When you really sit back and visualize all of things that have to happen in order for you move a long distance, the list can be a little mind-boggling.  There is the move itself, there are new jobs to be started, new schools and utilities and mail.  Your entire life as you know it must be picked up and set back down in a far off place hopefully with as little disruption as possible.
