There is an entire country between here and there. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH. How will I ever fall in love with new places if I keep going back to old places I love...AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH.
The shortest route is weird-it goes up through Buffalo and then back down to Mass.-probably has something to do with all them thar mountains. The other benefit (to me) is that if I go that way I won't be tempted to divert to the other places. I'm just not sure Canada and Niagara falls could be as wonderful as the Smithsonian.
You guys help keep me strong please. Everyone of those other towns has frequent plane fare sales and I could go for a long weekend quite easily.....but it's very hard to be near them and not partake. I really want to spend the week I'm in Provincetown IN Provincetown, as near the shore as possible, snarfing as much seafood as I can hold.
But, I have that other 7 days....which could be divided into 4 hard driving days and 3 piddling days, or 7 semi-diligent days with one long side trip...........and about a thousand different routes.
I've got to have some plan-knowing it will be a loose plan because I'm so easily sidetracked when on the road. And I'm giddy with the whole 2 week thing. I've traveled a lot, but I don't think I've ever been away and not touched base for two whole weeks. And, my hospital experience this year proved the dogs could board for a lengthy time and not be forever scarred. Oh, this is dangerous knowledge.
