Decisions, decisions

So I received a job offer in San Jose and they want me to start in 4 weeks. I’ve been so crazy trying to figure out if I should make this move. I have always enjoyed my visits to California but this would be a move all the way across the country.

It will be a 7 day drive from Rochester to Columbus to St Louis to Oklahoma City to Albuquerque to Flagstaff to Las Vegas to San Jose. The route is about 200 miles longer than going the northern route but I avoid two major mountain passes (Cheyanne and Tahoe) that might be having snow the second week of February. This route would also take me through some of the southern states which I’ve never seen and might consider adding a day just to get to see the Grand Canyon.

I have a cousin in Las Vegas and friends in San Fran so at least I know there will be familiar faces along my journey. I’m sure there will be more to write as I make my plans. I’m excited and unsettled at the same time but am jumping in with both feet.
