The last time I traveled outside of metro New York City was Thanksgiving 2011, when I spent the holiday week with the parents in Virginia.
Thanks to a mammoth deal I scored back in December (the Megabus for all of 50 cents round trip) I'm headed to my former home base of Washington, D.C. Thursday morning, to hang with buddy Alex and his gal pal Caroline.
The weather forecast for Washington on Thursday: a balmy 68 degrees. Stand by for photographic evidence, cool cats. *
