WOW! Those pictures are great!! I'm following you on instagram. Also don't worry about the shave, you can just say you were going for that hipster look.

Intermission Part 2 - Springsteen Labor Day Concert

Just one more item to cover during intermission, and then we’ll immediately move on to the trip report, I promise. I was texting over the weekend with one of my sisters, who is a huge Bruce Springsteen fan. She had just been to his show in Toronto and was saying that I needed to see him. I’ve never seen him, but have wanted to, but I’m not a big enough fan to follow his tour dates or anything. It turned out that he was playing two nights in Philadelphia, this past Sunday and Labor Day Monday. Anyhow, on Sunday afternoon we were texting again and I said something like “I’ll just show up at the stadium and I’m sure I’ll be able to get a ticket at the door”, hoping that the sarcasm would come through. She texted back, “Good tickets are still available. Go to StubHub.” Sure enough, there were. Now I had to decide, because lack of tickets wasn’t an excuse. Well, he’s not getting any younger, and I’m not getting any younger, so I went ahead and got them. Judy didn’t want to stay out late on a school night, and James said he didn’t want to go (although he regretted that decision), and of course Lauren is now at college, so it was just Marlene and I.

The rain held off for Sunday’s show, but by Monday afternoon I was wondering if I’d made a big mistake. Here’s what it looked like as we drove to the stadium. This was what was left of Hurricane Isaac as it went through our area. (All of these pictures are from my iPhone, by the way.)



By the time we got to the stadium, it had started to let up. When we parked, we looked at the car in front of us and knew right away that we were at the right place.



I tried to pull off a similar shot to my Disney fastpass pictures, but with the stadium sign in the background rather than crowds. I doctored the picture somewhat in Instagram.



Marlene and I, before the show. No rain!



Then, the Boss started at almost 8:30.









At one point, he asked for "fireflies" and everyone held up their phones, except for me, since I was taking these pictures, which technically counts as holding up your phone.





You can see him in the crowd on the left side of this picture if you look closely.





Yeah, it was awesome! We were so glad we went!


Up next: Travel Day (finally!)

Travel Day

Well, we’ve enjoyed Lauren’s reporting on the New York City, DVC-trade portion of the trip, and now that her portion is done it’s time for me to jump back onto the keyboard and document the rest.

Judy and Lauren got back on Sunday afternoon, June 17th, and we wanted to get rolling as soon as practical on Monday morning. You can imagine the flurry of activity that occurred with them returning, telling us about their trip and showing us some pictures, and then trying to get ready to leave for two more weeks. They also had laundry to do , and we took the dog to “Camp Kaiser” (we always call his dog-sitting time “Camp whoever-is-watching-him”). Actually, Judy took him to the dog-sitters. I don’t remember what I was doing at the time but I’m sure it was some productive trip-preparation activity.

Since we’d be spending one night in a hotel en-route to Vero Beach, we had everyone pack an overnight bag so that I wouldn’t have to open the cartop carrier where the bigger luggage was, until we hit Vero. Everyone would just happily grab their overnight bag when we got to the hotel and they’d have everything they could possibly need to go to bed and get up the next morning and complete our trip to Vero. Stay tuned on that one.

I only took one photo on this day, and it was before we even left home. It was a side-by-side shot of the Crisco and Philly cream cheese packages that gave us such a good story back in the pre-trip report. Link to the chapter with "the bagel story"!

Warning: Do NOT store your Crisco and cream cheese in the same refrigerator drawer. When they both look like this they can be confused for one another, with disastrous, albeit hilarious, results.


Crisco on the left. Philly cream cheese on the right.

With that important piece of history documented, we were able to pull out of our driveway at 8 am. It wasn’t your classic “oh-dark-thirty” timing, but considering the turnaround that Judy and Lauren needed to accomplish after their NYC trip, we were happy with it.

I hadn’t thought too much about the route I wanted to take (most of it would be down I-95), but we wanted to take 301 to go around D.C. on the eastern side and avoid some of the traffic. I had trouble getting the GPS to let go of its desire to take us immediately to I-95 and so had to pull over 2 minutes into the trip to try to get the GPS lined-up with the way I wanted to go. It was then that I made up my first joke of the trip. It goes like this:

My GPS asked me if I wanted to avoid tolls.
I pressed “yes” and it said, “when you get to the toll plaza…
…gun it!”

Ba-dum-bum.

Anyway, we started traveling through Delaware and the thought hit me that we’ll soon be in the south…home to Hardee’s and their luscious sausage biscuits. Maybe I could get one at some point during the trip? I had just mentioned to Judy that I had a Hardee’s sausage biscuit floating in a thought-bubble over my head when not 5 minutes later we hit Middletown, DE (stomping ground of DISers MEK and Captain_Oblivious, by the way) and there was a Hardee’s! Who knew? (Probably MEK and Captain_Oblivious, but they were keeping that info. to themselves apparently.) So I pulled-up to their drive-through ordering microphone (imagine the voice of the teacher from Peanuts cartoons…”wah wah, wah wah wah”) and ordered 2 sausage biscuits for myself, and Marlene and James looked at the menu board and both decided on some kind of bacon-cheese covered french fry monstrosity. No one else wanted anything -- apparently Judy and Lauren’s arteries weren’t in need of clogging. Anyhow, we pulled away from the microphone and Judy said, “I’m surprised you didn’t order a coffee.” Doh! Then while contemplating that mistake, I proceeded to drive right by the window where you pay and get your food. Double-Doh! I tried to get around the building quick enough that I could beat the people behind me in line, but despite nearly putting the van up on 2 wheels while going around the corners, I didn’t make it. So, I parked and went inside. Naturally, there was a customer at the register inside so I had trouble interrupting to shed light on why there confusion at the pick-up window. When I was finally able to explain what happened, one of the workers said “No wonder they looked so confused when I told them that their fries would take a couple more minutes.” Anyhow, since I was in there I ordered a coffee and picked up our order, and a couple of minutes later we were back on the road.

