The first thing that came to mind were the Red Flag stories of “going downtown”, where the populace was SAMs and other aerial threats. That’s exactly what came to mind when I saw this going into New York; this was the first time seeing the big city on a GPS, so it was very enlightening to say the least. If anything, it made me more excited.
On our way to Washington D.C, we stopped at McDonalds for breakfast. Pancakes were the food of order; definitely enjoyed this, since our syrup never tastes like anything that can be made at home.
