Five Things that Don't Suck On the Road Edition

Friends, I'll be traveling for a few days. I've lined up a post or two, but there might be a couple of days where things that don't suck go without being listed. It will all be okay. Things still won't suck. I promise.

1. EZ Pass
2. ginger ale
3. getting on the road before anyone else is up
4. when the dogs don't know about the luggage*
5. road tunes

*sadly, this is theoretical for this trip
