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!
