Got in about 8PM. I left Baltimore at 11:30 this morning, so it was an 8 1/2 hour trip back.
It was a little slow going out of Mayland and Delaware, but after that it was fine. The minute I hit the Jersey Turnpike it was a parking lot. Was like this for about 10 miles, then it was fine until I hit the toll booth at the end of the Jersey Turnpike. I hit New York City traffic big time. Crept from the George Washington Bridge all the way to exit 3 in New York, however it was fine the rest of the way.
I tell you, comming back into Connecticut, while it was fine in my direction (Northbound) Southbound was a parking lot from New York City all the way back to exit 70 in Connecticut. WOW!
To give you an idea, my exit is 75, and from NYC to exit 70 in CT is about a 2 1/2 hour drive at 70 mph! I bet those people headed for new york had no idea what they were in for!
I was very impressed with the trip. I had the best time I have had in YEARS and I mean that. There were a lot of neat people, and I definatly plan on attending next year.
It was definatly worth the trip. I was also very impressed with the way Robo had everything planned down pat. (He even went so far as to put the hvac-talk logo at our tables at the crab fest! LOL!) Seriously though, not one single flaw, everything went as planned.
I would like to thank everyone that made this happen, including BC1 for covering the deposit for the crab fest.
I look forward to seeing each and every one of you next year.
