This was the second time it happened.
On the way back from North Carolina, I simply set the GPS in van and told it to take me home. I didn’t even bother to take the map along. It wasn’t until we were in Delaware at the Cape May ferry, that I realized it had taken me, not on roads, but to the Delaware – New Jersey ferry. Crazy! In fact, it was a 45 minute wait until the ferry got there and then it was going to take $50 and an hour to cross. It was faster to turn around and drive around through Philadelphia.
So this time I set the GPS on my BlackBerry and headed for Lake Placid. You know where I ended up? At the Vermont – New York State ferry. You would think that you need to opt in to such craziness and that you would explicitly say that you were wanting to take a ferry. But NO. Anyway, a simple and fun $4 and 10 minute ferry ride broke up the 5 hour trip to Lake Placid.
The roads? Not quite the 299 in California or the Blue Ridge, but a great trip anyway. I forgot what a 10 hour bike day can feel like … not to mention the mornings starting out a few degrees below freezing. A great reason to smile and a birthday gift from my wonderful wife. 🙂
Sounds like the GPS company(?) is working for the ferry company!
