New York: Day One

Lady Jaye and I are up in New York state this week for her cousin’s wedding. It’s been in the planning phase for quite a long time, and it shows. As far as I know, the only mishap has been an accidentally removed train from a bridesmaid’s dress and two of the bridesmaids revolting against the group’s hairstylist. Certainly nothing even remotely Bridezilla, which is a refreshing change to the drama-rama that runs in my family.

We put in about nine hours including breaks for food, coffee, whatnot. It was a very pleasant drive, despite having to deal with the crooked HVAC company (more on that later). My baby did great on the road, even with our stops we averaged about 65MPH. We peed a lot.

Anyway, here are some snaps of our drive up:

This guy was a rock star. I have always loved the look of this BMW R1200GS. He was wearing a textile jacket and leather overpants.

Another shot of a fellow motorcyclist. I really wish we could have ridden up on motorcycles instead of driving in the car, but it’s hard to carry a suit and a maid of honor dress in a GIVI topcase. 😉

Everytime I pass this sign on the way up I wish I had my camera on me. This time I planned ahead! I always imagine Battlestar Galactica’s Kara “Starbuck” Thrace yelling “FRACK!” over and over again.

Me in the passenger’s seat.

Not much planned for today, we’ll see what other pictures I can take before the whole wedding shindig goes down.

    Have a safe trip. When at weddings I do this thing where I envision terrible things going wrong, it’s actually quite entertaining.
