Day 66: Hartford, CT - Ben’s House (0.0 miles)
Updated: May 10, 2019
July 17, 2004 - I’m so lucky to have a friend like Ben. Yesterday he comes to pick me up during Friday rush hour traffic. Then when I get in the car he has milk and cookies for me. Then when we got back to his house he grilled up a steak for me then took me out for ice cream and soda. Then watched ESPN till 2 am, then to bed. Woke up at 6 after only 4 hours of sleep so I made myself go back to sleep, then got up around 8:30. Ben fixed a big breakfast of pancakes, eggs, and bacon. It was good. Then he drove me around Hartford to do my resupplying. Went to the supermarket, then to the camping store, then the sporting good store to buy shoes and he bought them for me. I’ll be paying him back whether he likes it or not. Then we ordered pizza which was probably the best pizza I’ve ever had. We then watched a movie (Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels), such a good movie. Just hung around the house watching TV and talking. Then Ben cooked dinner, fajitas. Then later that night some of Ben’s old students stopped by after seeing a Dave Matthew’s Band concert which Ben missed because I was in town. Now it’s time for bed.
