The trip home from Okemo

AG’s board

Going home on the other hand was a totally different story. As I was asleep, I don’t know for sure how many times the bus stopped nor how long it crawled thru the I-95. The bus was leaking fuel and finally stopped moving on the middle of the CT exit 6 entry and the highway. We were near Stamford and the fire department and the cops showed up. They left after a bit and we learned that an extra bus was just sent to get us,but we were still about 90 minutes from the city.

It was about 9pm and we were still going to watch UFC 66 at a friends place. We had to get there as we had 2 other friends that didn’t know the host and were already on the way. Given the damned bus and our location, things weren’t looking so good. Some people, with gear and all, left to walk to the nearest train station. We managed to get a cab to come. Another person wanted to join us but backed out when the cabbie wouldn’t negotiate below $110 to get to the city. We had the cab take me and AG to the nearest train station instead. Other bus passengers were ordering pizza and asking for it to be delivered on the highway. It was a 20 minute wait for the 1st train, an express that took us to Manhattan in just 40 minutes and no stops. After a short cab ride we made it and were able to watch a few fights and the main event (Lidell vs. Ortiz).

The whole ordeal was a nasty part of an otherwise great weekend. I think it doesn’t sound so bad the way I wrote about it…
