My wife, daughter, and I are driving this weekend to do some college shopping. We made our first stop at St Michael's College and our second at Ithaca College. Fortunately, the Comfort Inn here in Ithaca has wireless access so I can try and catch up on what has been happening.
On the sporting front, the New England Revolution lost last night and Lance Armstrong won the 20th stage today.
We drove 250 miles on our first leg to St Michael's. 177 miles to our overnight stop in Rensselaer, NY then another 180 to Ithaca today.
A few detours for road construction provided some momentary panic as we had to wait to see where the detour would drop us, and figure out how we could continue with our AAA TripTik directions.
Fortunately, all went well.
One really good road sign I wish I had a camera for: coming south on Rt 7 out of Shelburne, VT. "Nature's Way" was the road's name. Above it, in yellow: Dead End. How true!
One detour (also off Rt 7 and then back to it again) treated us to a spectacular full band rainbow. Oh, where was the camera for this one? We had to rely on mental snapshots to record the beauty of it all.
Closed out the day with dinner at the Main Moon, an "all you can eat" Chinese buffet that did provide a great variety of good food.
Need to get some rest tonight, we have about a 340 mile drive to return home tomorrow.
Catch you later!
