We pick up the U-Haul today!
Shove off on Thursday head back to the NW. We made the decision last night.

Is this KC's fault, too? Everything else is, apparently. Dodgy

Where are you moving to? The wife and I are seriously considering moving to Washington state to get the hell away from everyone around here.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

Everett temporarily. It's just north of Seattle. We'll likely end up in West Seattle or Bellevue.

Wow - long trek! Will you stop along the way and see some of the country or is there a time issue?

No time issue but there is a money issue. We'll have to see.

That's a long drive, GT, and a big change from Louisiana. New job?

No time issue but there is a money issue. We'll have to see.

If you also have a camper/sleeping van, you might be able to ease expenses by staying at camp grounds along the way, rather than motels.

Hmm... Consider Autumn; moving into the cold part of the country at a pretty iffy time of the year might bring delays. South Dakota is digging out of 6+ feet of snow, right now. Maybe starting out with a more southerly route across to Arizona and then proceed north. Yes, it might take longer but ... it also might lessen the need to resort to cannibalism. Wink

I'm only advising from a set historical precedent. Wherever your journey takes you... keep the long-johns within reach. Drinking Beverage Bon Voyage!

I wish I had a job lined up already. We're winging it.

Kim- interesting point. I hadn't considered that it's not 90 degrees all over the country in October. Our route was going to be the short one. Dallas, Denver, Boise, Portland, Seattle. Almost a crow flies route.

So, why the change? That's a huge decision. There must a reason. It's the weed isn't it? Driving cross-country in the back of a sleeper van like a dirty hippy in search of weed. I've cracked the code!
