The first time we did it, it was before kids so there wasn't much risk. The second time it was more stressful because we had a 3 year old and a 4 month old when we moved. We really didn't expect the house to sell so quickly, but we did well with the move. He flew out to interview for jobs, and I house hunted long distance because I didn't have time to fly out and look at places. I got a townhouse without even seeing pictures of it and signed papers when we got there. The hardest part was trying to secure a moving truck on such short notice. I flew out with the kids, my husband drove 28 hours straight through to Nevada. It was a weirdly cool move because of how well we did it on the fly.
