While I’m updating on a greyhound bus en route to Binghamton for the weekend, I figured I would take a trip down memory lane and remember a trip I took to Binghamton last September.
Ya see I love to get out on the road and go away, whether it be for a day, a weekend or a week I just love to get away from New York City any chance I get. Being someone who doesn’t really need more then five hours of sleep to function comfortably throughout the day, there is no too early or too far…I love trips that sound insane and that require a lot of driving (I mean shit theres a reason I have 165,000 miles on my car.) There is just so much out there to see and some of my best memories have come hanging with friends or family on the road. Since I’m now 25 I feel like there is only so many more chances I’m gonna get to getaway for the day or the weekend so when I can I do.
Most weekends in 2011 I spent with Natalie, there was rarely a weekend that we didn’t have something planned out or going on. However, this particular weekend we did have seperate plans. Ya see, Nat had plans to do her alumni weekend and do to a variety of reasons I was not welcome on this trip.
Therefore, I made plans to head to my friends Mario and Jenna’s place for the weekend in Oneonta to eventually visit the baseball hall of fame in Cooperstown. I was gonna also pick up Dafe in Binghamton and then cut back to Oneonta on that Friday so the four of us could have a nice little weekend.
Witty Boxie Sidebar: Dafe had let me know that it really would make the most sense for me to pick him up from Binghamton before going to Oneonta since Binghamton was practically on the way to Oneonta…in all actuality this really just made the most sense for Dafe as, after my other two trips to Oneonta I realized Binghamton is about an hr out of the way between Queens and Oneonta…many skills I have, however, a sense of direction is not one of them
Thus, when Friday morning came I embarked on quite a journey at 1pm and do to immense traffic and roadwork I made it to Binghamton at 830pm…you read that correctly I was on the road for a staggering 7.5 hrs! (Admittedly it was my fault, kinda sorta, I was supposed to leave at 10 but just couldn’t get going) Once I got to Bing and grabbed a bite with Dafe we were back on the road and on the way to Oneonta…we finally arrived a little before 12!
About 11 hrs on the road which sounds insane but heck if it didn’t happen I wouldn’t be here blogging about the trip right now would I…
