I am a planner.  Yes, I like to have control.  I admit I like to know where I am going, how I am getting there and what I am doing while I am there.  I don’t have to plan every details but quite a few of them would be good.

So I have a few road trips coming up this spring or late winter as the case may be.  I am going downstate in March for a half marathon.  Running is on Sunday but I am going on Saturday and staying over as it is the weekend that Daylight Savings Time starts so I want to get good sleep that Saturday night.  I am staying at The Lodge at Rock Hill so if you have any ideas in that area, let me know.  I will start looking soon.

Then, I am going to Boston in April.  I have a friend who is running the Boston Marathon and I told him I would be there to see him cross the finish line and I will.  I will have at least Sunday to do some sightseeing, possibly even Saturday and Friday – though that is not totally set in stone yet.  I had a hotel room with a great rate.  I had a friend offer me a room.  Gave up the hotel room and then found the friend was going to be out of town.  I got a room back but not quite as great a rate.  I will be staying in Cambridge Sunday and Monday nights.

By all means, tell me what you would do, where you would go.  Part of my Boston trip will be a write off as I am looking for bookstores for an author to do signings at in the summer.  I can’t wait to be on the road this year.
