So, I have no idea why I haven’t blogged about PriceCheck before – probably because it’s been keeping me so damn busy!
Well, it’s out there and people are noticing.
From that sleepy town of Bozeman it was off to Vancouver, to a new city, and for the first time in a long while, a new country.
Once again Salt Lake City was the depressing hub, and once again, a small Canadair Regional Jet was the mode of transport.
After another ridiculous delayed connection through Salt Lake City I headed off to see Cassie up in Bozeman in Montana – Big Sky Country.
But not before managing to beg a $100 flight voucher from the ticket sales supervisor and a $7 meal voucher for the airport.
Well, after the marathon trip, I finally arrived in Austin. The State Capital of Texas. The Doctor lives here – studying at the University of Texas.
Austin is also the proud owner of the title “Live Music Capital of the USA”, which I suppose in most instances also means that it’s the Live Music Capital of the World?
Well, it took a mammoth degree of patience to handle the transport situation that was to greet me on leaving D.C. Apparently, the rails were being repaired and this required a bus ride – something I’d been avoiding like the plague!
The second day in D.C. was more relaxed. Just planned to see a few more things and then I was going to take it easy and would head off to Charlotte.
Planned to go to the Spy Museum which sounded quite cool. But, upon arrival and requiring a entrance fee of $15 I decided to go through the gift shop instead.
From New York on my way down to Charlotte, I thought I’d stop off in the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.
Having to wake up at 04:45 was not pleasant, but knowing that the subway in NY runs 24 hours I was a bit more confident that it would be easy to get to the station for my train to D.C. Unfortunately I didn’t know that after hours the subway trains are completely different to the ones during normal hours. So, of course, I got on the wrong one! But, no worries – I rectified this amateur traveller’s error and was soon at the station with enough time to get a doughnut for the trip.
