Making Moves

Last Friday I began the official move from Columbia to Greenville. This could also be known as the great transfer of "stuff". I told Blair that I think all of my summers as a camper and then a camp counselor make me a semi-professional packer/mover and hauler of all things. I have moved myself before (not furniture, lets not get ahead of ourselves) and this move was more of the same. I did however learn a few things that I will now share with you all:

1. When packing a car, do NOT, I repeat, do not pack your high-heeled shoes in a container with no lid and then place said container on a pile of other packed goods right behind the driver's seat. When you have to stop suddenly or make a turn, this will become a hazard and you might lose an eye and at the very least gain a nice bruise.

2. If you are driving from Columbia to Greenville and your gas light comes on, you should stop. Immediately. You will not find another gas station until you are in a full on panic and start looking at your gas light like it is suddenly going to turn off or start laughing at you because you didn't stop when you had the chance. And do not just chance it and get off at an exit assuming that there will be a gas station, there won't be. You are in the middle of nowhere.

That's all for now but I am sure as the unpacking process begins I will have several more priceless gems of moving knowledge to share. I hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for reading!
