This is a little late because, well, I was a little distracted by it being a pretty exhausting trip.
The first awesome thing was driving (with my friend and coworker Matt Goodwin - the family stayed home) to the UN office in NYC in 4 1/2 hours, including two stops. Yes, only four and half hours. The best case scenario was three hours, forty minutes, so to add two ~20 minute stops and still make it within that time was pretty incredible. Yes, we got up at 3am and were on the road by 4, all so that we could get to NYC for a meeting by 9:30. Needless to say, we made it.
