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.
