Last Days – Roadtrip2k8


So the trip is over and we are all back home.

The last few days were good, when we got to Pittsburgh we chilled in the hotel room that night trying to figure out what the hell we were going to do for an entire day in Pittsburgh before the Pirates game… We ended up going to get some food at the original pancake house, then Pat wanted to check out this Mt. Washington or something. It was basically just a cable car thing that pulled you up the side of a mountain while checking out the live Turkey’s running around the hillside. Once we got to the top, we looked around a bit and took some pictures, then went back down, it killed all of an hour at the very very most. The only other thing we could think of to do was to head to the movie theater… again. So we ended up seeing “What Happens in Vegas”, it was alright, but either way it helped kill some time before the Pirates/Brewers game.

The game was pretty good, the stadium is pretty cool, but obviously the Pirates are not that popular of a team. Grand total for paid attendance was just over 7,000 people. I’d say the stadium could hold about 42,000, it was empty.

After the game we drove straight to Cleveland and got some sleep. The next day (yesterday) we went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum for the day. They wouldn’t get us bring our cameras in so there are no pictures, besides the 2 or 3 that Pat snuck. It was interesting although I enjoyed the Baseball Hall of Fame more. And that was it, after that we jumped in the car and started making our way back to Chicago. We got into town around 9PM last night.

Overall a great trip, personally I wouldn’t change anything about what we did… Well maybe wouldn’t have booked the NY hotel room so early, but we really had no choice, nor did we know that the game in Boston would get rained out, causing us to stay in Boston another day and have to drive straight through to New York. But all in all it was a great trip.
