Taking a break from class action cramming (picking up the exam at 5 or so.)
A number of people have asked where I will be, when. I really don't know. My ability to anwser that correctly depends on my ability to solve the puzzle below. Remember those brain teaser questions where you have a lion, a lamb, a prize cabbage, and one boat to get them across the river, but can only take one at a time? This is sorta like that.
So - here's the brain teaser.
The Scoplaw lives in DC, where he'll be studying for the FL bar.
His DC lease runs till August.
He has to get himself, his car, one feisty cat, and a *small* truckload of stuff down to Miami FL in time to start work full time. (As far as he knows a trailer hitch on his 2002 Ford Taurus is not an option. Boo! But he can probably get a UHaul car-tower for not too much extra.)
That work begins on Monday July 30th, 2007.
He also needs to get an apartment in Miami before then, but he would prefer not to overlap MI and DC rent for more than he absolutely has to (i.e., ideally he'd get a place with a prorated move in date pretty close to July 30th.)
He also needs to fly to Tallahassee for the Bar exam. The exam is July 24-5. He can fly (theoretically) from either MI or DC, but don't want to take too much pre-bar time doing so.
And he's taking Bar/Bri classes that will pretty much suck up his weekdays and most weekends for the month of June and July. So efficiency is a must.
So, how does the Scoplaw do all this in minimal trips without starving his cat or breaking the bank?
Grand prize is - well, depends on how creative your solution is.
Oh - last point. The Scoplaw would be happy to subsidize someone helping him move down to Miami by offering - free crash at the new place for as long as you'd like, use of the car to explore Miami (as feasible, given work) plus a plane ticket back to wherever it is you came from. There's really not a ton of stuff - it's mostly the long drive that's the pain.
