On the Road to PodCamp Boston

Zipping along to PodCamp Boston, in the car with Locobone and Tommy Vallier of TalkShoe. Trying to explain to the Canadian border guards the rationale for driving 13 hours from Erie, PA to Boston by way of Kingston, ON, is not an easy task...

Our first (and thus far only) near-death experience came when a woman decided we didn't exist and tried to merge into our car at 85 mph. Thanks to Locobone's swift reflexes ("Um, Tom..." *ssssswerve*), we're still in one piece and none the worse for the wear. To her credit, the woman did the honorable thing and fled.

Now we're at a rest stop near Syracuse, NY, at which point Locobone will nap in his own backseat while I drive his car across New York with a Canadian co-pilot. Social media is all about putting yourself in other people's shoes / nations / cars, so I guess we're right on schedule. Should be in Boston around 10 PM.

(If anyone wants to meet up in Boston tonight, Twitter one of the gents linked above -- my phone is not Twitter enabled.)

  • It's the near-death experiences that are most memorable and make the trip all more more entertaining and fun. Have a good time in Boston dude!
