Friday – Maryland

Well, look where we ended up tonight, Frederick, Maryland. After much discussion, we decided this afternoon to bail and head east early. Probably a wise move considering the forecasts.  Its been a nice evening plus it saved me a lot of worry about a last minute road trip. Crossing the mountains of eastern West Virginia…

Monday morning-New York

Sunday was a very long day. Don’t get me wrong, it was a vacation day and not bad at all by normal standards. On the road by 9, I envisioned a mid afternoon arrival in New York. Man was I ever wrong! Sure, we intentionally took our time, but the trip ended up at right…

The Aftermath and the Road East

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…

Slayer Day 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 in the works for a long…

I’m very thankful it worked out that way as we were able to take our time rather than just…

Carnival Spirit and West Coast 2001

The trip essentially began in Columbus, Ohio Thursday 5/17. We endured monsoon like rain coming through Parkersburg but Columbus was dry. It was closing in on 10pm by the time we settled at the Cross Country Inn. This place may claim to be the “cleanest place you’ve ever stayed” but, I don’t recommend it. Jill…

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…
