we rolled into town, got the keys to the place, looked around, dumped a bunch of boxes and some furniture in, and then checked into a motel for the night (as planned).

annoying bits: after arriving, discovering that once you enter the subdivision, it has a "tree" structure with not even a cul-de-sac to turn around in, meaning i had to figure out very quickly how to turn around with a trailer. otherwise, towing a car behind the truck wasn't that big of a deal. granted, going up hills was rough.

so far it looks like nothing really important broke, though some cheap furniture wiggled back and forth enough to get a little loose.

so we wish the kitchen was bigger but we can annex adjacent space as prep space because it's a relatively open design. I don't like how there's a microwave above the range.

some of the doors to closets are a bit damaged. and the hookups for the washer (we should get one) are leaking - the emergency repair guy is getting to it, presumably, while we're at the motel.

for dinner, would you believe we ordered DOMINO'S of all things? it was pretty decent, in fact, for the price point.

anyway, that's all i can think of now. closing all these knot-tying pages.

I would.  It'd be my go-to after driving and unloading a bit.

When I moved from Utah to Virginia I had my car on a trailer behind the U-Haul. Going up I-70 to the Eisenhower Tunnel (which is above 10,000 feet) I looked to my right and saw a bicycle on the frontage road. Passing me. Seriously wondered if I was going to have to turn around, head south, and find a lower pass.

Going down from the tunnel the truck stalled so I got to deadstick half way into Denver.

Earth First!
(We can strip mine the rest later.)

Oh man yeah hills with the truck and car trailer... we went through the .. I-80? tunnels through the appalachians and did not appreciate it. We dropped the trailer immediately (did we go straight to the uhaul place before going to our apartment? idk) as that east coast town has tiny streets, rude to find it out on first arrival.

Nice to have a washer in the house. Welcome!
