At this point it’s safe to say that our moving adventure is nearly complete. We made it to our brand new home just in time to unpack and head out for a late, quiet dinner on New Year’s Eve.
Part 2: Kansas to Salt Lake City
We left Kansas on Tuesday morning with at grueling 15 hours and 3 states of driving ahead of us.
Driving through Nebraska is like driving through Western Kansas. Not an exciting view.
Gorgeous weather ahead! …or so we thought
And then came the 60 mph winds
Part 3: Salt Lake City to Reno
The third part of our move was quite the adventure, with the most memorable being our attempt to put chains on our tires in a sudden blizzard outside of Salt Lake City, and then being stuck in Reno, Nevada for a night.
We came across this odd sculpture while crossing the Bonneville Salt Flats. It looked like something out of a Dali painting.
Little did I know that 20 minutes later I would be attempting to help my husband put chains on our tires in a wild blizzard!
Part 4: Reno to San Jose
After waiting out the night in a town that feels like one giant casino, we got up early to conquer Donner’s Pass *insert Donner’s Pass joke about eating each other here* and the rest of the drive was a breeze.
Getting ready to head up to the infamous pass
On Saturday, my husband took me past his new office where I was able to catch my very last Aptera Around the World pictures.
If you ever come to visit, be prepared for the deliciousness of Pinkberry. It’s my new frozen treat addiction. Yum!
I’m safely back in Indiana for the remainder of January to finish out my job at Aptera, while my husband is enjoying the much warmer climate of our new home.
Speaking of jobs, I’m still looking for one in the San Francisco area. If you hear of any cool design boutiques who are hiring, let me know!
