did you already book your airline tix from NYC? can you change them from SD? at least you have a much faster flight.
i think Morgan convered the bases...the only other thing i would add is to inventory your boxes when you pack. you may need something and not have time to unpack every single thing.
what i recommend is (i know it sounds tedious) to make a list of everything that is going into a box (on excel if you can) and number the boxes and match those to the lists
Great tip. I labeled my boxes really good when I moved from Texas to NC. I also packed a box that was labeled "open first." It had shampoo, soap, showercutain rings & liner, a pot, plate, bowl, scissors, towel...just all the stuff you might want right away.
We had driven 24 hours & unpacked a bunch of stuff in the heat. It was nice being able to shower ASAP.
You can also ship your car. I think that can be expensive though. Are you moving a bird? Another option is to leave your bird with someone & your car and then get it later. SD is a place you can do without a car at first right? I've seen friends have to move off fast, so they left their cats, dogs, cars, etc. with someone else for a few weeks.
