Simple internet, no cell phones. You had to search for moving companies via the phone book and speculate which one was the best. Choosing a restaurant on moving night required a collection of amassed takeout menus or perhaps driving around to see what was accessible. And throughout your long-distance moving journey? No smartphone to check in, reserve places to stay, or perhaps enjoy podcasts with.
