Note to Self:

  • Oru does not make a good navigator for Oru.
  • ALWAYS bring a third party with you when dropping a friend off at a place you're never been.
  • Back roads of Woodstock are a mite creepy at night. Therefore, don't forget extra batteries for your disc-man-turned-car-radio for the ride home.
  • Googlemaps over Mapquest ANY DAY.
  • Bus depots are amazingly sketchy places.
  • Take advantage of rest stops!
  • When driving through Kingston, go durring the day if you are unfamiliar with the area. And remember - ask the gents outside the PUBS, not the ones walking down ally-ways for directions.
  • If it takes an hour to get somewhere, and you know for a fact your self-navigation skills are somewhat lacking - give yourself an hour and a half at least instead.
  • When travelling alone, walk with confidence and a bit of a devil-may-care slouch. And apparently, if someone randomly starts to talk to you, escape to the restroom of your choice. And then remain there until you are rescued.
  • When travelling long distances, in the summer, in a car with no operational air conditioning unit, REMEBER: It is imperative to bring a new change of clothes. Or sit in your underwear. Whichever is more comfortable for you, I suppose.
