I present an incomplete list of the things I will miss, in no particular order:
1. The towpath and D&R canal
2. Princeton University's campus
3. Nassau St.
6. Lake Carnegie
7. The Bent Spoon
8. Running on quiet country roads past huge colonial-style homes
9. Small World
Let's not dwell on the negative, but there are a few things that I will not miss:

My send-off week has been fabulous and quintessentially Princeton. What better going away party than Reunions?! (Okay, that's a bit backwards, but it go with it.) What more qualified people to fly over and help the moving process than my parents?! There is too much to describe, dear Readers, from my hotel room bed, with a six-day cross-country move ahead of me, but here, for you, are pictures.

After a few minutes of investigation, he decided the situation was acceptable.
He's a natural:
Here's hoping he's a natural road-tripper. Stay tuned for our next series: Eleven States, Six Days, Three Adults, One Cat, and a Corolla.
