The time has come!!

Postby stumpjumper1590 » Thu May 09, 2013 9:35 am

Fellas I am starting my trip to Texas in about five hours so wish me luck. 4,170 miles and we are gonna try and get it done in four days. The truck is packed with 1,520 pounds of clothes, baby stuff, and a couple of furniture items, doubled up on the spare tires just incase, filling up 15 gallons worth of gas jugs. We have done this drive once before in three and a half days but that was before baby came along. So like I said wish me luck and I will keep y'all updated!

Glad to hear you are heading back to the good state! Be careful on the drive and hopefully the baby will allow you to make good time, even though that rarely happens.

Where are you moving to?

Looks like you should be in Corpus by now, hope it was a good drive man. Lets see some pictures.
