So refreshing to see some people still know that commas go inside quotations.

It's a forum, it's really not as serious as you make it.

Maybe try to relax slightly more.

You'll be glad you did.

Thank you sir from down under.
Having lived in the US for 8 years for work and taking every opportunity to explore the many great places, this brings back great memories.
Really appreciate your posts...my wife and I are back in November for another 3 week road trip, you give us great food for thought.
Thanks

Haven't seen one from you in a while, Rick! Great photos and write up.

I haven't been to Princeton since looking at colleges way back when. And I ended up going to school in New Haven (long family tradition at Yale), so I spent a ton of time around Connecticut.

I remember reading one of your older posts, beautifully done and well kept E93. I'm 10 minutes down the road from Princeton and didn't know all the history lol.

Thanks for sharing... but holy HDR!!!!... need to take it easy on the processing, HDR is really not pleasing to look at unless it is a big wide-open landscape.

Well we are kind of damned in CT with unreal taxes and shitty winter roads. . That said, pretty nice place to live. I actually learned quite a bit from the write up. So thank you! I take my M on Litchfield drives all the time. Preferably to Lime Rock. Stop by Lakeville next time! Nice job.

Great trip report as always.

Especially enjoyed the story about the man buried in the rum barrel.

While I appreciate the sage advice, it really wasn’t meant to be taken seriously. It was meant to be humorous.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’ve got to get back to relaxing

Thanks Rick, another great read. The one mini mansion reminded me on my childhood home (my mum still lives there) - a Georgian style house!

Rick, thanks friend for the good reading. Once again you brought the past into the future. I gotta kick out of “Wrong wife??”.
As I am about to board the plane going to the Philippine and taking with me a drone, I am thinking that you flying a drone and taking photos would be an awesome experience.
Take care friend and be careful!

SDPLV,

Thanks, I always appreciate the feedback!

There's a whole lot to see within easy driving distance of Las Vegas, so I hope you'll soon get a chance to do some trips of your own. Check out https://www.roadrunner.travel/find/t...america/usa/nv for some great touring ideas.

BAB,

Ha ha--I hear you!

Ironically, I cared little about history in high school, and I took exactly zero history courses in college. Now I find myself fascinated by history, whether it's writ large or writ small.

Part of the fascination is the ability to visit historic places in person, especially when it involves a BMW trip!
