In just under two weeks, I'll be abandoning my post as Jalopnik's Capitol Bureau Chief in D.C. to become Jalopnik's Chief Circuit of the Americas Press Car Crasher in Austin, Texas. And that will involve another road trip halfway across the country.
The last time I did this drive, my then-fiancee/now-wife and I rented a huge-ass moving truck with a 75 mph governor on it. That sucked. I'm never doing that again. This time we're hiring movers to ship our stuff and driving our own car to Texas separately.
