Oct 14, 2011 - Princeton
Paid a visit this afternoon to my niece Victoria who lives in Princeton. I arrived early so I checked out the town and walked by the main entrance to the University. We had a wonderful chat over lunch and then took a driving tour of the neighborhood - saw where Einstein used to live! It seemed like it took forever to drive back to Montclair. A storm came through right at rush hour which slowed the traffic even more than usual. Mary had invited family members to dinner this evening. It was so good to see everyone - even Katherine ,who is in...Jump to full entry
Oct 19, 2007 - 5 weeks + 1 day
We have been at this journey for 5 weeks. In some ways - that doesn't seem like much - but when I think about how much we've done and what we've seen, it's amazing that we can do so much in such a short time. As we were walking back from Princeton to the house, we calculated the number of miles we've walked on this trip. We averge a bit over a mile a day - about 8-9 miles/week.

We came back to her place, did a quick change and headed over to a climbing wall near Trenton, called ROCKVILLE. I've never done climbing walls, so I gave it a shot. It...Jump to full entry
Jul 29, 2006 - The Road Trip Begins...
Left Manhatten to pick up our car (a '03 Ford Focus) from Middletown, New Jersey. We decided to use a place based in NJ because a/ it was cheaper and b/ we didn't want the hassle of driving in New York. Good plan in theory.... Except just over one hour later I'm driving across George Washington Bridge leading back into Manhatten! We were thrown into the deep end to begin with, having to deal with 6 lane turnpikes and expressways (I'm still not sure what a turnpike is by the way), endless toll booths and crazy Jersey and New York drivers in...Jump to full entry
