I am looking on websites for exact locations of grocery stores, libraries, banks, etc (all of the places I want to be within a 5 minute drive from), and putting sticky arrows on the map pieces, so I get get a great big picture of what area I want to live in, so I can narrow down my employment options in that area.

I got all of the Walmart SuperCenters, and have started with Publix. Still tons to do!
I know I'm late, but Google Maps has a MyMaps feature that does all of what you're describing. I know a lot of people like tactile maps, but I just figured I'd throw that out there

Had the city deliver a second recycle bin, second trash bin. Just about filled both up this weekend, put more stuff out on Craigslist.

Actually found some old bills from 1991 in a box. DANG. I guess I'm a hoarder.

KabO, so sorry about the argument. Apparently touching anything he's packed will set him off, so might want to leave that alone. Good luck with the sale.

Restrain, any pictures of the Ranchero? OMG you're not taking it?
LMAO last week we threw away bank statements from 1988 to 2001. Yeah, I'm a pack rat

Restrain, Richard Rawlings didn't call you? That sounds like a Gas Monkey ride for sure!

Mailed off the snowshoes my dad gave me ten some years ago that sat in the attic. Going to MN, they are. Another dust collector gone, yay

Got almost all the furniture in the 16`truck so far. Probably only filled 2/3rds of it.

AHA! Found it!

I was actually looking in NC,SC and KY when it looked like our plan was going to mishap.

Safety Harbor is gorgeous.

Truck is packed except for one box, that we're calling the 'anything' box, for all those little items that didn't get packed where they were supposed to. Will close that one up in the morning, stick it on the truck, and go.

Wish us luck! Personally, I'm terrified of driving a 16' truck towing a car. Thankfully, Georgia and Florida are very flat. It's Tennessee that'll be the b***h.

It'll be several days before I can post again. Hopefully with pictures.
