Maybe it was because of a tough travel day on Monday, but I never even realized I could have just stayed in Philly for a game once my initial plans were derailed to Washington.

In this whole year trip I have over 300 reservation numbers to keep track of.  On this Tuesday I made a rookie mistake.

All the way back in March I switched out a bus trip to Washington from the Amtrak Station in Philadelphia.  The idea back then was to stay overnight in the District Monday Aug.03, 2015.

This idea changed with the prospect of coming back nightly to home base in Sicklerville, NJ. for the entire 6 game homestand for the Nationals this weekend

It is kind of weird the only time i have posed for a picture in front of a Megabus was for a reservation I had that wasn't even valid anymore.

I sit here humbled that I made it this far in my journey.  4 years ago at this time, I was not in a good place.  I was working, going home and trying to fend off headaches, dizziness and any loud sounds.

The government in my home town province of Canada, was not helping me with my claim versus a 2010 accident where I was hit and ran by a driver of a big truck.  I would later hire a personal injury and take them to task.  These were the dark days of depression one suffers from repeated concussions.  It even went to other parts of my body like arms and shoulders – tingling from stress.

So having said that, one of the things I did during this stretch was still capitalize my best skills with what was given to me. I turned to professional handicapping and earning Air Miles through a google search engine.

I used all the anger I had towards the situation – and it fueled me to earn as much as I could while on the shelf. Read the rest of this entry
