Iowa and other thoughts

We're back on the road after staying at a lovely Hilton Garden Inn in greater Des Moines.

As we were driving through the area yesterday, we saw many large companies from diverse industries - so different from mid-Michigan's depressed auto-only economy.

Today we have a mostly rural drive through Nebraska and Wyoming. One day closer to Cali!

On our way

This morning we hit the road on our cross country drive to northern California. Originally, we were going to take a southern route to avoid bad winter weather. But after looking at the forecast we decided instead to try the more direct path along I-80. We'll keep a close eye on the weather and head south if needed. Tonight we'll stop in Des Moines or enen Omaha if we're really energetic.

Packed up, ready to load the truck

Today's closing went well and all seems to be progressing as planned for our move from Lansing to Cupertino. The folks from Lansing Moving did a great job packing up our entire household in just 2.5 hours! Pretty amazing.

Tomorrow morning the Allied truck and driver arrive, and they'll load the furniture and boxes. After they're done, we'll clean the house and get some rest for the BIG DRIVE.

Good-bye, dear Lochgreen

Will be a mighty busy day today, with closing in the morning and then movers coming to pack all our worldly possessions. Should be exciting!

We've had some nice times and memories here...
