I'm blogging from my new home in Texas! We survived the move and crazy 30 hr drive! I'm about halfway unpacked, but the rest of it will have to wait for later this week.
I had anticipated embarking on the drive on Saturday, since my husband was flying in from Texas on Friday night. But he had different plans and surprised me Wednesday evening at work! I'll save his surprise for another post. ;)
The 30 Hour Drive...
We ended up leaving on Friday afternoon, around 3pm.
Car all packed and ready to go. Bikes strapped to the back. Roof Bag (i.e. a giant duffle bag) strapped to the top of the car. I wasn't so sure about this Roof Bag holding up since I don't have a roof rack and unfortunately we had to pack it full of my clothes. Like all my clothes except for shoes and my nicer dresses. I was keeping an eye on it incessantly during the entire trip. Happy to say it stayed on!
Somewhere in New Mexico
Where are the signs for Radiator Springs?
We stopped for lunch at this yummy salad place, Vinaigrette, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Highly recommended if you find yourself in the area!
YAY! We made it! With 6 more hours to drive...
Oh, yes, we stopped for Chick-fil-A on the way home. Pretty tasty!
We arrived in Dallas moments before midnight. So happy to be home!
We did the drive from Santa Cruz, CA to Dallas, TX in about 30 hours. We drove non-stop, aside from a few meals and to stretch, etc. My husband drove the bulk of the trip and I'm amazed he was able to stay awake. He did this same drive just 6 months ago when he moved out to Dallas and he swore he would never do it again. Oops... The things we do for love?
It will definitely be interesting living together again. I can already tell we've developed our own habits living separately for 6 months. But we're both just glad to be back together. :)
