I'm a grad student starting at UF Gainesville this August, and just want to put it out there that I'll be renting a U-Haul or Penske truck to move from Sacramento CA. I don't have enough belongings to fill a truck, but if you are interested we can perhaps team up. My mom is willing to drive with me, so you wouldn't have to. But if we happen to be compatible and you are qualified to do half the driving we can do that. I figured one can sleep in the back (on a real bed!) while the other one drives (we can communicate via cell phones.) To give an idea of how it breaks down, if we did 7-hour shifts, each of us would have 3 of them, assuming 65 mph driving speed. If 7 hours turns out to be too much, we can make it 4 or 5. As far as your starting point, it could be anywhere on my route, which is basically Sacramento to LA and then heading east on I-10 all the way to Florida. I need to be in Gainesville on August 10, so need to plan to arrive as close to that as possible. Your drop-off point can be pretty much anywhere along I-10. I'm willing to go about an hour beyond Gainesville, but then I have to double back to return the rental truck in Gainesville.
