alone again, for a while
We are moving our daughter from one city in Arkansas to another this weekend. (Fayetteville to Little Rock) We have lined up volunteer helpers (lifters) at each end. I will be driving the truck but will stand around watching the young guys do the heavy work loading, then unloading.
Wife is at daughters townhouse right now helping pack boxes. I'm a temporary bachelor again. These are always 'clean out the refrigerator' events so I don't starve.
Yesterday, I reserved a 17' U Haul truck for the job. I wasn't, and still am not looking forward to driving it in Little Rock traffic. The narrow, winding streets and roads are a death defying thrill at best with a car. But, a clunky U Haul truck is sumptin' else.
To make matters more exciting, this a.m. I got a call from U Haul. They don't have a 17 footer available. But, they will upgrade me, at no extra cost, to a 26 footer. More
Now, the thrill of driving a big, bigger, truck in Little Rock increases exponentially.
I have driven all kinds of trucks in my lifetime but had little experience with city situations. And, it has been over 20 years since I drove a large straight. In that time I have pulled stock trailers, campers and such but no larger trucks.
I'll just take it easy and try to ignore those folks honking behind me because I'm not driving fast enough to please them.
