Beach Bound...

With any kind of luck, in the next couple hours I will join the oppressive throng of humanity attempting to reach Cape Cod. I'm fully expecting the 110 mile trip to take me somewhere between 3.5 and 4 hours, between the normal crush of traffic in the outer Boston traffic ring to the absolute dead freakin' stop as you near the actual Cape and the bottleneck of the bridges leading over the Canal to the Cape proper. The children have been instructed to bring sufficient electronica and such to keep themselves amused for an extended period of time, so I'm cautiously optimistic that we might survive the trip.

I've got a few posts pre-loaded for next week and will be blogging when possible/the mood strikes. Having both a smartphone and a 3G iPad means I can surf the internet/Facebook/Instagram/blog from inside the camper, on the beach, or even at the fish pier. I'm bringing the good camera and also the HandyCam, so expect some vacation blogging. So far [knocks on wood] the weather report is favorable, and the Cape is a positively gorgeous area. Blogging will most likely be on the lighter side, unless we get a rainy day or two.

I'll be back and in full force soon enough, but for now, the batteries need a recharge...

That is all.

Good luck, Jay. I had to go from Salem to Brockton this afternoon. 3 hours. Waiting desperately for dinner so that I can have a glass and not be all *drinking in the afternoon.*

Take a couple of accessory USB gadgets and charger cords, and they can recharge their electronica off the car engine.
