Moving Day is set...

I will be leaving CALIFORNIA as of OCTOBER 1, 2007
Here's my Route:  GOOGLE MAP LINK

Well, I've planned out my itinerary with the help of Google Maps, my TomTom ONE GPS device and the Motel 6 website... and it looks like my whole schedule will be: (I've got reservations in Motel 6's all across the country):

Monday 10.01.07 end up in KINGMAN, AZ -- Hotel Phone: 928-753-9222
Tuesday 10.02.07 end up in ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- Hotel Phone: 505-883-8813
Wednesday 10.03.07 end up in OKLAHOMA CITY. OK -- Hotel Phone: 405-947-6550
Thursday 10.04.07 crash in ST.LOUIS, MO -- Hotel Phone: 314-427-1313
Friday & Saturday 10.05.07 - 10.06.07 in LOUISVILLE, KY (meeting John Armstrong finally yay! Gonna catch an Art Show with him on Saturday) -- Hotel Phone: 502-473-0000
Sunday 10.07.07, crash at Grandma's in HAYSI. VA

A seven day trip all in all. Motel 6 is cheap and they accept pets. Here's hoping there are no fleas or roaches. If any of you live near where I am crashing and you wanna say Hi and get dinner or something those evenings I'm in town... My Cell Phone will be with me as always and that number is still the same: 559-300-7586. I know I'll have signal most of the way there, but once in Virginia I know I have NO SIGNAL at Grandma's. If someone needs to reach me call her land line @: 276-865-4240. (I beg you not to call her until AFTER I get there guys, she's 79 be nice.)

My iPOD is loaded with my ENTIRE music library and enough audio books and anime episodes to get me through a week of hotel living and driving...
I have the cat carriers already to go (Got them the medium/small dog ones so they have more room than their cat sized ones.)
I have them both vaccinated and Jack got his balls lopped off. (Needy was already spayed)
Got new glasses ordered, all my stuff packed except my day to day living stuff and all that is in storage until my Parents come out to Virgina (Whenever they sell the house.)
So I will be living MINIMAL until goodness knows when. No books, no movies, no internet, no NOTHING except grass roots BASICS until... I have no clue. 1 month to 3 years not a clue.

So little time left to squeeze in all my last minute things and get those loose ends tied up. Going out by myself is rather daunting but I have to, I need to get established there and I need a JOB asap. It will be up to me to finance a place for me and my parents to live so I have to get established there ASAP so I can apply for home loans and such. 

jo_mako came down to give me a Bon Voyage yesterday and it was nice. She and caro_t and I just Bull shitted and what not it was nice I'mm miss you both a bunch so you'll have to come out and visit me sometime when I ya know, get a place to LIVE that isn't my Grandma's pull out sofa! LOL.

So, yeah, there you have it.
The Big Move Cross-Country is Nigh!

O_O Wha?? What deep dark rock was I under when this was in the works? Did I repress the knowledge because it's just too shocking? *Hugs closely* You moving out of California is like...one of the signs of the Apocylapse, isn't it??

Whatever happens, take care of yourself, love. Hope you have your sanity when you get back--and you ARE coming back. With lots of new stuff to spam us with, right?? *Clings* *Crosses finger for you*

I've not been forthincoming with updates lately. ^_^ I'll be back on-line YES.
Sep. 17th, 2007 01:05 am (UTC)
I wish I could have stayed longer to annoy ya. =( I am glad though I got to see ya before you head out though, so I feel a *little* better about that, but it's like nonny said...Whatever happens, take care of yourself, love. *huggles*

Hey, maybe I can swing up Louisville way and meet up with you? Less than 3 hours away.... :o)

Sep. 17th, 2007 01:49 am (UTC)
Great! I'll be getting in afternoon sometime on Friday and checking out probably around 10am or so on Sunday morning. :) Just give me a call and let me know what's up when I get there and who knows I will be living close enough to maybe help you out the next time you do your Nashville-con. ^_^

I have an aunt who lives in Portland, TN. ^_^

Have a safe trip~! Having done the move from CA to NJ, man can I say it is stressful. You've given yourself plenty of time though~ And staying at pet friendly hotels sure helps. XD Best of luck~! Stay safe. :<

(I find it kinda sweet that, regardless of circumstances, we've both moved from CA towards the East Coast this year!)

We night get to see each other, who knows

Well dude, it better be soon. And my number was listed in the post above. Gimme a call.
Sep. 17th, 2007 03:38 am (UTC)
I also apparently missed this. o_o

Motel 6 allows pets, hmm...? There's something to keep in mind - we have one of their books which we keep in the car along with the Super 8 book, so we can find cheap motels wherever we may wind up for the night. ;) I was just expressing today that I'd decided to check how far I-90 went, and discovered it stretches all the way from east coast to west coast, and sometime I'd like to drive it in its entirety. There was the question of what to do with critters, though...

Hmm, Virginia... does this mean you may wind up at Otakon next year? Then again, looking at the map, you're kind of on the opposite end of Virginia...

I drove to y-con which was a cross state trek and we're a bigger state than VA. Maybe sometime I'll make another con. ^_^

Best of luck, D! Hope it all settles out for you and everything goes smoothly.

*note to self: do not freak if D disappears for a while.*
Sep. 17th, 2007 07:35 am (UTC)
Have a safe trip. I hope all goes well for you! *huggles*
Sep. 17th, 2007 08:13 am (UTC)
Good luck on your trip! At least the roads in Kentucky are gorgeous where there's not roadkill
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:45 pm (UTC)
Oh I've driven those roads LOADS of times I know it's lovely there. Thanks!
Sep. 17th, 2007 11:02 am (UTC)
Wow, you'll go right past me! (I'm in Gallup) I'd ask ya to stop by and say hi, but that's a looooong trip. FYI, there's quite a few Casinos between here and Albuquerque, so there are plenty of rest stops. Oh! You gotta check out Cline's Corner! (not a casino, just a tourist trap) It's East of Albuquerque and one of my favorite stops. They have a lot of kish. ^^ I recommend getting a kachina doll. They're Navajo in origin, always male, and traditionally anatomically correct -ish. ^_~ I don't know about modern made dolls, though. Just look under their "skirt". XD

Anyway, good luck on your trip! *hugs* And try to have some fun along the way. ^_~
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:46 pm (UTC)
No casinos or sightseeing for me. I'm driving straight through really with no distractions. Wish I could afford KISH, I'll be lucky to eat on my way through
Sep. 17th, 2007 02:10 pm (UTC)
Good luck D! I'll have to visit you sometime once you're settled into your new place. You'll be about 6 1/2 hours from me haha. It would be worth it though. Have a safe move!
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:47 pm (UTC)
Yup, we'll have to do occasional weekend get-togethers that would be fun,
Sep. 18th, 2007 04:02 pm (UTC)
yep! I'm planning on having a wine and dine party in the next few months. I'll keep you posted :)
Sep. 18th, 2007 08:56 pm (UTC)
great ^_^
Sep. 17th, 2007 10:06 pm (UTC)
errr....random lurker commenting as possible forewarning...
Which highway are you taking in St. Louis, cause one of the highways is under major construction. I want to say it's 70 that's underconstruction, but I'm not in St. Louis enough to be sure or for how much longer the construction is going on. I've contacted my mother who drives there every week, unfortunatley she's got limited internet at the moment. But I thought you should have a heads up that the construction has not been the best thing for the traffic.
Sep. 18th, 2007 03:48 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up. I should be hitting it though at a good time of day to avoid rush hour traffic. Thanks!

Sep. 19th, 2007 08:06 am (UTC)
Wow - have a safe trip. Good luck finding a job and getting settled.
