Well, the date has been set for my first roadtrip in a long time (I do plan an impromptu one as soon as I get a new auto, but right now that's not on the menu).
I am set to depart my humble abode here in Phoenix on October 11th of this year, for a very short trip to Phoenix Sky Harbor, where I will fly to EAT (if anyone knows what airport has this code, they win... my congratulations for finding it...) via Seattle. From there, I will spend only one day with family, and helping my friend pack his car and/or moving van.
We will then travel 2 days back to Phoenix. This will be a "speed run", so we will depart at about Midnight that thursday (the 13th) and not stop until... oh lets say 7 pm or when our legs threaten mutiny, which ever occurs first.
The next day will be straight through to Phoenix. If we get there in the early evening, we will continue to my apartment in East Phoenix. If it's nearly 7, we will just crash at the first motel 6 or super 8 we come across in the north end of the city, and make it to the house in the morning (we really don't want to spend all night setting up a futon for him after we spent ungodly hours driving).
I will keep you all updated as far as what exactly will be our mode of transport, either my friend's car towing a uhaul trailer, or a small uhaul towing or following with my friend's car. And once it's over, I hope that I have been able to somewhat track expenses and will try and get some photos up within 2-3 weeks (I don't have a digital camera, so it will be Disposable cameras developed with the Photo CD option checked.)
I know it seems absurd for someone to begin planning a roadtrip set for October in July, but this is a move... and because it involved me flying up, we had to start early. Btw, anyone who wants to fly PHX to EAT one-way right now is looking at $166.20 for 10/11/05 via Alaska/Horizon Air... or a little over $300 for Roundtrip. Which is not bad considering it's not a major airport!
