If it's Friday, it's time for Friday Five!

1. How are you planning to spend the summer [winter]?
I'll be right here mostly. Going to Anthrocon in July. May be going to Virginia Beach in September, just a bit after summer.

2. What was your first summer job?
Never had one.

3. If you could go anywhere this summer [winter], where would you go?
Probably somewhere near the Arctic circle where it isn't scorching hot.

4. What was your worst vacation ever?
They were all good. Well... there maybe was one less-than-perfect trip to Singapore where I fell and hurt my ankle.

5. What was your best vacation ever?
First trip to Virginia Beach 3 years ago. Everything I wanted was there. It's as though North Jersey moved right next to the beach and got many Long John Silver's and Hardee's. I couldn't ask for more.

Received email from the NY Newsday reporter. The article on geocaching will come out on Monday, June 30. I'll link to it on that day if the article is online.

I'm also supposed to be receiving some cards soon for the 2003 NYGO State Picnic. Considering the event is in Western NY, I'm not sure it would do any good to place the cards in geocaches where I am... but okay.

Just found out that the construction going on at the Hillsdale Toll Plaza on the Garden State Parkway is to install Express EZPass. This looks to me like a step in the wrong direction. Okay, so you will soon be able to drive through the tolls at 45 MPH instead of 15 MPH. So what? Why incur additional construction costs when the money would be better spent eliminating tolls?
