Here is what I had to do just to make this venture.

The whole reason why I decided to do this trip was to recover from a bad car accident all the way back from mid 2010.

I was hit and runned by some guy who I still haven’t met.

Luckily I had some witnesses who came to my aid.  I also received a payout for the incident. It was never enough, but it got me on the road now.

Going through the 1st two weeks of the year was tough. I have worked too many days in the last few years not to have an impact on my first leg of the trip.

On Apr 13 – i had an am early morning Megabus trip from New York to Philly,  before I would later return to downtown Philadelphia to board a bus to Baltimore.

A lot of how I have gone about finalizing my baseball tour this year has to do with cost.  Yes I have pared my trip from 229 games to 216 games, but that has more to do with the Canadian Dollar, than increasing my budget in the year.  I could still do the original amount of contests even with some growing expenditures.

Lets start off with buying Greyhound Tickets At 7-Eleven.  I laughed at the notion during 2012, but I soon realized that this service is convenient.  Book a travel itinerary (WEB ONLY FARE), and then simply go to a nearby 7 – Eleven and pay cash.  The register receipts serves as your bus ticket.
