You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

To Connecticut I Go


Saturday, Jun 23, 2007 from Stamford, Connecticut

Yesterday started as a slow day. Breakfast was served around noon and I took time to do some laundry, the laundry must be done. There are always lots of chores on the trip, spent some time straightening out my stuff in the Compass, and I gave it a nice bath and massage, washing it up to give it a great shine again.

Being from the U.P. I don’t really know what traffic means, at least not compared to metro areas. So there I am, getting ready to leave West Orange on my way to Connecticut, the time is about 5:30, the middle of rush hour. Rush hour never crossed my mind. Traffic was backed up a long ways behind the George Washington Bridge, I moved about five miles in an hour. It was the worst backup I’ve had on the trip and I was getting a little impatient. I do miss the long open drives out west.

Eventually I finally made it to Stamford, CT. Larry is hosting me. Let’s see… my brother went to school with this girl Rachel who works out here in Connecticut, so that’s how I got in touch with Larry. So last night I enjoyed a burger off the grill with a group of 24 year old software programmers, most of the conversation was stuff that was either over my head or I didn’t know anything about. But hey, that’s ok, I’m a listener rather than a talker. And the biggest lesson of the night, I learned how to eat an ear of corn elegantly.

38 states! It’s going to be a big better when I’ve got less than 10 to go.
