OK everyone has been asking HOW the move went welllllllllllll where do I start lol. First of all we had planned to leave Wed. afternoon it was FINALLY Thurs. morning at 12:15 am before we finally were loaded and left. We stopped at 4:30 am to the surprise that the tarp over the bed of the truck was totally shredded.
Once we got up stopped and bought another tarp. THOUGHT we had it tied down perfectly BUT guess what within just a few miles it was totally shredded too. Stopped and bought duct tape but that didn't work either. Eventually bought 2 tie downs and yes once again ANOTHER tarp. FINALLY we had everything tarped and tied down properly and were actually able to drive on the expressway and shock AT the speed limit. What a birthday present :(. It took us as long as whole trip should have been JUST to get out of the state of IL :(. Our total driving time was about 23 hours :(. Have to go back to IL still have enough stuff to fill a 16 foot truck and get it down here.
Between those purchases the motel room AND gas I managed to use every penny I had and that included what WAS supposed to be my rent money and managed to bounce not one but 2 checks.
I THINK I covered everything only good thing was that with Casey and Tammy's help we managed to get what furniture we brought with us into place and set up and a good portion of the boxes unpacked. All I have left to do now is a few boxes and all my wall hangings :D.
