Buck drove hillbilly style to get a good nights sleep


Do you know how sketchy it is to drive 30 minutes with a full sized mattress loosely attached to the roof of your car? Well, I found out the answer to that question this weekend, turns out it is pretty sketchy, yep, I was “that guy,” driving 40 mph on I-93. HA! What else was I to do? I was alone in Boston and in desperate need of a bed after a red eye flight from LA.

The flight turned out to be pretty good. I have been traveling a ton this past year and this was my first direct flight across country in a long time. I wonder how much time in the past year I have wasted sitting at layovers?(random thought)  Anyway, I usually try to catch some sleep on these across country flights, but this time the anticipation of the move kept me wide awake. Good thing I flew jet blue and could watch……

After a weekend here in Boston, the adrenaline is starting to wear off and the jet leg is kicking in. I did accomplish a good amount this past weekend. I picked up my new ride, and along with that I got an easy pass. It’s my first easy pass, I’m pumped! Little things in life excite me, if you haven’t noticed. I also bought a dresser, got a desk from my uncle, spent time with my parents who were in town, let my mother clean my room (yes let her) then moved all my stuff in, and I even played a pick-up game of lax up in Manchester, NH. Aside from my body’s reaction to the extreme temperature change, the alligator arms and the bleeding feeling I had in my lungs, the game went great.  I was so pumped to be LAXIN’. I am now counting down the days till the Cannon’s season kicks off!

I am jacked to say I am now a Bostonian!

Oh and any suggestions for a good date night restaurant? My lady is coming to town this weekend and I need to show off this city!

I’ll check back with you soon.
