Thoughts from the concourse. Con't
Maybe if I drink enough I'll blackout and wake up in Atlantic City.
Or Boise....

At least you are entertaining us while sharing your misery. Thanks. Sorry.

not censoring myself is fun.

Do you do a lot of traveling for work?
If so, could we start a little exchange?

Could you get me a postcard from where ever you travel to and I will reimburse you for your trouble?

Um. Why?

Its just a geeky thing that I do.
When people go on trips, I ask them to bring me postcards back.
I don't travel much so I like to do it vicariously through others.

Ugh

Ugh, that sucks majorly, will.

I'm sorry.

The late hour does make it more of a blessing that one does not have to pay tolls for going INTO New Jersy, just to leave.

It is kind of disconcerning to pass the tollbooths on the other side of the highway, and I imagine that without warning (if you are without warning) it might seem surreal and nightmarish while driving at midnight into the armpit of america.

Also! It is almost impossable to make a left turn in New Jersey. Most left turns are instead Jug Handles
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jug_handle ) which you need to pass the road you want to turn onto, and make a right hand turn from the right hand lane in order to merge left with the road you wanted to travel on. The imge on the wikipedia page should help. The jughandle is the large circular turn on your right if you are traveling from right to left.

Unless the turn is not a jughandle, in which case you are royally screwed and angry about it as you miss you turn. There are just enough of those in Jersey to make me root even more for its eventually flaming demise.

That would also suck not knowing going into New Jersey, espeically at midnight.

I wish you all the best in your sojurn under the flapping arm of America. Drive safe.

Re: Ugh

Actually, I have made it to and from all destinations with zero missed turns, including the bizarre u-turn, merge lane jazz to get to my hotel. I'm amazed.

I did that once. I ended up in Orlando.
