We decided to pack out ourself and do it all on our own because of how "particular" we both are about our things and how efficiently it gets packed. We spent a lot longer than planned packing and cleaning which put us on the road about 8 hours later than we anticipated...but on the road nonetheless. We passed thru Florida to Georgia then onto Tennessee. We had planned to stop in Nashville, TN for the night but as the night turned into early morning we settled for Chattanooga, TN instead.
The following day we awoke to the chilliest weather yet and had to let the trucks warm up while we ate breakfast...it was that cold. On the road we saw some very cool waterfall like formations that had frozen over and I multi-tasked and took a picture while driving. Come to find out Halana had the same idea in the Uhaul truck too.
On day two we started out in Tennessee, passed through Kentucky and then onto Indiana before we made it to our destination Illinois. We had printed out a mapquest of how to get to the house, but it failed us. Our second attempt was the GPS, it failed us. After being extremely frustrated and lost for 20 minutes we called our landlord to get us back on track. 25 minutes later we arrived at 9 p.m. at night and we were exhausted. We didn't even have the strength to get pillows and blankets out, we roughed in on the floor next to a heater vent.
