For those following at home, you probably know I'm involved (ooooo baby) with juliebata. However, if you read my journal and not hers, you would be forgiven for thinking the extent of our relationship is an occasional phone call. Um, actually, we talk daily, and it's always fun. And we always learn a little bit about each other. Sometimes a lot!
The current plan -- which has us both excited, scared, happy, and hopeful -- is that she'll move here in mid/late September. Actually, it's more than a current plan: she's given notice at work, to her landlord, has arranged for the shipping of her stuff... WAUGH! as Charlie Brown might say. Hah!
My current plan is to fly to Chicago Friday or Saturday (9 or 10 September), spend the weekend with my sisters, take a bus up to Madison Monday, and stay in the Fairfield Inn for a couple days. Julie will pack on Tuesday and clean on Wednesday, and I'll help as much as my back and allergies allow (hopefully, quite a bit for both; I'd feel like a jerk to be in town and unable to help. Hah!). Wednesday evening we'll spend hours in the hot tub, and Thursday morning we'll hit the road as early as possible. (The actual dates will slide back and forth, of course, this IS a month and a half away, after all.) Our route back will be semi relaxed. Not exactly meandering across the country, but not exactly a straight shot either.
And then we'll be in Seattle, able to explore each other in every sense of the word with complete freedom of time. She'll be looking for work, and I'll be going to school, but we'll be snuggling and learning to live together and get along for more than a long weekend.
This sounds like an excellent plan for both of you, and I wish you the best.
having just done the straight shot from charleston, sc I can't recommend it. it's not much fun shooting pictures from the car window at 80-85 mph, but making the trip itself was fun.
Hopefully we'll pull over often enough for some actual scenic vista shooting.
Or, Julie will go slightly nuts wondering why I'm taking pictures of empty cheap motel rooms and swimming pools and rusty signs and whatnot. Hah!

Sounds like a great plan. Happy...happy to one and all!
Thank you! As I say above, it's exciting and scary and...

Hey Luke, congratulations!
Like most of your fans at home, I've been following the trans-continental romance avidly. I'm really pleased for both of youIt's really great that you two are making this work. I look forward to numerous pictures from your road trip.

I'm so happy for you two! congrats!
Why thank you. And you might be happy to know one of the questions she faces: Sell her wedding dress or bring it for Brides of March? ;>

I think I missed something; why does she have a wedding dress she's wondering what to do with? But BoM is a great thing to do with an unneeded dress, certainly. And we can certainly accomodate more cool chicks at BoM to go with all the burly, hairy guys. :-)
It's from her first marriage.
Yay! That sounds great :)
Thank you, I hope it goes well. Yeah!
