Anddd, we're on the road! At the moment in Amarillo, Texas... But it wasn't easy getting here.
Our plan was to leave Florida and make a stop in Burleson, Texas to get our stuff out of storage and into a POD. All was looking great and we were ahead of schedule when about an hour out of Burleson our truck became un-driveable. I'm not sure what exactly happened, but somehow some screws backed out and tore up our transmission. So stuck at a truck stop in 105 degree weather with a broken generator(which means no a/c) we waited... The truck stop we were waiting at happened to be the towns hangout and gathering area. Everyone was really nice and we were able to find someone to repair the truck and score some free root beer floats.
Some good friends of ours picked up all us kids and took us to their house so we would have a place to stay for the night while my parents waited to see what was going to be done to the truck. Eventually the RV was towed to Burleson and we waited it out a few days while the truck was worked one.
It ended up being really good for me because I was able to meet up with one of my best friends who was in Texas from Utah. It was really fun and we were able to go to a Rangers Baseball game which is a favorite of my families.
Anyways, there's a quick update. We're here and should be on the road tomorrow morning and headed to Utah for stop.
Keep on truckin'!
