I never want to see another box

Packing follows the 90-90 rule. I had allowed for that. Unfortunately, it also follows Hofstadter’s Law, so we spend the entire weekend packing. Dan and Mark helped with things I couldn’t lift on my own. Afterwards, we bought them dinner, and took them home. This morning, almost all of our worldly possessions were taken away on the truck, and a huge weight of worry was lifted from my shoulders. The stuff we still have with us (clothes, a few books, two laptops, iPod, etc) looks as if it’ll fit in the car with the rear seats folded down, possibly even without obstructing the rear view.


It’s starting to look pretty empty in the house, as most of our stuff is now boxed to go. With that in mind, here’s our approximate planned route: I-90 to NY via Springfield, MA. I-90, I-87, I-84 to PA. Possible stops at New Paltz. I-84, I-380, I-81 via Scranton, PA. Possible stop at Harrisburg, PA. I-81 through MD to WV, via Hagerstown. I-81 through WV to VA. I-81, I-66, I-64, I-81 again.
