The movers are done, the cleaners are done, the carpet cleaners are done and the keys have been handed over to our tenants.
However, there are still lots more details to go before we fire up the diesel. The last of the pre-trip giveaways need to be dropped off at Goodwill. I have to wedge the car that we're leaving behind in the garage with all our worldly belongings that don't fit in Landshark. Spare paperwork to help with filing residency has been scanned and needs to go back into the safety deposit box. A change of address card needs to be filed with the post office & DMV. And of course, Martha's car needs to be detailed. As with parenthood, marriage needs a certain flexibility and sometimes that includes detailing a vehicle moments before one goes on a 10+ day cross country drive across the incredibly dusty southwest.
I will say that I no longer am planning on staying at a BLM campsite tonight.
And if I decide to stop along the way and get the Landshark washed for the first time in 4 months, so be it.
