Our 2,000+ Mile Drive across the United States

As of December 2nd we were no longer residents of Hawaii.

We stayed up til midnight, the night of the 1st, cleaning the apt and doing last minute packing . We slept for 3 hours and got up for our flight.

Candid pictures of us at the airport :) The sun wasn't even up until we landed in Oahu.

 The Hilo Coastline as well as the last view of Mauna Kea :( so sad :(

Last views of Oahu, Aloha Hawaii

Flying over Los Angeles,. So hard to believe we were just here 6 months ago.

We opened our storage unit and everything was still there!!! wahoo!!!

Now to begin our 3 day trek from California to Kentucky 

The first day was an 8 hour drive to Flagstaff Arizona. The morning was beautiful, the mountains from California-Arizona are amazing.  On the 2nd day of our trip we were able to stop by a school that Josh and I helped out with our campus ministry from Murray, KY

 DAY 2 Flagstaff-Oklahoma City

The 2nd day was very lengthy, I think it was a 15-17 hour drive. I know it says 14 on the GPS but it was 17 hours with the Uhaul behind us,
Didn't get too many pictures other than at the church. We drove quite a LOT. Funny enough, my brain still thought I was in Hawaii. I woke up once looking at a convenience store selling moccasins. I was like moccasins?! who sells moccasins!! (thinking..In Hawaii) Josh was like um...we are in Arizona. LOL It was funny. 

NEW MEXICO = The longest state to drive though, 6 Fun full hours.

We were only in this room for 6 hours but it was awesome.

DAY 3-Oklahoma City- Lexington KY

 Had some fun car entertainment, so glad we had the laptop and movies to watch/listen to.

We made great time on the 3rd day (I pushed 70 almost the whole way when i drove). It was about 14:30 real time with the UHAUL.

Well, When we got to Lexington, it was pretty dark, but this is what the garage looked like the next day after we unloaded the car and Uhaul.
After 5 days of sorting we were able to get it down to a car load  (honda CRV,) and a car topper. :)
