New adventure begins

So I've been very very quiet over the last month or so.

This is because I am on the verge of moving across the country. And as some of you may know, it is a difficult journey generally. Add to that difficulty the idea of moving almost 300 snakes with you, and it gets to be a massive undertaking.

I have been blessed with a fantastic group of friends that have helped me in moving these animals across the country before I myself end up over there.

This helps in two ways: my sanity is relatively maintained while I travel, and I am able to focus more on getting the rest of my life over there.

We are still taking some animals with us while we are on our four day road trip, but not the quantities that would have needed to happen without help.

We are also taking our two dogs, some stuff, and each will be driving a car. It's going to be FUN. It will be an adventure that we have not done together before, and Joel had never lived anywhere but Southern California.

Our personal stuff is already ahead of us as well, being taken in boxes across the country. This means that Joel and I are living out of our suitcases. No fridge, no laundry, no bed. What does that mean? Eating out all the time (and gaining so much weight), minimal clothes and sleeping on the floor.

Tomorrow we are on our way driving. We will take four days, and end up in Charlotte before the July 4th holiday.

So I may be quiet again for a little, but photos will be coming!

Here we go!
