I’ve mentioned previously that Bill and I are moving. Bill’s already gone. I miss him a lot.
But that’s not the part I need help with. The part I need help with is some fuzzbutts and travel.
So, the good things:
- I probably don’t have to pack us
- I don’t have to drive a moving van
- I’m going to have company for driving the car
- The fuzzbutts, my company, & I have places to stay for three of the four nights of travel
- It’ll be over with soon
- One pup occasionally gets carsick
- I have nearly no idea how to prepare for this move
Really, it’s that last point pushing me to turn to you guys. It’s been nearly eight years since my last long-distance move, and I wasn’t moving any pets at that time. Further, it wasn’t four nights on the road. Finally, I had all my stuff with me. I’ve never moved without all my stuff with me.
Bill will have already settled into our new home a little. His family out there has said they can loan us a few pots, pans, plates, etc. But it’ll be pretty barren until the truck arrives. And Labor Day is the weekend the truck should arrive, if all goes according to plan. Except it’s Labor Day weekend, so it actually will not.
So, in this one, I turn to you guys. What should I make sure is in the car with me, my company, and the fuzzbutts? I drive a Subaru Impreza hatchback, and I have one of those cargo containers on top. I know I need clothing, toiletries, meds, dog crates, and dog food.
What else do I need to take? Is there anything Bill should be sure to purchase once he gets into our new place?
