Megan & Ryan's Connecticut Itinerary
Saturday, September 5, 2009 - Wednesday, September 9, 2009
Howdy, folks! Summer has come and passed; the innocent can never last; wake me up when September ends.
For Megan and me, September 2009 is chock full of trips... well, make that all of Fall 2009. In fact, all of our weekends are booked
from now until the beginning of December. To kick things off, we are spending Labor Day in Connecticut, plus a few days extra. But,
we are doing it all without taking any time off from work! Guess you'll have to check out the itinerary to figure out how we're
working this one out!
All times are local to the particular city. All of this trip will be in the Eastern Time Zone,
which is zero (0) hours later than our friends and family on the East coast who may be stalking us.
Emergency Contact Information:
Phone (Ryan's Cell):
(will be checked as often as possible)
Once again, we will be bringing a webcam along with us for the ride. Whenever we can, we will try to pump new images to this page every 20 seconds - no need to open a new window or refresh!
If the picture doesn't update, then we have the webcame off. Just check back later.

Saturday, September 5
Happy Birthday, Megan! Today, we'll be spending all day up the shore in North East, Maryland. One never knows what will happen or when, so there's no use even trying to guess. But, at some point later in the evening, we'll be headed back to our house because we have a flight to catch early the next day!
Sunday, September 6
Pay attention, folks! This is the only day that's going to look anything like a normal "Ryan and Megan Trip". We had a New England II trip planned for September 19-20, but alas, we had too many scheduling conflicts to warrant another trip to Hartford. So, we'll be taking a very mini trip (New England 1.3??) today with Megan's siblings. First, we'll head off to downtown Hartford and check out the The Wadsworth Atheneum , followed by The Mark Twain House and Museum . That will get us into late afternoon, after which time, we'll take a roundabout trip back to Megan's parents house by way of Washington & New Preston . Eventually, we'll make our way to Railtree Hill Road , where we'll be spending the rest of the weekend.
Monday, September 7
Happy Labor Day! Today, there's a party planned starting at 1pm at Megan's parents' house. And that's about it for today.
Tuesday, September 8
And today marks our first day back at work... seriously. Megan and I are both teleworking today, and believe me, we'll be working. I, for one, have rescheduled all of my Monday meetings to today, so I'm pretty booked. Maybe we'll have time for fun in the evening, but otherwise, today is our work day.
Wednesday, September 9
I'm a bit skeptical of today's events. Megan and I, along with Megan's family, are attending a seminar at the Hartford Civic Center  all day today. We both are getting work credit for this, as it is billed as a Get Motivated! business seminar. And take a look at some of the speakers that are supposed to be there in person: Colin Powell, Laura Bush, Steve Forbes, Joe Montana, and Rudy Giuliani... for $19 for all of us. We'll see how that goes; I think I'll have to see this to believe it's real. Immediately after that's over, we'll be off to the airport  to head back home. That's all for now folks... stay tuned for another trip just 3 days later!
Don't have time to read all the nonsense above? I don't blame you. Just check out the map below to see our guesstimated route.
