(On the third anniversary of our drive across the US and our arrival in the PNW, I think back and talk about what it was like on each day of the trip. This is Part 1 of an 8 part series)

The night before we, with the help of a good friend and my wife’s mother, cleaned out our apartment and turned in the keys. We threw everything into the car, and headed to the hotel for the night. In the morning we said our goodbyes and drove West on the Penna Turnpike. Yes, all of the states have had two-letter abbreviations for a while, but some of the PA Turnpike signs still say Penna. And almost all of the signs are large keystones.
