A Foggier New York

Wow, this is weird. I got up at 4:30 this morning in anticipation of a 2008 like ride under the bridge and back up the river. But no, I get a lot of fog with a blaring fog horn. Speaking of that, I now recall a downside to the Deck 9 forward cabin location planned…

Boarding Carnival Sunrise

And I thought Sunday was a lot to tell about. I guess it was, but it was cool stuff. Yesterday was more of a day of trivial nonsense that appears more significant than it really is because it comes on whats been labeled an important day. No first morning sunrise for me today by the…

A New York Sunday

What a day. Steps Sunday topped out over 29k. Many miles added to feet already in bad shape. Any more than 3 nights here and I might hurt myself. Kicking myself now for not taking advantage of the quiet midtown yesterday morning by renting a bike. Way more activity at 5:30am Monday. The park closed…

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…
