My internship with GM starts on Monday and so I'm in the process currently of moving to Michigan. Thanks to the proximity of family, friends and people willing to lend me their car for six months (I suppose those are friends also!), the move will comprise having my stuff temporarily two places in Massachusetts, one place in Pennsylvania, one place in Indiana and then, finally, Michigan. Luckily, GM has provided housing and so I do not have to take any furniture. Between the mostly furnished place and buying a bed-in-a-bag when I get there, this has allowed me to move all of my stuff in...a VW Golf GTI. Admittedly a stuffed GTI, but a GTI none the less.

While the Mass Pike has been a common sight for me, and I've seen green mountains in Vermont, the rolling green hills and mountains of PA are less familiar and so I had many times when I realized I should have taken photos, but the moments were gone before I could take my camera out. Here is one though.

Once we picked up the car, it was time for another around five hour drive back in the direction we had come but more north - into Michigan. One thing that was easy about basically all of this driving was once you got on a highway the GPS usually said something like, take this for X hundred miles, so other than dealing with occasional weather, the driving wasn't too challenging.
The trick was that I needed to get to the leasing office to pick up my apartment key by Saturday at 5PM. Because we had woken up so early, I made it there by around 3:30. Hooray!
