On the road, back to Provo

All packed up and ready to hit the road! We're going back to Provo pretty much the same way we left - trailer & trunk packed full and my bike duct taped to the roof of the car. This time around we are minus one couch and plus one sister, who desperately wanted to get back to Provo to see her friends, so we found space to take her with us.


We make really bad time pulling the trailer, especially over the mountain passes, so we had planned to take two days for the drive. Once we were actually on the road, though, the need to "just get there" overrode everything else (hunger, antsy legs,tiredness, etc...) and we ended up driving straight through.

Right now we are settling into our new place, which feels huge compared to our last apartment (I could plug the vacuum in by the front door and vacuum the whole house without ever having to use a different outlet). It's really not that big, but since this place has another bedroom, a hallway, a kitchen that can fit our table and an oven that can fit a pyrex pan, it feels like we've really upgraded!

We still have a few things to find, including a couch, a desk, and a dresser, although I think Dave is really enjoying his temporary license to keep his clothes on the floor :)
