One of the great pleasures for me of the Internet Protocol is finding kindred spirits in far away places. The transformation of that relationship from virtual to real makes things like business travel endurable for me. I’m stuck in a hotel in Northern Virginia for two weeks but since I have “Internet Friends” all over the world I have been able to do things an ordinary business traveler normally can not, such as:
- Attend a friend’s birthday party.
- Go to a professional hockey game (or two!) in a strange city.
- Have dinner in an amazing ethnic restaurant with somebody who knows what to order.
- Go for a drive in a vintage car through some autumn color and covered bridges.
I’ve done all of the above in the past week, all while still going to work every day. Yesterday was the “vintage car and covered bridges” day with my friend (and GTTSR Co-driver) Mark Collien. Mark lives in Maryland and invited me along on the drive (more pics coming soon.)
Meanwhile here is a photo with two mystery cars for you to identify. I didn’t even see the mystery blue car at first, but as I walked into the bean field it was revealed lying on the opposite bank of the stream behind the bridge. Can you name the cars?
