The truck came early this morning and had everything out of the house by about 1:30. While the movers were here I was pretty bored with nothing to do.

Since then we've been cleaning and taking pictures for RMLS. Pretty slow day.

Dinner in a bit here, then maybe another movie at the theater to kill some time, then sleeping on the floor (or the chair we're leaving + beanbag in front of it... almost bed-like), then carpet cleaners really early while I load up the car w/ clothes and some food while Dina goes and gets money for her car (she's meeting a buyer tomorrow morning... his bank wasn't open today)

Then the 640 miles drive.

You enjoying this play-by-play? Enthralling, huh?

Play by play

I know I do

Having a navigation system makes me almost want to drive 640 miles just for the heck of it. Did you bother looking at a map, or are you letting the Audi take care of you all the way ? :)

Re: Play by play

It's actually a pretty simple route: stay on I-5, I-5, I-5... 505 around Sacramento, 80, 850, 80, 80, ... 101... follow signs to San Francisco I'm sure. Cesar Chavez exit... and then we're really close and we've walked around there.

Now, if the car drove itself..... that'd be cool.

I think I've done that stretch of I-5 like 10 or 12 times now.

watch out, the last 10% of the drive is exponentially longer than the 90% before it.

Yes, and yes.

However, I managed to luck out and be doing it at 1 PM, so I was able to use the carpool lane and avoid sitting in the damn San Jose traffic.

And Brad -- yes, enthralling, that's the word. MORE I DEMAND MORE!

It would be more enthralling as a photo essay, you know.

Hate USB cables and removing compactflash cards. Need WiFi in camera.

Actually, need to setup camera phone posting. I got it working w/ the Nokia upload protocol, but haven't integrated it into LJ/FotoBilder yet.

I am enjoying it, actually and it is at least semi-enthralling. Since we can't all move to SF, we are living vicariously through you and Dina! :D

Well, you probably already know that it's been raining here in Francisco for the past week, so it should feel like Portland. The Chinese New Year's parade was last Saturday, and by tradition, it rains on the day of the parade just about every year.
