If anyone has ever traveled with me, you know some of the stuff I am going to post.
I second-guess a lot of the items I do when doing a day trip, especially if I am not driving the full way to somewhere.
Tomorrow (Saturday), I am driving to a somewhat nearby Amtrak train station, and then taking the train into New York City to meet up with a few former co-workers. (It’s like a castoff reunion!)
Part of my issue is always thinking I forgot something and I worry about forgetting things too much. Even silly stuff.
Such as locking my car.
I can lock my car three or four times and then still second-guess myself as to whether or not I locked said vehicle.
So being a day trip tomorrow, I don’t have to remember a lot of things.
Besides my camera. Memory cards. My GPS (hey, you never know, I might grab a cache or two…). My phone. My Kindle (of course… for the train ride) and my phone charger.
It will all fit into my camera back pack, so I should be good to go.
Anyway, the trip should be a fun one. I am looking forward to catching up with some people and the weather (crossing fingers that it stays this way…) looks pretty decent.
And once I settle into the seat on the train, that’s it. So I have to make sure I don’t forget anything in the car and all or else I’m not going to have it.
That being said, I’ve also not been on an Amtrak train. The only trains I’ve taken are subways and one time taking the Metro North into New York City (though that goes slow as it makes a lot of stops).
Hopefully this Amtrak train won’t be too packed as I’d like to be able to relax on the train a little on the ride down. Maybe snooze a little, listen to some tunes and read a book on the Kindle.
Hopefully, I’ll have some good photos, too. We’ll see how it all goes.
A little on the disc golf world. Darren was in the area briefly today, so I went and threw for a little while with him. We also discussed some ideas we had for a nine-hole disc golf course we are working on hopefully doing. I’m nearly done with the proposal I need to give to the people in charge. I know several big people were interested when I told them about it, so hopefully we can pull it off. We need to work on some pricing so we can work on sponsorships and finding a way to fund the course.
We’ll see how it goes. I’d like to have things going by the end of June if possible as that would really work with the area’s summer programs and such.
The course being worked on for Oneonta is moving along, too. We have a bunch of sponsors and are working on getting some checks so we can at least start thinking about getting nine of the 18 holes in the ground. Hopefully soon.
If both of these projects get going, it will be nice to have some disc golf options locally.
Just some randomness today as I get things in order for my day trip in the morning. I’ll get back on track soon!
