On the ground.

On Friday January 1st the Goeppner family hopped in our vehicles and followed friends David, Jodie and Shae James in our moving truck to make our way on our journey to northern New England. We first stopped in Stuart, Florida to have a last family meal at Cracker Barrel. At 7am we hit the road and drove straight through to Staunton, Va. (pronounced Stanton ;). It was there we met up with long time friends Kenny and Esther Warren (and kids). They drove well over an hour from Lynchburg just to see us!! It was great to reconnect with them even if it was only for a quick visit. Early the next morning we took off for the last leg of the journey. Man is Virginia the longest state EVER? It seemed to go on and on. We stopped a few times (including Shartlesville, Pa.)and eventually hit some snow in Vermont (falling heavily at times). By 10pm on January 2, 2010 we arrived in White River Junction, our new area, 10 minutes from our apartment. We settled in for the night at the Hampton Inn (not too shabby!).On Sunday January 3rd we awoke to a fresh snow fall and very ready to begin our move into our apartment. By 9am we were full on lugging our gear up three floors and down to long halls to #312. Our great friend Derek Tsakiris had a crew of peeps ready to unload the Budget truck. By 11:30am all of our stuff was in-house and friends and family had unloaded boxes and pictures were already on the walls! What’a 3 days!! More to come……
