    Ok, for those of you who are wondering WHEN we are leaving this pebble....well it looks like sometime mid to end of April.
    Hubby has a school he has to fly away to, then will come back and by then I should have everything packed up and we should be in a hotel by then.
    With the way they work it, they give us 10 days travel and 8 days "proceed". Total of 18 days to get to where we are going. Yes, flying time counts! He has a school he has to report to on May 24th. So, backing that up, puts us the beginning of May. Hubby is wanting to add a couple of weeks leave time to that so we are quite as rushed in our travels since we will be sending the van into Los Angeles, picking it up, then driving cross country to VIRGINIA!!!
    I already told hubby that there ARE stops, even if it's just lunch or dinner or a cup of coffee that I have to make. Plus, he wants to see his parents (ugh!) but also I want to spend at least another week with MY babies!!
    So, everyone keep EVERYTHING crossed that this stays this way, we get what we want and I'll soon be off this pebble forever!

    You and anyone are more than welcome to come visit anytime/anywhere I live. I will always have a place for people to stay. Might have to put a lock on my door so my stash doesn't grow legs and disappear lol

    I am just sooo excited, but want to try to keep it at bay because when I do get excited, there is usually a pin right around the corner waiting to burst my bubble.

    Terri I'm soooo pleased for you and will keep everything crossed that they'll be no pins to burst any bubbles! Virginia? Is that West Virginia (sorry my US geography sucks!) like in the song 'Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains..' etc Would be appropriate if it were - take me home, country roads! :D

    LOL
    No, not West "by God" Virginia.
    This is VIRGINIA...right underneath Washington, DC and above South Carolina. Right on the coast, 1/2 way down.

    No, well, yes.
    Virginia is EAST coast.
    West Virginia is just to the west of Virginia, still close to east coast.
    Are you confused yet?

    Hah! I'm easily confused! Thanks for the map - i think I was confusing West Virginia with Washington State and DC because one of them is east coast and one west? Does that make ANY sense at all? :lol:

    Yes Barb. This will be our 4th drive cross country. Ok, only 3d for hubby since the drive from CT to CA in 2002, it was just me and Courtney and the cats. Hubby was already in HI. He flew out there 3 months earlier.
    It is a great drive, I now have a Tom-Tom to help, plus I have this REALLY COOL atlas that I take everywhere with me.
    It will be a rushed trip, since I KNOW we won't get the extra time we are wanting, but as long as we are off the pebble, NEVER to come back, I'll be happy.

    That certainly is great news! I hope all goes well with the move and the drive! PS: it's above North Carolina, don't want to confuse anyone else :) When we go camping in VA maybe we can meet up :P

    Terri - I can tell that you are doing the hApPy DaNcE!!!!!!! I am so happy for you! We visit my BIL in VA frequently. He lives about 30 miles east of DC, near Fairfax. If you are anywhere near, maybe we can meet sometime and scope out the LQS's.

    Thanks for sharing the good news.

    YEAH!!! Virginia is a wonderful place, are you going to be in Norfolk? Only a few hours from my house and there's a really fun quilt show every February in Hampton. You'll have a blast coming across country that time of year.

    We will be in Little Creek/Norfolk area, so pretty much central on the east coast.

    Oh, no worries Sharon. I already told hubby we ARE making a stop off to see you on our way. He says that NC is NOT on the way, but I told him it was! Told him that we drive from CA to KS, then to AL to see grandbabies. Then we cross into GA and if we are in GA, if we don't stop to see Maryellen, "the world would cease to exist as I know it". Those are HER words lol
    So, after there, it's just a drive up 95 so we would HAVE to stop and see you because by then, we would be wanting a Rest Stop and that would be near you! :) :) :)
