    PCSing this summer...flying or driving?

    Advertisements
    Hi all, my family and I were supposed to PCS around 1 June but I assume that date might get pushed back due to this crisis. Our new duty station is about 20 hours away by car. We were planning on flying there but I don't know what's safer. I wonder if moving companies will be available at all. I know we are not the only ones PCSing this summer but this uncertainty is quite stressful. Do you guys have any advice? Thanks.

    I'd definitely travel by car. Unless you'd be staying in hotels, then I guess there really wouldn't be a difference. We did 32 hours by car. We switched on and off driving so no hotel stays. It sucked, but we can't fly with our dog so we didn't have a choice really.

    I would drive. We drove ours that was about 40 hours of driving. Especially right now, I would drive and camp/sleep in the car if you have to stop to sleep.
