thinking about it!

You're coming right through ATL! I wish y'all could make a pit-stop so we can meet. Let me know!

Dawn said...

Wish you were coming south before you head north and east!!! Who knows... maybe I'll just have to come see you in NY if you don't make it down here.

I'm praying for you! Blessings!

You are leaving on my birthday! It's always been a particularly nice day for me :) so I think your trip will be blessed.

Prayers for Tom as he continues his treatment and prayers for traveling grace for the both of you.

Looks like you'll be going west of me. Let me know if you're anywhere near Richmond . . . but then again, if you stop by all your bloggy friends' places, you might never arrive in NY!
