California is weird.

As we entered the state on I-40, all cars had to stop for inspection. We were asked if we had any fresh fruit or vegetables, and if we had any pets other than the cats. Nothing very intrusive, but it was just weird.

On top of that, I-40 has a speed limit of 70, unless you're a car with a trailer, in which case the limit is 55. That really sucked; until then, I was thinking we might make it to Studio City tonight. But we did get to Barstow, which was farther than we had hoped to get. (75 MPH limit through Arizona and a lot of downhill driving made it possible!)

But tomorrow morning we'll get a late start. Because we only have a little ways to go, and we'll need to let the traffic settle down. We'll probably head out around 9:30 (after calling the apartment complex to let them know we'll be there on Thursday).

So... hmmm... now I gotta figure out who can come and help unload and/or unpack, and when. And the magnitude of everything is finally settling in...
