Retrieving CarterPosted: March 21, 2020
After over a week of social distancing alone in Boston I couldn’t take it anymore and I drove to Boston to get her. This does not have her happy, but getting back to Durham to wait out this mess gives me peace of mind.
So I left Durham at 5:45 to make the marathon Drive to Boston. As you can see from this first photo the roads were empty.
With all the world doing their best to stay home I made the trip in record time. Never in my life have I been able to drive from Durham to Washington DC in under four hours. Being Alone on the road was very strange.
I had to plan my stops thoughtfully because there were not many places open with restrooms. I also had to touch every gas pump with a napkin.
I had no issues during the whole drove until I reached New Rochelle and there was some reason the road was blocked for five minutes. New Rochelle is the center of the Covid -19 outbreak and I feared having an accident there. But it all worked out and I made it to Boston in eleven hours.
Since there is no traffic here Carter and I went out in the car to look at houses in her favorite south Boston area. Future goals for Carter.
The real proof that no one is here is I got one of the three parking spots right in front of Carter’s apartment that does not require a resident parking permit.
Tomorrow, back on the empty road to Durham, but at least I will have Carter with me.
