In Boston answering Truckie FAQs

Do not fear… the TRUCKIES are here! I know everyone has been on edge since we hadn’t posted these past two days, so let me put your minds at ease. Wednesday was our official break day of the week. John and I simply slept-in a bit and walked around Main Street of Hyannis in Cape Cod, eating a good portion of the seafood delights that New England has to offer.

Now you might be asking yourself in utter disbelief of our lethargy, why didn’t you voyage to Nantucket Island or ferry over to Martha’s Vineyard to hang out with the Kennedy family? Perhaps you should have spent a day on the sandy beaches that Cape Cod is known for!

In response, all I have to say is… blame the Truckster. Yup, that’s right. The metallic pea trickster of a Truckster wore me out. I was tired. We had such an incredible night at the Wellfleet Drive-In movie theater seeing Toy Story 3 the night before, that by the time we got home it was WAY passed my bed time, AND we had to drop the Truckster off at the shop for some regular maintenance.

I use that term loosely because the only thing regular about the maintenance the Queen ended up requiring was the kind you get for driving the 1983 Wagon Queen Family Truckster over 5,000 miles in 5 weeks… with no ‘final destination’ in sight! Needless-to-say, she took a little longer than expected in the shop, which gave John and I an extra day away from the Truckster – just enough time to realize how much we missed her.  Those guys at Morrison Motorworks in Hyannis worked their magic and the Truckster we picked-up this morning drove like new.

It just goes to show, sometimes all you need is some time apart, some good ol’ fashioned R&R and maybe even some personal pampering (the Wagon Queen’s facelift has done wonders) to remember how good it feels to have asphalt under your tires.

Which brings me to the present. We made it to BOSTON! I could not be more excited about the next few days of looming fun that’s waiting for us! Tonight we will be joined by travel writer extraordinaire, mastermind of TBEX, and one of the lovely hosts you can watch in the Web travel series on, Kim Mance. She and her family will be joining HomeAway’s Great American Road Trip for two days – including (but not limited to) the 4th of July! John is one of America’s loudest and proudest (male) cheerleaders and I love all things gaudy that sparkle.  =) Did some one say baseball and fireworks??? If you’re in town, stop by the Mercantile Bank across from the green monster to get your photo with the Family Truckster on your way into Fenway this Sunday. We’ll be there all morning, parked and ready for our close-up, while hanging out with Boston’s Sports Radio Network WEEI-FM.

I’ll leave you with this short video John and I recorded…
