WHUFU Trip: Fall 2010 East Coast | 0

I lingered to  watch the niners game before I took off.  Hah!  What a waste of time that was.  I watched them suck badly, finished packing, and finally hit the road for real about 2pm.  I hadn’t eaten so I … Continued

My noisy party-animal neighbors from Michigan were gone by the time I got up.  Or rather I waited until they were gone to get up.   It wasn’t that they were bad people.  On the contrary, they were very good people, … Continued
