Hurry up ... wait wait wait

What should have taken an hour, took three.  This is to be expected with anything involving the word "military".  I'll be keeping that in mind for the next few months.

So today we dropped our truck off at the Charleston Vehicle Processing Center.  From there it will be put on a boat to meet us in Germany somewhere around March 24.  Making the drive up to Charleston in two separate vehicles, Chris with Natalie in a rental and I in our truck, was pretty easy.  Getting to the port and realizing I had too much gas in the truck for shipment was a downer.  The maximum alotment is a quarter tank and I was just above it.  Drove around and found a mechanic that would siphen gas then it was back to the port.  Lots of paperwork and an hour later we are back on our way to Savannah.  Another 2 1/2 hour drive (we had to take turns, it was that boring) and we were back home.

The funniest part of the day was watching Natalie blow kisses to the truck and waving goodbye.  And so it begins ...
