I was trying to find a way of getting to Brattleboro (Bratt henceforth) in VT from Boston, and I was getting worried of my inability to find a solution. Now that I have been to her and back in one piece, I can comfortably share this post 🙂
The search for transportation
Megabus from Boston only gets to Montpellier and some other city in VT, and then I’ll have to hope to catch another bus which can as well take another 6 hours to get to Bratt. Also, If I really wanted to go by Bus, I could dare the Greyhound and then bring a sleeping bag on the trip. Trains to Bratt were out of discussion here because none left from Boston, and the lone one from Springfield where my Marcie lives, passes only once a day at 2 pm.
I told Pam I was getting nervous! She too had been finding alternatives, and she told me there was another way. Yes one which could take me just shy of 3 hours to get to her.
First of all, she wanted to know if I was intrepid. Let me better share excerpts of our exchanges on the subject then:
Okay Marie, how intrepid are you? Would you mind flying in a small plane to Lebanon, New Hampshire?Oh sweet Pammy, I don’t know what intrepid means, unless I look it up which means I have never heard about it. So for a wanderer like me, what a pleasure to fly to Lebanon? Never knew there was another one in the US.
I did make sure to send the above picture to my mum just in case it was the last one she was receiving from me 🙂 Well, it was my first time to hop on what I have come to baptise as a ‘flying Porsche’. I couldn’t even take my ear plugs from my hand luggage because all hand luggages (indeed all luggages for the 8 passengers pictured above), were stowed away probably near the engine. It was also the first time that I had been asked my weight while checking in at an airport. I first found it absurd, but when I saw the means of transportation, I understood. Maybe they should ask before selling any tickets for such a ‘Plane’!!!
Dear gentle readers and followers, yes there are sometimes such stuffs we would do for those we love right? I did this for Pammy, not that I even googled to check before settling for that, but I was simply glad for that alternative. However, next time (I mean not for a cessna – but for some other intrepid related stuff), I am sure gonna do my homework and take my BP before and after too 🙂 I must however thank Pammy who had a hilarious laugh when I told her I havd never checked out the word intrepid not goodled any images of what I now know is a cessna 🙂
