Two states down today. New York, and Connecticut. Only 48 more to go. We also visited New Jersey and Massachusetts, but not the state capitols.
Four awesome rides, all really cool people.
I doubt many people hitchhike in Times Square, but we did.
Dave, Tony and Inessa, and Rick got us through New York, while Ed and Stephanie took us through Massachusetts into Hartford.
We're now both masters of western Massachusetts geography, history, politics and especially college sports from Ed and Stephanie. They picked us up in Lee, Massachusetts and took us down to Hartford, Connetticut, our second state. Ed also serenaded us with his barber shoppe quartet renditions of College sports songs. Well done Ed, your retirement has opened a new door to singing.
According to Ed, basketball was invented in Holyoke Mass, not Springfield. We have no reason to doubt him either.
"Big ups" to Nicole, the self proclaimed "Unluckiest girl in New England". Nicole was on her way to Hartford from Providence, Rhode Island to pick us up tonight when her car broke down. Thanks for trying Nicole, we'll see you in Providence tomorrow.
So we're spending the night in Hartford and looking to go to Providence, Boston, Concord and maybe more tomorrow. Are you in these areas? Will you be going to these areas? Give us a call...
