The Road Ahead

I'm leaving in the morning, hopefully by 6AM, for a solo drive to Cape Cod, MA. If all goes as planned, it should take about 9 hours. I've got 4-5 discs left of my book Watchers by Dean Koontz to listen to. I took a few more audio books out of the library today. My iPhone is loaded with music. I'll hit as many Starbucks as I can on the way. And as many bathrooms. I hope the time will fly. I've driven to NY many times, but not gone farther than that. I don't like the NJ Turnpike, but no choice there. Will Exit 8 back it up as usual? I'll cross a few bridges, and I don't like bridges. I've heard the Tappan Zee is a really long one. Great. I'll be hugging the shoreline on I-95 after I get past NYC. Maybe I'll do some exploring on the way home, but I'll just drive, drive, drive on the way there.

I'm usually such a planner when I go away. Not this time. It's almost 9PM and I haven't packed a thing. Time to get busy. It's going to be very casual, so I'm not stressed over the packing. The trash is taken care of, same with mail and watering and timers for stuff.

That said, I'm gonna do what needs to be done. Be on the lookout for lots of pictures and such. I'll be bringing my laptop and mini-computer (iPhone). I hope to keep up with my blog and yours.

I wish it was 6AM now. Oh, right, gotta pack first. And sleep. Later!

Cheryl, having gone to school in Boston, Cape Cod was one of my greatest escapes from life ever!! Will you get the chance to take a boat over to Hyannis Port? Whatever you do, soak it up. This is the ULTIMATE summer vacation! Enjoy..... drive safe..... eat lobster and baked beans...... Enjoy

Love the title of your post:D I think there's a book titled that......not sure.....and honestly.....to lazy to go google it! :D I hope you have a great trip. The Tap Z is not a bad bridge. I'd be adventurous and take the bottom side of the GW. I've only been on the top level. Ever since 9/11 they make big trucks ride over the top of it. :( Either way you go though it's tolled. But I am sure you have EZpass. :D I miss the cash boxes. Anyhoo. I've rambled alittle to long. Have a great trip.

Cheryl, I hope that you have/will have had a wonderful time in Cape Cod. I think that the weather "down south" is supposed to be better than is scheduled for further north on I-95. You're a brave one, but you sound well prepared.
