I just looked at Penske rentals because they have unlimited mileage and are cheaper than UHaul and fooled around with the items a bit. The cost for picking up the truck on N. Cave Creek (AZ) and driving it to Mesa (AZ) is 409 + gas. The cost for picking the truck up in Fairfield (CA) and driving it to Mesa is 2600 + gas!!!! Holy lordy... So looks like we'll be pimping it Penske style back to California to pick up the stuff and head home. But we already knew that.
I've also been offered a job. Assistant Manager at Rubio's (the fish taco place)... not exactly world moving, but they are going to pay a good wage and it will be close to home. The hours will also be a problem since Tara wants me working weekdays and the restaurant industry just doesn't work that way. Not sure if I'll take it. But I have until Tuesday or Thursday to decide.
That's enough for now. Gotta sleep.
