Freakish Delays For Travel Over FRI/SAT Almost Cause Game Misses: 217 MLB Games Trip Still Intact For 2015

a 30 hour travel sector tested my limit and sanity once again. Overall it was not a very good week of execution on either my part, or parties that were helping me on the voyages.  I am hoping that having my car with me for the majority will help clean that up in the next 10 days in the Midwest, Toronto and Baltimore, before I hit the West Coast for an 11 day road swing.   At least I made it to Yankee Stadium early enough to receive this killer cowboy hat.  Unfortunately I will be selling this on EBAY to help pay for some of the fiasco that was this week.

I started out Friday morning (Aug.07, 2015) with much swagger.  I began the day with an exciting interview opportunity in which I nailed for a potential paying gig surrounding MLB.

Since I couldn’t take my car to a Park and Ride in Sicklerville, N.J. (since I would be gone for 40 hours on Friday and Saturday), I walked 2 miles to my public bus – in order to make the connecting transport to Philadelphia Amtrak 30th Station. I did not want to risk a tow charge for using the Park N ride service for too long.

I ate a heavy helping of Ramen noodles before leaving.  Hey, you gotta save dough where you can.  My friend Gary Herman gave me a free coupon for a Chic – fil-a sandwich earlier this week – which I capitalized on since it was 800 feet from my public bus Friday..

NJ Transit took me to the Lindenwold PATCO Speedline.  I have taken this method all week.  It costs just $3 for a one way maneuver into downtown Philly.

If I am headed to New York – they have a Megabus pickup location at Philly independence Hall.  It only takes 25 minutes.

Today was not one of those days.  Trips to Washington are picked up from Amtrak 30th Station only. It is still a $3 move for me because it falls within the free interloop zone for light rail trips out of Jefferson Station.  (Right across from the Greyhound Station on Filbert Street).

So back to the pending weirdness.  I arrived ready to make this journey from the Speedline, when all of the transit rail systems were down to the oil leak a few miles up the train tracks. Read the rest of this entry
