After a long day involving an under-estimated amount of stuff (by the moving company) coupled with a trailer that was shared with two other families (one from Detroit and the other from Chicago), we are finally on the road.
Unfortunately our goal of camping or staying with friends along the way has already been thrown out the window. Since we had a late start, not leaving home until 7 PM, we drove to Cedar Rapids and a Fairfield Inn.
The van has been a great vehicle for us. So much room to stretch out in - and it's a great highway machine. 20 MPG at 70 MPH, not bad for 4500 lbs.
On to Boulder tomorrow. Hopefully.
Time for some much-needed rest.
