So I won’t be going to as many places as I thought I would. There were some unforseen expenses that ate a bit into my money but that’s OK. For four days I’ll be in Salem, MA and I’ll visit Boston as well. Then because of expenses for hotels and such I’ll be checking out Nov.1st.
Since I have almost a week before returning to work, my friend offered me the ability to have a ‘staycation’ at her house so I don’t have to go back home right away and be with my family (Did that sound bad? haha.). The plan right now is after Nov.1st I think I’ll take another day or two on the road sleeping in my car and just driving and visiting places. Perhaps Connecticut since it’s so close to Massacheusettes.
My car has all new tires and the transmission fluid and oils have all been replaced. New brake line after my old one blew out on the mechanic when he was taking it for a test drive to find out what exactly the noise the brakes were making was. Hotels are already booked and by the time it is ready for me to leave, I should have 1,000 dollars saved up which will be more than enough for 5 days.
I’m so excited and time trickles on just as slow as ever to make me wait even longer.
Salem, MA for Halloween, then to Boston, MA and then to Cleveland, OH before going back home. I think I’ll take a week and half off as well instead of just a week. Because fuck it that’s why, and I need to get the hell out of here.
I’m so happy, the window in the car is fixed and so is the flooring. My mechanic said there was a little hole in the floor that he sealed up and that’s where the water was coming from. Also by the first week of December I should have enough money and be able to replace my cars two front tires. So all the tires will be new. I still need to put a container of damp rid or whatever it’s called in the car though.
Now just to save up money, I’m so excited! I think I’ll book hotels about two or four months ahead of time, that way I’ll know for sure how much money I’ll have to deal with. So now I just have to save save save!
I’m going to take a full week off work, Monday-Monday. I’m leaving Sunday night as soon as I get off of work at midnight. I love driving at night and am a night owl so this won’t bother me. Also I love how deserted the roads can get late at night too. No traffic, yay for me.
I’m just having a hard time deciding where I want to go. I know I want to go to at least two states. And I’m definately going to Cleveland, OH (Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame! Woot!). I was thinking Kentucky after that or maybe Vermont, but I’m not sure. If I went to Kentucky, it’d take me longer to get home than if I went to Vermont. Who knows I have a year to think this over.
Before I leave though I need to save up for work on my car.
I know I want to replace to two front tires and get new ones. I need my window fixed and to change the oil and stuff before I leave. Definately want the car detailed and cleaned if I can. I’ve been losing a battle with the rain and water and my car’s floorboards somehow constantly getting soaked with water when I drive over puddles. So now there is a faint smell of mildew in the car. >_<;;
I’m also going to have to try to save up as much money as possible until next year. So here’s to hoping that I do this right! :D
I cannot wait for next year!
but the way things are looking right now, it doesn’t look like it will happen that way. I can however check off the states I’ve already been to and get that out of the way.
