This Sunday afternoon, I'll get a ride from slipjig and rafaela to the Albany Amtrak station, and take a train directly to the South Boston station. I want to visit Boston and Salem (including octoberland) for a few days before heading home, probably on or around Wednesday the 3rd.

If I can swing it, I hope not to rent a car for the final part of this trip. (Expense + driving in Boston = DO NOT WANT something I'd prefer not to do.)

So I need to figure out who I can stay with and who may be able to provide rides. I'll get into the Boston train station late (about 9:45 p.m. according to the schedule). shadesong and yendi, would you be willing and able to let me stay at your house again that night? You're about nine miles from the train station; I could take a cab to your place.

If that won't work, I'll figure out something else.

I also see train and boat options for getting from Boston to Salem to see octoberland in her natural environment, and that's a part of the trip I really hope to do. Jen, would there be room for me to crash at your place early next week?

I'll firm up plans later. To quote Henry Jones, Jr., "I'm making it up as I go along." Thanks for everyone's help so far in making my trip happen. Now to finish it, then go home and figure out what's next.

I would so love to have you stay here but my place is not well suited to guests. It's a one bedroom and I only have a loveseat. So I could try to find some uber cheap lodging for you here in Salem or see if anyone else I know could provide crash space. Also I have Michael's car right now so I could provide some transportation.

Can't wait to see you!

Okay; maybe a day trip to Salem would be best. I'll keep that in mind. I definitely want to get to you. (I thought it was cool that there's a boat between Boston and Salem.)

There are always possibilities, Spock said...

Yep, the boat is pretty nifty and a day trip is fine. I'll even get up early so we have more time together. ;)

    I am glad you exist and that you're choosing to blog!

    Maybe not feeling poetic is a poetic state all its own?

    Try to capture that feeling - I think that will be reflective of many folks'…

    I think I should wait until I have something better to brag about.

    I think it's okay to talk about your life, if you have something you want to share, even if you are doing well.

    I've been serving myself to watch this one day.
