the time is now

Good morning.
After a hectic few days, we're ready to hit the road.
The car got picked up on Monday...
The relo cube got delivered and packed Monday....
I didn't think all our 'stuff' was going to fit in this little 'box', but it did with room to spare.  :-)
And picked up on Tuesday afternoon. They will take it back to the main ABF terminal, and put it in a semi heading out west. It should arrive in Vegas in about 6-8 business days. I got a tracking number so I'll be able to go online and monitor it's travel.
We've spent the last 2 nights at a Residence Inn in a very nice 1 bedroom suite, Thanks to an employee discount of a  former customer that works the front desk.
This morning, we'll hit the road on our 4 day trip to Vegas. Our first stop is scheduled for Newton Iowa. Each day is expected to be about 7-7 1/2 hours on the road. A little less than the 10 hour days we did back when we bought the house. But of course, we did that trip in 3 days. That should get us to Vegas Saturday afternoon. Our car is scheduled to arrive on Sunday.
So.....after nearly 3 years of planning, plotting and waiting, The biggest change in my entire life has begun. Retirement, and a cross country move.
I'll try and keep you posted of our progress.


  1. I prefer the 7-71/2 hour days when we travel, but hubby is always in a hurry. Wears me out!
    Hope you have a safe trip. God bless.

  2. Excitement! Good luck! I wish we had used the tubes and got rid of more stuff before we moved. I will never use a moving company again.

  3. Congratulations and good luck guys.
