The past months have been crazy with work and travel. Got to visit some great places for shows, and do some fun things with friends but its just so busy and I don’t see it slowing down any time soon. Here is the rundown of life as of late…
August…Star Wars in Orlando
September…Vision Expo in Vegas
Pats home opener
Camping in NY
Plus…I bought myself a new car! It has been a crazy 2 months and more… Coming up I have a few amazing trips planned and hopefully I will put up a few more photos.
What I have randomly done in the past week or so…driving…my cousin got a job in Kansas City, so he was going to drive out there, I decided to come along for the ride because I was bored and I know a pretty cool chica out there.
First leg of the trip from NH to Kansas City, MO with an overnight stop in Cincinatti, OH (24 hours)
Monday- I drove to CT, spent the night purchasing the car we were going to use to drive there, cuz who doesnt wait til the night before you leave on a 22 hour roadtrip to buy their car.
(John and his brand new car)
Tuesday- we left for Kansas City. It was a lot of driving but also a lot of laughs.
(I-70 where I spent way to many miles)
Things we saw and happened included:
- giant tiger on the back of a tractor trailer
- 3 new dings in John’s brand new windshield…oops not so new anymore
- PERFECT women for peopleofwalmart.com she had a crown, tiara and giant earring- i wish i had a picture…would have been a gem
- lots of rain any time i was behind the wheel
- lots of stops at Subway-the proud sponsor of Kathleen driving time
- a cop pulling me over in Illinois for a speeding ticket- didn’t even let me try to talk my way out of it
- John telling me I could make a run for the Missouri border…1 hour drive
- lots of signs for giant sex stores…I guess nothing else to do in the Midwest
- lots of nothing…
Things we did not see included…any significant road trip landmark…FAIL
(looks exciting doesn’t it)
Wednesday- Arrived in KC around 4pm after time change and 11 hours in the car, obvious first stop Walmart Midwest style
I then spent 3 days in Kansas City with the lovely Katie and her roomies who gave me a wonderful couch to sleep on!
(Katie and I)
I also got to spend like 4 hours in Nebraska furniture mart completely decorating my cousins apartment, plus walmart and bed, bath and beyond, spending other peoples money is a skill I have!
Saturday- Airplane ride to Cleveland then to Bradley Airport in CT (4 hours)
Car ride up to a family party in Fairfield, CT (another hour or so)
Celebrated my uncles 50th bday with plenty of good food, wine and family fun! During the night, as I do, I randomly offered to drive a different cousin back to college the next day!
Sunday-Trip to the University of Delaware (3 hours)
Then I got to spend a night pretending to be a freshman in college again, by that I mean I hung with my cousin and her friends who seemed pretty cool, got some delicious dinner, checked out the U Del campus a bit and prob pissed of her roomie for randomly crashing without asking.
Monday- Ate at IHOP and a long drive back from Delaware to NH and finally arrive home (6 hours).
A total of around 35+ hours in less than a week hitting 13 different states and rode in 6 cars(including random trips around KC) and 2 planes during the time. I would say it was a successful trip for sure…except that stupid speeding ticket…
Heading on a new adventure tomorrow! Okay not really that big of an adventure but I am helping my cousin move to Kansas City, MO on Monday. Which means I am driving with him in a small car for 21+ hours. I have never driven in that direction (We leave from Connecticut) so hopefully I see some cool things besides corn fields and straight roads, although New England doesn’t exactly have straight roads so maybe that is cool! PLUS huge bonus is I get to see Miss Katie Glick! I love reunions with New Zealand friends!
Hopefully I will be updating this along the way, I’m sure atleast some pics from the highway haha. I got my new Nikon all charged up!
Let me know if there is something exciting along the way I should see people! Off on the adventure I go! and now to pack…
