Day 5 started outside Cleveland OH. After finding the local Starbucks to get yet another mug we headed out on our final day on the road. It turns out that all of New York is a toll road which is just awesome. It’s about $18 to get all the way across the state. Sales tax is roughly 8%. Bullshit.
After a few hours on the road we found out that Niagara Falls was pretty close by so we decided to stop in. It added about an hour to the trip, but it was pretty cool to see the falls. Everything around it is closed in the winter, and you can’t do much but just look at the falls.
The rest of the trip was pretty standard and boring until we got closer to Boston. After taking a ‘scenic’ route we finally arrived at Uncle Jack’s. The guest house is pretty awesome, and I’m happy to not drive non-stop with my mom in the car.
Things I’ve learned on the road that my Mother doesn’t like:
- Driving Fast
- Driving in the Rain
- Driving in the Snow
- Driving through mountain roads
- Driving at night
- Any combination of the above
