We planned on leaving Austin around lunch time and didn't leave until 9:30pm Friday evening. We told the Larders we'd be on the road by 6 or 6:30pm! We were miserable!
And now starts our Gringo Withdrawal!
Leaving....We moved boxes into friend's houses when we ran out of room in our storage unit and had a maid clean the house, and we still thought this move would never end. By late afternoon, we still had a garage full of stuff to fit in the 4-Runner. There's no way it was all going to fit....we made several trips to the dumpster, a few more trips to the storage unit, packed and stuffed the 4-Runner and ran out of room. It was the worst move ever...never ending it seemed. Try packing your 2-story home in a 8x15 storage unit and Toyota 4-Runner! Lessons learned...never skimp on a storage unit, when hiring movers have them pack your furniture along with all of your boxes, and start packing up each room at a time.
