The Penske frequent renter...
I have loaded the Penske truck, cleaned the house and now we’ll hit the road. Since we moved to Italy once before and never really planted roots since our return to the US in May 2009 this move back is less complicated. I didn’t say easy, just less complicated. We know the process, what to expect and more of what we don’t need to take with us. Always enlightening the things you think you can’t do without…but pack and never use.
Our friend Al will drive up with me to Ohio where we will be depositing some furniture, clothes, books and of course my Gaggia. This will give me the chance to see some of my family before I depart for Roma on Saturday from Columbus. Since our furniture has taken up residence at my sister-in-laws house for the past few years she will be happy to have the use of Valerie’s Ekornes chair again. One of the most comfortable arm chairs you can buy.
By this time next week I will be fighting jetlag and once again loading a vehicle to move. We still have stuff stored at our friend’s place in Roma and one more move will transport all of that to our house in Basilicata.
