Our long distance move last year followed these posts pretty closely, although this was my first time reading them. We had moved using a rented truck previously, and knew we didn’t want to spend that much again just to move non-essentials.
Although I can’t say it will be easy, I can recommend paring your belongings down before moving 1000 miles. It’s funny how quickly new things can accumulate in the year after the move, though… :)
Edit: To clarify, no we aren’t moving a long distance again. This was just some reflection on our move for others. Sorry for any confusion!
