The biggest size was available in Sioux Falls, but a 26 ft truck for us is a little over-kill plus I don't want to pay for all that gas! The next smallest truck was a 14 ft truck and the closest one to us was over 45 minutes away! So before I canceled with U-haul, I wanted to make sure there was a truck somewhere that I could get, without driving a gazillon miles! I called Penske out of Sioux Falls and to make a long story short, was able to get a truck!
But here's the cool thing....the truck from U-haul would have cost $156 and with Penske it was $144 because I asked for the online discount. So they gave me 20% off the original price. Then after I was off the phone with the Penske rep, I called the actual office in SF to make sure my truck would be there since U-haul kinda freaked me out. The guy assured me it would be there and after telling him my
Plus, since U-haul stinks, they are supposidly mailing me $50 because I canceled with them because they didn't have my truck. That brings the total truck rental down to $49! Pretty sweet, huh??
So yesterday morning was spent on the phone with those places instead of packing...ugh. BUT, I still have almost everything packed so I should be set to go tomorrow!
And how was I able to get so much stuff done yesterday even though half my day was spent dealing with stinky U-haul?? Because Jen was kind enough to watch my boys for most of the day!! I brought them over shortly after 9am and she brought them back at 6:15! WOW! That was nice! Thank you Jen!!
I'm going to be canceling my internet tomorrow and I'm not sure how fast they will be with hooking it up in Seward so it might be a few days until I post again. I hear they have a new library in Seward with all the latest stuff so if I can, maybe I'll sneek over there sometime and use their wireless internet.
For now, I'll say "Good-bye Luverne---Good-bye Wendlands (Jen)---Good-bye Karen (our egg & meat lady)---Good-bye Crazy Acres (milk), Good-bye Clyde (great signs & cheap oil changes!)you will all be greatly missed!!!"
Now on to Nebraska!!!.......
