Leaving in a Uhaul tonight!

Well I survived the local 5.0 earthquake. It was only centered about 30 miles away and my wife really felt it, but I was in the basement and I didn't even notice. Regardless I missed my first mediocore earthquake. It was centered 15miles NW of Evansville, IN.

Anyway, we're leaving tonight for Pensacola, Florida. I have the 24 foot Uhaul outside with the auto transport. The mustang is going to be towed behind the Uhaul. I noticed the Uhaul has a box attached to the kick panel that keeps track of speed. I don't think I like that. The trailer only has straps that tie around the front wheels and chains that go around the frame. I'm a little uneasy with that as well but the Uhaul guy assured me I'd be okay. Anyway, I probably won't be on the net for a long time so take care all and have fun at corn feed! I wish I was there!

Bish -

Best of luck on the move, getting settled, and new jobs. It's been really quiet around here (and chat) without you. Get back on soon!!!

Cool Sig pic, BTW! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif Power Tour was a great time, not just the cars, but meeting you & "hanging" together for 4 days - It will be a weekend that I'll remeber for a long time!

Best of luck in Florida! Remember, we'll still let you come back to the Midwest! BTW, I hear that they have some teacher openings in the Piper School District - over 1/2 the teachers have resigned after last year's plagiarism scandal!!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
I didn't even feel the quake either....... Your leaving Indiana for Florida? I wish I was in your shoes..... I may down that way next year..... Ill stop by and give you a holler!
Hope you have a good trip. Don't worry about the tie down on the trailer. I towed my cougar from VT to VA on one of those and didn't have a problem.
Good! You're just in time for hurricane season!

I'll be at CFII this weekend, otherwise I'd love to help you unpack. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

Glad to hear you decided on the move to Florida. Have a safe trip. I'll talk to you after you get settled.

Florida's gain is the Midwest's loss.
Good luck. Hope you enjoy your new home.
Safe journey, my friend. Watch out for flamingos...

Good luck buddy, watch for the thieves on the way down.
Good luck Bud !!! And keep a REAL close eye on teh straps that go over the tires. They have a bad habit of working themselves loose. Ask me how I know!!!
