Summer of '04

Since I've been a little too busy lately to post regularly, I thought I'd write a few entries that reminisce about a baseball road trip I made 5 1/2 years ago. Having recently come across the journal I kept for most of that trip, it won't require much creativity to chronicle these memories. I do plan to edit the writing style a little, so I won't just be copying my notes, but the basic content will remain the same.

On said trip, I visited five ballparks—all new to me—and traveled close to 3,000 miles in my '98 Subaru Impreza, in seven days time. I made almost the entire trip solo, with only my old friend Brian meeting up with me for one of the games in the city where he went to grad school.

In addition to the five games, highlights included spending the first day or so of the trip on crutches, driving approximately 450 miles on worn out front brakes, and spending a few nights in some interesting local hangouts. So, stay tuned as I'll attempt to relive these memories that I wasn't able to blog about as I was experiencing them. It could be interesting.
