Day 7 and 8 // 6.11.17

Woah. The past couple days have been crazy. I’ve been without wifi so i’ve been unable to post! Here’s the recap.

Friday, we went to Joshua Tree National Park. OMG. This place. It is unreal. These funky little trees look like a cross between a palm tree and a cactus. There were also these huge rocks. I mean, look at that!

All the colors here were so vibrant. Check out the color of this sky. No filter needed.

This would be a great place to camp and spend more time. I’d really like to check out some of the more challenging hikes. We will definitely be back.

After spending the day at Joshua Tree, we went back to our little apartment to get ready for dinner. We went to the Joshua Tree Saloon. The food was decent and they had pool tables and live music. The perfect ending to our day.

Saturday, we woke up relatively early to get packed up. Today is MOVE IN DAY!!! We will no longer be homeless! That is, IF the POD actually arrives. I mean, two days ago, they didn’t even know where it was. Trying to remain positive. No need to manifest shit going wrong.

I don’t think Mr. P wanted to leave. He had settled into our little apartment and even had some good window views!

I thought the drive would only be two hours. It was three. And Mr. P had had enough of the car. He threw a temper tantrum just like a toddler. This is him digging and shoving his head aggressively into my overnight bag. So much for folded clothes.

He finally came around.

We got to the apartment with enough time to unload the car and get Pushkin set up. And then, guess what? THE POD ARRIVES!

Hooray! We have stuff!!

We hired a couple guys to help us unload. However, they were a little late. They were supposed to be there between 4-5pm. They got there at 8:45. Oh well. We got the shit unloaded and was in bed (finally) at midnight.

Next steps: trying to figure out how to squeeze all of our crap into 700 sq ft….

  1. I have a high school friend in HB or very near I think… pam.n.lopez@facebook.com. If you want I could let her know you are there, she is a bike rider, hiker, collector of antique clothes etc a real cool woman. Mom told me Josh has a brother there so I was able to better understand the appeal of the cross country relocate. I am a mover so I could understand the move from my perspective but I meet so few folks that do not have a problem packing up and heading out. Kinda makes my feet itch…:) post pics and stuff of the settling into the neighborhood. You have us all hooked on our voyerism of your move! HA!!
