Last night I returned to Winchester with the very last load of stuff from Illinois.

This was the 10th trip, which included:

4 trips with my Colorado pulling a 6'x12' Uhaul trailer
3 trips with my Colorado pulling my own utility trailer
1 trip with a friends 10,000lb trailer and Dodge 3500 Dually
1 trip with a 26' Uhaul box truck - the biggest they had
1 trip with 4'x5' Uhaul trailer

Had to put new tires and brakes on the Colorado and I am sure the transmission is worn from all of this work. I also had to put a tire on my friends trailer and also two new fronts on his Dually due to road damage. The roads in Kentucky and Indiana are terrible - and I thought Illinois was bad (it is...).

And with that - the Illinois house will go to the new owners on the 27th and we will be free of Illinois and their taxes.

We are doing a remote closing so we don't have to drive back up for that.

Maggie has settled into her job as the HR lead ("People Lead") at the Manchester Walmart, and I am enjoying working from home in TN watching the birds in the back yard from the "office" family room while I work.

This last load had the truck loaded down with the rest of my Jack Daniels collection. It's good to have it down here with us.

Welcome to Tennessee! I bet you are seeing white traffic lines speed by in your dreams.

Good to hear from you and glad all is well. Moving long distances is a challenge at best. Glad the move went relatively well but those expenses do add up. I'm sure you will enjoy the lower tax base and even more importantly the riding there. Glad all's well.  8)
