Florida or Bust!!

Our new assignment is leading us to Wesley Chapel, a city just north of Tampa, Florida.

After driving, with a Uhaul, across the US we decided that it would really help our wallet if we could manage without a Uhaul. It would also help the wear and tear on our car. SO, after about 2 weeks of sorting through our personal items, we THINK we have it down to what we can live off of for the next year or so. Hopefully when we get to Florida we can go through a few more items and be more conscientious of accumulating items.

This what my parents garage looked like after we unloaded the Uhaul. This is also missing 3 suitcases and a desktop computer

After spending 2 weeks, sorting our items, we were able to get it down to this. Even a few items from this picture didn't make it in the car.
Most of the apartments, provided by my husband's agencies, are furnished with only furniture. We are responsible for linens, as well as the kitchen (minus a microwave) SO, After major thinning, I was able to get our kitchen down to a suitcase as well as a Rubbermaid tote, WAHOO!

Getting the topper on and securing it down!
The car is a little back heavy, BUT everything fits, the bag is secure (we did a short excursion on the Bluegrass going 70 MPH to check the security of the bag/ties). SO, looks like we are all systems go for our next 15 and 1/2 hour trek to Florida!

We are driving 11 hours as of Dec 30, 2011 stopping in Jacksonville for the night, then heading to Tampa on New Years Eve!

We hope the drive goes smoothly and we are blessed with more safe driving!
