Greetings from Norwich!

After what could be called "The Drive From Hell" up the Eastern Seaboard yesterday, Amanda and I finally got home last night a little before 11:00 after leaving Baltimore (which is approximately 325 miles away) a little after 2:00.  It was a frustrating drive - to say the least - as it seemed as if someone had put stop lights in the middle of the New Jersey Turnpike.  As I told Amanda, there are just too many cars and not enough roadway these days to make any sort of travel pleasurable and there's really no good way to get from here to there - not quickly anyway!

Anyhow, all grumbling aside, we made it home safe and sound with enough time for me to catch at least some sleep before my 16-hour shift in dispatch.  Oy. Luckily after I get through today I'm off for the next two days so with any luck I'll get some pictures edited (the one in this post was taken from our hotel with my iPhone) - I've only got about 900 or so to sort through!  Trust me, I've got plenty of blog fodder for future posts - LOTS of future posts!


  1. driving from west palm to miami is like that too. not fun at all.

    looking forward to the photos of my home town!

  2. There's no fun in driving when the roads are like that. Glad to hear you arrived home safe. :)

    yay--looking forward to seeing the pics! Glad you made it home safely.

  4. Hooray for 2 days off! I hate driving on major highways - especially in traffic. Glad you're home safe and looking forward to the photos!

  5. we left Baltimore in 1981, 95 and the njtp were impossiable then, it must be horriable

  6. Glad you are home safe, but I was hoping for smoother sailing getting home. Sorry is was so frustrating.

    Awaiting your adventures.

    Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

    Welcome home. rest first... pics can wait...

  8. Whew, glad you made it home in one piece. the NJ Turnpike totally sucks, I hate it with a passion.

  9. Home is always the bestest place to be! Welcome back.

    Big hugs, honey...

  10. Glad you are home safe. 16 hours on shift, very hard. double shifts no good. productivity down.

    be safe.


Thanks for visiting!
