Made It to Minnesota!
This past weekend and early week we made the big move from New Hampshire to Minnesota. Our original plan had been to hook a trailer up to Snoopy the Subaru, but after a long saga of trying to get a hitch on, we ended up just renting a truck and leaving Monday afternoon, later than we had hoped. This arrangement meant we had to drive to whole way in two different cars, Snoopy and a large Yellow Penske Truck (see above). We stayed at my parents in Cleveland Monday night (getting in at 2 am) and took off the next morning. Using some creative navigation around Chicago, we avoided any major traffic (Carolyn was convinced I was lost as I hopped from freeway to freeway).
After 23 hours of driving, we made it to Minneapolis. Our apartment is small, but we crammed all of our boxes of stuff inside. We may be switching apartments on August 1st, so we may wait until after then to fully unpack.
