where to go...

getting ready to hit the road... Columbus tonight if I'm good, Origins tomorrow, DC in the evening, see the capitol some on Friday, head up to Boston in the afternoon, arrival... Friday evening?

That's too fast. I need a new plan.

Indiana tonight, Columbus tomorrow... Origins for Thursday night/Friday morning... then to upstate New York to go through the Adirondacks, take the ferry across Lake Champlain... DC is not an option on Friday :-/

Where'd I put that post with all the different suggestions people had? Oh yeah, here.

No one will meet me at Cedar Point (bink?)...

Hm, if I leave now I hit Chicago right at rush hour, it would seem. Ugh.

Maybe I'll just get to Boston really early. Or find a bed/breakfast place up by Champlain... hmm...

My car is comically overstuffed at the moment. Sorry! :)

If it were my trip, I would definitely slow down through NY/VT and stop to catch my breath. There is so much beautiful peacefulness there that you just don't get elsewhere. Stop and go by a stream or pond and sit in the quiet and read a book or just listen to the birds. Or find a U-pick place or roadside stand and buy some fresh, still warm from the sun berries and have berries for lunch or for dinner. If you're really ambitious, stop at a market and pick up whipped cream and dessert shells as well and have strawberry shortcake with paperware from the salad bar. :) You don't need a plan except to stop and enjoy the world around you.

Of course, if you are just tired and want to come in early, you are more than welcome to do that too. :)

Have a safe, and fun, trip. We'll see you soon!

Great art at the end of that link, but yes, it is not the Bink that is me.

Crash Space
If you need a place to crash starting at god-awful in the morning, let me know. I can leave a spare key for you, or something like that. I even think that our guest room is free this weekend.

Re: Crash Space
By "really early" I meant Thursday or Friday, not 6am :)

Sounds like one of my gracious hosts (gmpe) approves of the possibility of me showing up early, even though I took the coward's way out and asked passively on lj instead of directly by email ;-)

No chance of you coming West before heading east? I would love to see you :) (no harm asking either :) )

a frayed knot :-/
I just don't have the time for it... sometime when I've saved up a lot of vacation and am driving to Las Vegas or someplace on the west coast, I'll make sure to stop by. :)

No chance of you visiting Boston, eh? With the little ones and all travel must be a real pain...
