Road Trip!

Here we go!  I was a little intimidated about driving a 17 foot U-Haul truck to Tybee all by myself but I gave myself a pep talk.  I reminded myself of my "vast" prior experience driving Kristen's stuff to college at UVa years ago and I took courage.

And so we're off!

Halfway to Tybee I made a quick stop in Dublin, GA for lunch and a potty break at Burger King--they have a great field next to the parking lot with lots of room for the truck!  Yeah, I know, not the most nutritional diet but hey, I'm a truck driver and I need my energy--right?

 Next stop--The Coral Cottage!


Everything went perfectly--almost everything.

There was one little mishap that happened when I made a slightly too-sharp turn into the yard.  Thankfully this was the only damage...the truck suffered no harm.

  Oh well...we're here and it's all good!

  1. YEAH!!you made it! I can't wait to see what you guys have loaded in that truck! I know it will be amazing....Last week my husband drove a 27 ft UHaul from Kentucky to Florida moving us. I followed in his pickup truck. I think it was more scary for me following him than he driving the big truck.

  2. Congratulations on your move too! I know you are busy so thanks for reading! Hope you get settled in quickly and keep me posted on how your move is going!

  3. I'd be scared to drive one of those things. They are so big.


    1. It was kind of scary--any larger truck and I don't think I would have attempted it.
