We’ve caught it and there is no cure. We will go through terrible withdrawals when it is over. “It” is Olympic fever! Here at U-Pack our water cooler talk is all about the Olympics. We know quite a bit about different places in the US, mostly because we have moved some of our 500,000 customers just about everywhere at some point…so we naturally wanted to know where these talented athletes train.

Here at U-Pack, we are all about hometowns. We know that after a move, life starts in your new hometown. So we were curious about the hometowns of the 2012 United States Olympic Athletes.

And in U-Pack fashion, we have thrown in some moving info and fun facts to the mix! Enjoy!
