Our Peace Corps Journal travel blog

We woke up this morning on our air mattress in our empty house. Memories flooded our minds, like a slide show of our last four years in this house: Josh proposing, holidays when family came to visit, football games, BBQing with friends, swinging on the porch, lawn bowling, putting in the lawn, watching the snow fall, riding out thunder and wind storms, dancing in the kitchen. In many ways it was hard to say goodbye to our little house on the corner of Winslow, Arizona. As we began loading the few items that were not going into storage into our moving truck, friends stopped by for a final goodbyes, and to bring us coffee for the road. We took a final walk through our empty house and then we hit the road. Our trip took 11 hours from Winslow to Grover Beach, California.As we drove, we listened to the CD that Randy made us of the song we wrote for our going away party. We talked about how much we are going to miss our friends, and memories we have made. We attempted to practice Samoan using the practice CD we were given by the Peace Corps, but it was just too slow for the drive, and made us feel sleepy. We will be spending time with Josh's sister and brother-in-law until Monday, and then we will be making our way up the state to spend some time with Josh's mom, and then my family before we fly out for staging.
