Tomorrow Ollie and I will be making the trek home to DC. Of course, the majority of the six hour drive is spent on the PA Turnpike — probably one of the most annoying roads in America. There’s not one thing that makes it so irritating, but many: tons of trucks, ghetto rest-stop food, never-ending construction, and sometimes stand-still traffic.
However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel — Breezewood. Whenever I get to this commercial dungeon where the PA turnpike intersects with I-70, I know: only two more hours to go! The worst is over! Of course, I pass through as fast as humanly possible and usually spew a stream of expletives and four letter words while there, but I am at least grateful for the motivation this hell hole offers me to keep on driving.
