One-Way Rental of U-Haul 26-Foot Truck To and From Milwaukee

March 29, 2009 | Permalink


One more item to consider; U-Haul knows that "one-way" trucks to Milwaukee will not come back empty-bedded, while it figures that the likelyhood that a truck leaving Milwaukee will most likely have to be driven back by somebody paid by U-Haul to make the trip.

Yes, please stop moving to Dallas. Traffic's bad enough as it is.

This cartoon = win.

My wife and I moved from Milwaukee to San Antonio back in November, at the height of the gas prices. One way, including all gas, ran just shy of $2000-- and that was only because gas prices went down as we drove further south. The job market, the political market, the tax market... They say everything's bigger in Texas, but unemployment is 2% less, there's no state tax, and the budget here is consistently in the black even without that revenue.

Yeah. I can believe those numbers above. Kudos, Tom.

In addition to everything mentioned by "Trailsong," (Texas: no income tax, unemployment < 2%) one can also add that heating costs in San Antonio in the winter nearly drop to zero and one can minimize air conditioner costs in the summer by living in the right kind of house. Also, it appears that the costs of groceries in San Antonio are about half the cost found in Los Angeles. Compared to much of the rest of the country, it is very inexpensive to live in San Antonio. The population is over a million but it still has a nice small town feel to it.

Great site, 4-Block World.

Back in the cheap sunglasses house at last,

there began a dreamlike time of grave arrivals, tears and subdued voices and urgent footsteps

across the hallway, and her own vile excitement that kept her drowsiness at bay. Of course,

Briony was old enough to know that the moment was entirely Lola’s, but she was soon led away

by sympathetic womanly discount five fingers

hands to her bedroom to await the doctor and his examination. Briony watched from the foot of

the stairs as Lola ascended, sobbing loudly and flanked by Emily and

href="http://www.cheaphandbagsroom.com">cheap handbags Betty, and followed by Polly who

carried a basin and towels. Her cousin’s removal left Briony center stage—there was no sign

yet of Robbie—and the way she was listened to, deferred to and gently prompted seemed

href="http://www.discountfivefingers.com">vibram five fingers kso at one with her new


It must have been about this time that a Humber stopped outside the house and two police

inspectors and two constables wholesale jerseys

were shown in. Briony was their only source, and she made herself speak calmly. Her vital role

fueled her certainty. This was in the unstructured time before formal interviews, when she was

standing football jerseys facing the officers in the

hallway, with Leon on one side of her and her mother on the other. But how had her mother

materialized so quickly from Lola’s bedside? The senior inspector had a

href="http://www.nfljerseysgreat.com">wholesale nfl jerseys heavy face, rich in seams, as

though carved from folded granite. Briony was fearful of him as she told her story to this

watchful unmoving mask; as she did so she felt a weight lifting from her and a warm submissive

feeling spread from her stomach to her limbs. It was like love, a sudden love

href="http://www.jerseyssun.com">hockey jerseys for this watchful man who stood

unquestioningly for the cause of goodness, who came out at all hours to do battle in its name,

and who was backed by all the human powers and wisdom that existed. Under his neutral gaze her

throat constricted replica handbags and her

voice began to buckle. She wanted the inspector to embrace her and comfort her and forgive

her, however guiltless she was. But he would only look at her and listen. It was him. I saw

him. Her tears were further proof of the truth she felt and spoke, and when her mother’s hand

caressed her nape, she replica oakley

sunglasses broke down completely and was led toward the drawing room.
