Hey Team, After a long day trapped in the dark, dank, pit of despair that is Penn Station, New York I finally managed to escape the gravitational pull of angry, bitter people and make my way up to Connecticut. I didn’t stay long BUT I did get stay my friend Sarah, her husband and her…

Philadelphia – The Good

Philadelphia – The Good

Hey Team, So far things are going better than I could have hoped. Well, to be honest, Philadelphia was kind of a mixed bag and much closer to what I would expect the rest of the trip to be like: Lots of incredible history and more than a little trudging through pouring rain. Now this…
