Good luck, and have fun on the road trip!

one small request though.... if you have the time, can you set a prewritten blog statement to appear once per day, detailing anything? Maybe just where you expect to be that day. I found it fun when I did that on my vacation last May, and if nothing else, the possible unmoderated comments could be interesting.

Don't over do it on the move! Try not to let small problems overwhelm you. Everytime I've had to move there is always a plethora of small problems that on their own are nothing, but add up to being really annoying.

Yay for road trips!

Good luck with everything! I can't believe you're feeding a friend's cat in the middle of all this!
