Default Packing, and packing, and packing...

Yes, I've been packing all day. Don't anyone worry that I've gone and gotten myself a life or anything. Just a couple more days of packing then a few days of driving, and I'll be eating steak from a cow killed that same morning. In the electric chair.

Anyone know how the guys are doing? Are they there yet? Did they experience some sort of Joycian epiphany and now set aside their computers to become shag carpet salesmen, their lives fulfilled? (I hear that happens during driving trips cross country, but I wouldn't know.)

No such luck. :P Just a fairly uneventful, long drive across relatively mild terrain in mostly good weather. A nail-biting few days for me, but I've got mental problems. The only time I really should have been nervous was crossing some mountains just east of El Paso at night in an electrical storm. But of course I was anxious the whole time regardless.

Anyway I now can say with conviction that Texas is very hot and very large. The house is really nice but I need to find a job and it'll be a few days before our DSL is hooked up, so I'm on dial-up. Ick. After a couple days of unpacking and settling in I'll be around here more.

Glad you guys made it in one piece!

(Well, ok, I suppose that's technically two pieces, but you know what I mean.)

Thanks. :)

I'm glad too. We had some nightmarish weather around El Paso, but that was the worst of it. For the most part the trip was more monotonous than anything else.

Good to hear that the move went well, vm.

Although I hate packing, I did kinda enjoy driving that 24' truck. It was sort of like driving a tank (or what I would imagine driving a tank would be like)...there were times when I wanted to (and did) yell out "Gunnery Sergeant, lock on target! FIRE!!!"

:D

Thanks Goliath.

Our truck was only a 17', but we were towing a car as well. I used to drive a 5-ton truck with two 600 gallon fuel pods on the back when I was in the Army, so it was kinda reminiscent of that. Except the U-Haul takes unleaded, so I missed the smell of diesel. :P

This is one of the most poignantly sad things I've heard.