I’m sorry there aren’t any pictures of us driving along, but it was just basically a day-long adventure of us cooped-up in a minivan and all that that entails. We had arguments about which DVD to watch, one set of headphones had sound coming out of only one side, and we had to ask James to turn down the volume on his Nintendo games. Can anyone relate?

Oh, we did have a rather lively debate about whether time machines could ever possibly exist. James postulated, and I agreed, that they couldn’t ever exist because time travelers would have visited our time and we would have learned about the machine. The girls both argued that if someone could invent such a machine, they could also visit us without our knowledge and resist the urge to tamper with the past….kind of like Star Trek’s “prime directive”. Meanwhile, Judy time-traveled herself, by falling asleep at 9:30am and reanimating in our dimension sometime about an hour later.

Further along, Marlene asked what AM and PM stood for. I told her that AM meant “it am morning”. She then correctly deduced that PM meant “Past Morning”.

We had lunch at a Chick Fil-A somewhere in Virginia. Then we got back in the van and Lauren did some of the driving. I discovered that it’s really cool to look at Google Earth on an iPhone when you’re heading down the highway at 65mph (do not attempt this while behind the wheel). The scenery whizzes by on the app (but with a birds’-eye view), as it tries to keep up with your position, but as you go under bridges and other landmarks you can tell that there’s about a second or so delay from real-life. You have to remind yourself that the satellite picture was taken who-knows-when and that you’re not looking at an actual current feed from a helicopter camera. “Hey, I’m watching my own police chase! Woo hoo!”

Later in the afternoon Marlene awoke from a nap in the backseat (the wayback!) and asked Judy, who was sleeping in the seat in front of her, “can I open these pretzels?”, which awoke her from a sound sleep. We had a good laugh over it, and suitably teased Marlene about it, but it’s probably one of those “you had to be there” things, isn’t it? Yeah, I thought so.

Dinner was in South Carolina at a place that was part Wendy’s, part gas station, and part fruit-stand. So we ate up, fueled-up, and bought up some Georgia peaches. The guy selling the peaches yakked Judy’s ear off while I was filling the gas tank. Fortunately for her, I finished fueling so she had an excuse to leave.

Back on the road, we finally arrived at our nights’ accommodations in Brunswick, Georgia, at the Comfort Suites. We got there at 10:20pm, so it was quite a long day of travel, but we had around 2/3 of the trip behind us, so mentally, tomorrow’s journey should be easy in comparison. We had a little trouble finding the hotel because it was situated behind a gas station and my GPS didn’t recognize the street that I got as its address. It wasn’t much of a street, more like an access road. But anyway, once in the room we realized that it was going to be perfect – it had two double beds and a pull-out couch…so James, who usually gets stuck in a sleeping bag on the floor, would actually have a bed to sleep on.

Then came the words that I knew, I knew, someone would utter. Marlene looked in her overnight bag and said, “I forgot clothes for tomorrow.” “What, I got distracted!”




Up next: Vero Beach arrival
hold on -- first we have a DISmeet

It's actually pretty impressive, being a local place that doesn't get the attendance of a big amusement park.

Too funny about passing the drive-thru window! I have come close several times, but have managed to back up without hitting the car behind me.

Doesn't this count as evidence of you being a scofflaw, against the explicit "No Photos" on the ticket?

Darn it 0Judys. Glad you had a chance to see the boss.


Sounds like you drive was interesting but luckily not eventful. :

Chalk up the Hardees thing to no coffee.

Drive to Disney, Part 1: 0 Judys (photographically speaking)

You need to start spending more time with your lovely wife!!!


Thanks for the pictures from the concert. Bruce puts on a great show- I saw him in 1986. Really works hard during the show. I miss the Big Man

Glad there were no major issues during the drive. The drive-thru story is hilarious though!!!

Bummer about Marlene's forgotten clothes. Was she able to piece together and outfit from everyone else's bag, did you have to venture into the luggage or did she just wear the same outfit the next day? Or, did she pick up some fashionable items at the Comfort Suites gift shop?

Never fails someone always forgets something.

Glad you got to be the cool Dad and catch a concert and it didn't rain on you.

Good turn around to get back on the road a day after returning from NYC. We don't have Hardee's here in Louisiana so we usually stop in Alabama on our way to Disney.

And yet MEK and I had no idea you were in Middletown. Who's the one keeping secrets here, hmm?

If I recall correctly, you could also have gone to the Friendly's next door before it sadly disappeared.

Not much to say here except

Considering your GPS already advised you to try to beat the toll, how can we be sure it wasn't directing you to skip out on the drive-thru?
