Everything hurts...

...but in a good way. In the last 28 hours or so, I've left the National Fire Academy, driven to Philadelphia, taken in as many of the sites I possibly could, headed northeast and met jeniferrobin for the first time in person, visited Liberty State Park, driven through the Holland Tunnel, and navigated Manhattan traffic with my Hyundai Accent like the bad ass I am.

I can just wait for the next foggy day and do that on the ground.

I've got a couple or three places I'd like to see before climbing back into the rental and making tracks to Maryland for one more week of class. You should see this umbrella. I've used it once and I think it's already broken. Oh, well. It was dry under my broken umbrella... It's good for something.

G'night, John Boy.
