8 flights in 19 days.... 8 states and 5 capitals in 3....
Wow. What a trip. I guess I'll start with the highlights and save the expanded version for some lonely rainy/-30 day.
- I got engaged!
- I went to Las Vegas
- I saw Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Maryland, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania
- I met J's family
- I got new DKNY sunglasses at the MacArthur Center
But by far the most important thing that came out of this trip was that it was confirmed that Pennsylvania is the worst state to travel through whether it be by car or by plane. I'll admit that I've never traveled through by train but I'm sure that's horrible too.
People comment on the backwater hills of W.Va. Sure the landscape is a bit "Deliverance"esque but I didn't see very many inbred/deformed types. In fact, the only place of the whole trip that struck me as being a bit "different" was Flint, Michigan. I won't say anything more for fear of offending Michael Moore and other such stellar exports of that town so you'll just have to go there and see if you notice anything. You can get a really good philly cheese steak sandwich.... start booking your tickets!
Sadly I did not get the pleasure of riding HRT. (Hampton Roads Transit.) I'll have to save that for another trip. But if there's anyone out there that has and would like to share their experience....
