My car will spend Christmas in Hawaii

We are using West Point Relocation to handle the transportation of our car from here in Northwest Ohio to Oahu. A car carrier came to pick up my car on December 2 (two days earlier than I expected!) and take it out to Long Beach, California, where it would be put on a ship bound for Honolulu. The whole process was supposed to take 3-4 weeks, and since I wanted my car there shortly after my arrival, it needed to leave the first week in December. I contacted West Point Relocation on Friday, and evidently my car has already begun its cruise to Oahu, so it will be in Honolulu in time for Christmas, with an expected arrival of Dec. 23, or Dec. 24. Mele Kalikimaka!

Here are a couple pictures from the day my car was picked up. we didn't stick around to see it drive away because it was darn cold - wind chill was about 2 below.

Oh - and those two kitties we rescued - they both have homes now! Two of Jim's fellow grad students are adopting them (one each). They are both boys, and seem to be pretty healthy so far.

Wow, there is so much to do! I bet you'll be glad to get to Hawaii.

That's cool that your car is well travelled and will be there for you when you arrive.

Hooray for the little kitties finding homes. They deserve the love and affection...and warmth!
