Good Bye, Fremont, California!

My first night away from Fremont, and on my way to my new home. 

It was a busy day, with much improvising of my packing!  I thought I had things well organized, but as the day progressed, I found more things I should have sent out on the truck.  Tuesday morning, I had a moving company come in to transport most of my items.  It was not much more expensive than renting a truck, and it allowed for me to take my cross country touring trip.  I had all the large items packed, so I thought I could fit the rest in the car.  These would be items I would need if I beat the truck to Portland, or have to wait for a delivery day.  Well, I spent part of the day at a packing store to get "extra" items sent to my sister's house in Connecticut!  Finally, at the end of the day, after a delicious Indian dinner, I placed the final item from the apartment into the car (my laptop,) dropped my keys at the apartment office mailbox, and headed west to find a place to sleep.  I could have stayed in the apartment one more night, but it was time to get started, and I did not feel like sleeping on the floor another night!  

I thought about staying in Half Moon Bay for the night, but there were places I wanted to see on the peninsula before I began my drive south.  After crossing the Bay on Route 92, the San Mateo Bridge, I took the El Camino Real Blvd exit south, and found a little hotel in Belmont.  It was 2300, and I was tired after a long day of preparation, but all imaginable emotions appeared as I was finally going on my trip, my journey across the country, and wondering what was in store for me.  I was finally able to fall asleep, and slept well.
