Planning a Road Trip

I'm just not one of those fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants people.  I'm not Anthony Bourdain.  I like to have reservations.  At least for a few important things, like flights, rental cars, and hotels.

However, when it's someone else's college tour road trip, I had to wait until said person made his plans.  Waiting, waiting.  Weeks and weeks.  And then my own dalliance and delay.

Now I can say, plans MADE!

Ernest, with me in tow because he is too young to rent a car himself, will be visiting Drexel (Philadelphia), Carnegie-Mellon (Pittsburgh), Cornell (Ithaca), Rensselaer (Troy), MIT/Boston U/Northeastern (Boston).    And two days on my own in NY, seeing Once (I'm all fluttery over Arthur Darvill, Rory from Doctor Who!) and Kinky Boots.

Have fun, it really is a blast! And if Ernest has good enough grades, they will really make a fuss over you! At least they did over Jarrod. Are you driving all the way across the country, or flying there, then renting a car?

can you email me (fondofsnape @ gmail dot com) and let me know when you were visiting Boston? I can't find your email to save my life and did I put it on the calendar? I THOUGHT I did but it's not there :-(

Is Ernest only looking at east coast colleges? Or is this just the first of the college tours? :-)

Wow! I might have to quiz you upon return. Two of those schools are on H-J's list of possibilities but he isn't interested in visiting until after acceptance letters. (Yeah, right -- we'll have So Much Time available to visit during his senior year. ::Head::desk::)

Of course, what I really meant to say was: Have Fun!
