Have a safe cross country move, Bill. We did the same thing from Utah in 93. It is great to travel across this wonderful country when you are not on a real tight schedule. The wife wanted to fly, but she had to drive her car. She took the middle of our two truck with trailer convoy. We each had a CB to keep rafted up and she really had fun. She had my bud and I and all the truckers in earshot in stitches with her new found toy. Fortunately, we had storage spaces lined up for all the toys and household goods when we arrived so every thing was put away quickly before starting on the house.
By the way, building the garage first really makes sence and that is what we are going to do when we build the next one!! Looks like I may have the old Bronco Half Cab done by the time you get your Hemi'let finished.
