we made it

We made it. DC is awesome. We have this awesome place with no furniture so we've been sleeping on the floor and eating on cardboard boxes (well, that was confusing, we have plates, but not table or chairs...we weren't really eating off the cardboard). We thought it would be a little easier than this to find furniture, but whoa, it is a little harder than expected. Pics to come soon, as soon as we have a spare minute. The last few days it has been, work for me all day while Julie looks for furniture, then drive all over the place looking at stuff, finding what we want and then it isn't in stock for a month...until 11 at night. Wake up, repeat. Hopefully we'll get things going here. Stay tuned.

on to dc!

Hey there. We are driving. I don't know if there has ever been a car that is so packed full of stuff. It was like the best game of tetris you've ever played as we jammed everything in with some nifty precision. Technology is cool. I am typing on my laptop that is tethered to my iphone which is working as a modem. I am the true traveling salesman this week with my "mobile office" aka our sweet car. We'll post pics as we progress. We're driving first to Big Bear Lake in California to meet up with is Julie's family for their reunion, which will be awesome. Then from there we're making the long trek across the country. You might be saying "why on earth would you drive to California and leave from there? it is totally the wrong direction!" The answer is simply, "if you're going to drive across the country, might as well drive the who distance, not just 3/4 of it."

These are exciting times. Nothing like a road trip...(for the first day or so at least.)
