North, the final vector.
Monday I and my sister did Lion Country Safari, which was rather fun.. and on the cheaper side of Florida events. (I was vaguely hoping to do EPCOT, but she was unenthused about it, and I want to do EPCOT with someone who would be enthused to be there.) Also went to Boomers, which is a Dave&Buster's minus the TGIFriday's and plus minigolf and go-karting. Quite fun.

Tuesday I headed north, met up with koogrr again for lunch, and then north to Cary, NC to stop with krin_o_o_. Wednesday we had some North Carolina BBQ (ahr nom), and then northward further.. stopped at the Edgar Allen Poe Museum in Richmond, VA. Small but quite nice, and the "Poe in Comics" exhibit had some wonderfully wacky stuff. That night I made it to Rigel and xydexx's place.

Thursday, off to murakozi's in Herndon VA, and went to Frying Pan Farm, where goats and horses slobbered on my shirt. Still hashing out plans for today, but likely to include board game night with Rigel and Xydexx.

The remainder of the trip should shake out roughly like this:

Saturday: Baltimore most of the day, staying in Frederick MD
Sunday: DC for most of the day, staying in Frederick MD
Monday: To Philadelphia.
Tuesday: Miscellaneous NJ/NY stops.
Wednesday: Return home.
Thursday: Panic attacks over future decisions of life, dwelling, career and relationships. And catching up on Podcasts. Repeat until I have a job.

I was in Cary back in June. My sister and nieces live there. Pretty town, but I think I'd have migraines from how confusing the roads are, with all of the signage ordinances..:P

"Well", said the captain, "where do we go now, eh, where are we going? When you've gone a long, long way down to the sun and touched it and lingered and jumped around and streaked away from it, where are you going then? When you go away from the heat and the noonday light and the laziness, where do you go?"
... "There's only one direction in Space from here on out," he said at last.
They waited. They waited as the ship moved swiftly into cold darkness, away from the light.
"North," murmured the captain. "North."
And they all smiled, as if a wind had come up suddenly in the middle of a hot afternoon.

- Ray Bradbury, "The Golden Apples of the Sun"

(One provoking line in your entry, mongo, and I just kind of go nuts)

A fine, fine story that is.. and a wonderfully appropriate quote. Dangit. Why didn't I go with it? :)
