I just got back from my first ever solo vacation.
I have the worst sense of direction, it’s my only blonde trait. So, thankfully, the trip from Cleveland to New Haven consists mostly of taking I80. There’s a little stretch on I287/87 and I95, but it’s really pretty easy. I guess that’s why I was able to make the trip without getting lost.
