Now since these posts are more abt the travel ill fastforward to Sunday! Our plan for Sunday was to hit up Cooperstown once more and then get back on the road to Bing by 3pm…That morning I got a call from Nat saying her trip back to school had ended a bit early and if possible shed love to see me that night…I told her to go fuck herself
Ok ok ok while that mayve been what I shouldve said I instead avoided excuses and said Absolutely! (You’ll soon learn that as badass as I’d love to be it just doesn’t ever really happen) I mean what the hell, I would surely be able to squeeze a trip to south jersey into my trip, why the heck not? So we went from Oneonta to Cooperstown (amazing town and a must for baseball fans) and at 3pm went from Cooperstown back to Bing and I said so long to Dafe!
Dafe was not out of my car more then 5 mins before that dreaded check engine light came on…now this sucked! Ya see I had work the next day (rule of thumb is you don’t call out the day after you’re out on vacation or it looks like you enjoyed that vacation a little too much) so logic would say get your ass back home or even back to Dafe’s and figure out my next move, right? Not how I operate, off to south jersey I went praying my car would be able to power through like it had done so many times before!
I did make it south Jersey to hang out with Natalie and I never told her abt the check engine light as she had been on me to upgrade the vehicle ASAP (easier said then done, however, esp bc these weekend getaways while great often have a decent pricetag attached in the end). I made it back to south jersey at abt 830 so I again banged out a more respectable 5 and a half hrs on the road…
Finally I had one more obstacle which would be getting from south jersey to queens the next morning. So I got up at five AM said goodbye to Nat and her mom (awk I know let it go) and while hoping against hope I made it home and to work on time in a swift 2 hours! As a side my car did die imediately after work and needed repairs the next day but the fact was it got me all over the place and where I needed to be.
So in the end in the span of three days I went from Queens-Bing-Oneonta-Cooperstown-Back to Bing- to South Jersey- and then finally back to Bayside….all in the name of an unforgettable weekend getaway!
