After 20 hours (and 12 installments), we were finally back at my home.

The second enemy was the state of New Jersey.

We encountered our the first of the two enemies as soon as we left I-76 in Pennsylvania.  It was Mapquest.

We finally arrived at the site of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. H hoped we could just drop off the trailer and go, but it proved to be more complicated than that.

The alarm woke us up at 6AM, and we were dressed and out the door by 6:15AM.  My t-shirt was mostly dry, enough so I could wear it without being uncomfortable.  Neither of us had slept well, but H applied her "show must go on" instincts and got herself moving.  However, there was no convenient coffee for her (hotel coffee is "muddy water," remember?) so I'd be the one driving until we passed a Starbucks.

If you're on the road long enough, sooner or later you'll reach your destination.  We finally arrived at the site of the Virginia Renaissance Faire.  The Faire had ended a few weeks prior to our arrival, but the site was still accessible.  It's located at a winery.  We passed rows of grape vines, and there were a couple of farmers doing vine-growing stuff.

While still in Maryland, H began to feel the consequences of the Starbucks coffee she'd gotten in New Jersey.  Her driving became ever more efficient as she we looked for the next rest stop.  Not only was her bladder filling up, but the gas tank was getting low; it was time to think about adjusting fluid levels in their respective containers.

H and I departed on the first leg of the trip.  We sang physics songs:

"A hundred atomic bombs on the wall,
A hundred atomic bombs!
If one of those bombs should happen to fall--"

We had agreed to wake up at about 7AM on Thursday to get an early start on the day.  As she was falling asleep, H amended that to 7:30.  I could tell she was tired.

The iPod was freshly programmed, the trailer hitch and accessories were installed.  All that remained was for H to arrive.  The plan was for her to come to my place on Wednesday evening and spend the night so we could get an early start on Thursday.

The story so far... )

This is the day I had an appointment with my car dealer to install the trailer hitch and wiring harness on my vehicle.  I'd already pre-ordered the parts, and made sure they'd arrived before I brought in my car.

Monday, I go to work as usual.

On OkCupid, they ask a question for the profile: name six things you can't do without.  I've noticed that about a third of the responses to this question include "my iPod."  This includes me.  When I saw how common that response was, I thought about removing that from the list.  After all, there's no point in being common.

I have a friend who works as an actress at Renaissance Faires.  ("Excuse me. I'm not an actress. I'm a performer.")  OK, I have a friend who's a performer at Renaissance Faires.  Let's call her H.
