Yesterday was one of those days. I had looked for the best and fastest route to Hershey, PA. Finally I told Sherry, I am putting the address in the GPS and following it. We drove in 6 states yesterday. It went well, up to somewhere in Connecticut. I-95 South. Sherry was looking at her computer it said go another way.
Then I hit a dead stop, due to an accident. Slowly we got past that. Not paying much attention, except to the directions on the GPS. Once I said that is a huge lake out there, Sherry said, “Honey I think that is the ocean.” WHAT?
Then and only then did I see NYC on the sky line, WHOA! then I see the GPS say turn right. Above the intersection it says, “CARS ONLY”. In all that traffic I pulled to the side and stopped. The GPS was taking a short cut on a city street to save 100’. They can do that. We decided the best thing to do was stay on I-95. As we approached George Washington Bridge, the traffic stopped. One lane was closed on GW Bridge.
Ever been in a truck sandwich?
As much as I would like to see Yankee Stadium, now is not the time!
On the George Washington Bridge.
New York City Skyline, from the GW bridge
From the bridge.
On the Bridge headed for the New Jersey Turnpike.
Just over the Bridge the Third time I saw all brake lights:
Dead stop with 4 lanes going to one.
The New Jersey turnpike entrance is closed. All traffic fed to a feeder road.
On the left is the blockage. An asphalt truck had rolled over.
We did not get a full shot of the truck but it was back up, wheels down and being driven off. We were in the backup for an hour.
Finally arrived here at the park after making ten or twelve unnecessary turns because the GPS figured we needed to save 50 feet. It was not all bad, we got a lot of laughs at ME, for following a GPS and I knew better.
Thanks for going with us thru the outskirts of NYC, this writer at times was picturing driving down Broadway in the Motor home.
We paid $33 in tolls. This southern guy hates tolls.
Thanks for reading this junk.
Protons have mass?
I didn't even know they were Catholic.
I think it is a Dodge or Desoto upper 1950’s.
