Drive Safe! Well, if you insist we could swing by and get some REAL Bagels! Some Real Pastrami?
Better you just take care of business and have an uneventful trip!

Maybe some real half-sours as well..(pickles for those who don't know)..

We'll see

Yah, I'm hoping I'll be back here before the next shoot...

I'll have some new toys to bring

I wonder how many times I'll get pulled over if I mount a 1919 in the bed of my truck, technical-style, on the way back here from NY...

Bring back a pic of your size 11 up Chuck Schumer's ass.

Wish I could....but unlike what he's trying to do to the rest of the country, his bodyguards are probably armed

If he really wanted to be non-hypocritical though, they'd be armed with muskets

Ok folks...I'm out. No access at home. I'll be on again probably Sunday sometime. If I'm not on by Tuesday, alert the President. He'll know what to do.

Made it!

Somehow, I did it in 17 hours, too. Including being stuck in the hell that is Chicago traffic Saturday mid-day...got REAL lucky before, and after, Chicago.

I'm the only guy I know of who drove from MN to NYC to do his laundry (Well, I have to move, too...but bringing all my laundry with me at least legitimized the drive..)

I'll see about scoring bagels and such next week

May your return trip be safe and swift!

driving through PA is such a long ass ride but at least it has hills.

rn22723, thanks! Hopefully I can squeeze a 1919 out of me pops before I take off...that should be a fun toy for everyone to enjoy at the shoots

Heh...some fun trivia for anyone contemplating a drive between Minneapolis and NYC...

Chicago traffic sucks on a mid-day Saturday. I spent more than an hour there when I shouldn't have spent more than 10 minutes at the rate I was driving...basically from 6 Flags Great America on to the other side, it was, as a russian here friend would say, "fuck". Just "fuck". As in "that is fuck".

Gary, IN smells like Newark, NJ. It's roads are as sucky, too.

Ohio is flat. I was tempted to tie a rope to the wheel, set the cruise control for 75, and take a nap.

I was hoping to make it to Cleveland before I cashed in...no such luck. After 13 hours behind the wheel (Chicago REALLY slowed me down), I crashed just outside there...

Super 8 Motels suck. They're not BAD in that you're guaranteed at least one police raid per night, but it was pretty bleak. On top of that, they dinged me $80! For a room I couldn't even order porn in! What the shit is that!

Heh...it was actually kind of funny. Being that I've lived/worked in the NYC metro area since I was 17 (over 10 years), my driving habits are more "combat" than "defensive" or even "offensive". Being in MN kinda mellowed me out a bit...until I literally, seriously, crossed the border into NJ. All the way out here I was going with the flow, not honking, in a calm state, just accepting traffic as a cow accepts flies...and then I crossed over that bridge on Rt. 80 into NJ...things get backed up...and the first thing I say: "Who's the fucktard who's holding up the parade?? Eh? Fuckin Jersey!"

I'm SOOO glad I'm gettin the hell out of here
