New York November 2019

While we got on the road by 6:30 yesterday, it still took us until 2 to get to the hotel. Thats partly due to rain but also to some stops along the way. Apparently the earlier the start the more leisurely trip we’ll allow ourselves. Finally after several years of waiting, we had opportunity to…

New York City June 2nd, 2017

Wow, what a day today has been. Our most enjoyable day in New York in a long time. After breakfast at the hotel we hit the subway for Central Park and the Zoo. Its a tiny zoo and the variety of animals isn’t the greatest but the setting is unbeatable in my opinion. I’m sure…

A Brief Visit to NYC

Friday June 3, 2016 We hit the road this morning a little after 7am and made great time. The first stop was at the new Loves at Cumberland, MD which was very nice. Steph actually drove almost four and a half hours before we switched at the next Loves just before Allentown. I think it took…
