We made it! We totally underestimated time and how much stuff we have. We ended up not leaving until Thursday night, we had to run up to uhaul and rent a 6x12 trailer because the 26' truck was full . I drove with the trailer which I had never done before. We stayed on the major hwys - 95 to 295 to 10 to 75.

It wasn't too bad until we came upon a very vicious downpour a few miles pass Tampa. I had never been so scared before. You could only see about 15' ft in front of you. It only lasted about 5-10 minutes but it felt like an hour.

We got in a day late but that's ok because we are here!!

Great! Welcome home! and get used to those vicious downpours, they can be an almost daily occurance around these parts from June thru September, but they rarely last very long.
Let the gang here know if we can help with anything in the future......
