Vacation '04 — Part 1

I didn't get any comments on my previous post so I had to make my own decisions about what to do. I would have anyway, but I was expecting at least a couple of ... shall we say "interesting" ideas.

I should say that I was sick over the weekend and in no condition to drive long distance so I didn't leave until today. And now I am in Nova Scotia and will be here for the week, probably leaving to head back on Sunday.

I want to tell you about a customer service experience I had lately, as well as a couple of things about the trip up. However, I also want to sleep. After I give you some information about the drive, I think you will understand why I am going to leave the rest for a later time.

I had my GPS with me tracking the trip and thought some of the information might be interesting. Keep in mind that the GPS stats cover the entire trip, I did not turn it off or stop the tracking while I pumped gas or stopped to eat.

Total Time: 11 hours, 30 minutes, 54 seconds
Trip Odometer: 1081 kilometers
Average Speed: 93.9 km/h
I am going to leave the conversions to the reader.

As you can tell, I didn't stay still for long. I stopped, pumped gas, used the loo, bought snacks, started driving again.

I have been here for a while now, but need to settle in after the drive, stretch, and wind down before trying to sleep. Otherwise I would not have slept well. But now that I have done this, partly by writing, I am going to lie down and sleep.

I'll write about the other things I mentioned later on. Most likely before I head back.
