One thousand miles is roughly the distance from Somerville, MA to Louisville, KY.
After spending much of the weekend packing up the two bedroom apartment, Monday was devoted to selling furnishings (primarily the beds and futon) and loading the van. About 5:30 that evening, my family headed south and west in two vehicles. I was driving the rented Dodge Grand Caravan.
About noon today, we arrived in Louisville, exhausted. The trip wasn't too bad, save for the nightmare just south of Pittsburgh.
Note to I-70 drivers: avoid the area from the Pennsylvania Turnpike to the I-70 interchange. Find another route!
