Okay, so here we go. I'm 1000 miles / 15 hours away and I'm loving it.
I'll have plenty of stories to tell soon. Some highlights thus far: Car breakdown less than an hour away from St. Louis. Arriving at 3am and then staying up and messing around 'til sunrise. Yankees game in some really awesome seats that my uncle won in a raffle--he's not much of a baseball fan so he let us use 'em.
