Carnival Horizon Day by Day

Slayer Day 2018 June 9, 2018 June 9th is finally here and though I was encouraged to sleep in for what will no doubt be a late night, I was still up at 5:30. We’ll head to Pittsburgh in a couple hours for lunch and some Guitar Center time for Colton. This adventure has been…

Embarkation Day

I’m sure Steph is thankful today is here. I am as well but I’d also be content to maintain my current city dweller routine for another week. It always seems to take a little time to settle in to cruise ship life. Especially when you’re coming off three days exhausting days in New York. Yesterday…

Uptown and ABC

I’d guess I finished up yesterday with 13 to 14 miles walked. Absolutely fantastic. After the downtown walk described earlier, Colton and I set out for Grand Central Terminal and the obligatory Guitar Center time. The day was closed out exploring the 34th St. area. We’ve passed through there several times over the years but…

All I can say is, wow. That was an incredible experience. It was great to see my old friend Jason and even greater to once again be pounded by the power of a Slayer show, only this time with Colton. We splurged on great seats and certainly didn’t regret it. Close enough that the guy…

An Afternoon Downtown

So the first part of this is going to sound terribly similar to our New York visit this past June. We were up early and on the road from WV at 6:40. We stopped a couple of times on the way at a Loves Travel Plaza in Cumberland, MD and again at the one in…

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…
