This marks the 10th anniversary of my leaving DC. 10 years ago I moved from the DC area to Nashville, TN to start grad school. Except I didn't make the trek alone. Because the total amount of my personal belongings out-sized the carrying space of the car, which was another in a series of outdated Oldsmobiles that I drove around in my youth, getting all my stuff down to Nashville required two drivers.
Weed volunteered to take off work, and drive down with me, caravan-style, to Nashville. I led the way in a rented truck and Weed followed behind in the clunker. It's not a short drive to Nashville, about 10 hours. We left early in the morning from Fairfax, VA and got to downtown Nashville by sundown.
I wanted to thank Weed, 10 years later, and let him know that his act of generosity is not forgotten. Like most guys, I don't do thank you cards, we just post on the net.
