Well, that was quite a whirlwind trip, even for me. We drove from Indy to the Eastern tip of Long Island in an amazingly short time. We left at 5pm Sunday and were in South Hampton by 9am. It was decided that we needed to at least stroll along the beach for a minute. After seeing all the hurricane damage we found a spot to cross the dunes and nearly froze to death in the hard wind and 20 degree air.We collected sea shells and quartz rocks for the kids. The shells had ice in them, it was that cold.
We did our business and made the purchase needed by noon and headed for our next stop in Connecticut. We decided it would be best to take the ferry from Orient point to New London rather than attempt the horrific NJ/NY traffic. I was not thrilled with the crossing due to the fact that the only previous times I've been on a ferry, they were submerged. Not very confidence inspiring.
Once the van was fixed, we were able to make good time and made it home by 2:30 am. we traveled 1840 miles in 2 1/2 days. Not including the ferry mileage. Mission accomplished.
What did I bring on my trip? My EDC carry bag/ Lightweight backpack with clothes and some snacks. Pretty basic! It's nice to know you can grab a small bag and know it's all you will need to get you through.
