Well flying sucks, but the plus side is I get two free checked bags from Southwest. So I decided to stuff two boxes full of my crap and check those. I'm pretty happy about this, I'll be able to have nice warm clothes, blankets, pillows, my sleeping bag, my linens, toiletries, kitchen supplies, and a few other knick knacks to spruce up my van until I get back to San Diego.
Also, my mother is flying to meet me in Chicago IL on November 1st. I am very excited she is able to join me for the 10 day trip back to San Diego, we are going to have a blast, mom and I. I was able to pack a few things into my boxes for mom, dishes, silverware, blankets, towels etc.
I am very excited.
