Tom is moving to Utah

by Tom Johnson on Aug 7, 2007 •
categories: technical-writing

I'm relocating to Utah in late August to accept a new job. I'll be working for EMC, which does contracts with the army base in Dugway, Utah. Dugway is about 80 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, remotely located in the Salt Lake Desert (see image below).

English Village in Dugway, UT

We'll be driving over from Florida, which is about a 2,400 mile drive. We'll actually live in Tooele rather than Dugway. Tooele ("Tuwilla") is a small town (population = 30,000) about 45 min. north of Dugway.

If you have any advice for long distance drives or moving, let me know. We're really excited about this move. My wife's family is from Utah, I went to Brigham Young University for my undergraduate degree, and I love the Utah landscape and people. Additionally, the responsibilities of this tech writing job look like a perfect fit for me.
