Moving Cross-Country Countdown (T – 16 Days)

Or, Relocating From NC to WA


On June 11, 2015 I’m packing my pickup truck and taking off across the country. My husband, ten-year-old daughter, our dog Nia, and our tortoise Princess are tagging along. I have no idea how I’m going to manage, but I’m just going to take a deep breath and jump off the cliff.

My husband’s last day as a member of the active-duty military is Halloween 2015. Rather than wait with him in Jacksonville, NC and travel together with a moving van to our new home, I want to be in our new city in the summer so I can interview for a position that starts in early September.

I decided the best idea for my daughter and myself was to drive to Washington as soon as her school year ended and get settled. My husband will follow a couple months later.

I figured the best way to stay sane is share the pain with you. Join me on this wild ride?

    I’m considering a cross country relocation myself. Love to hear about your journey and how it all goes! Are you downsizing? Taking everything with you?

    • Anna Abner Anna Abner

      I didn’t want to downsize, but I have to anyway. 🙂 It’s tough deciding what goes and what gets sold, but I know it will all work out for the best. Where are you and where are you moving to?
