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.
