Yesterday was fun. I first drove up to Kate’s birthday party in Gansevoort/Wilton area. Around 5:30pm I left and headed down to Oneonta to see Jimkata at The Autumn Cafe. Got to Oneonta around 7, but decided to visit Nate & Brooke in Hartwick NY so I took a quick detour out that way for a short but sweet visit. Before it got dark I headed back to Oneonta for the music at the Autumn Cafe. Got treated to a big Horseshoe Lounge Playboys set and then two Jimkata sets. Was a lovely time. Then decided it was a good idea to walk around Hartwick campus a bit. Got a bit adventurous there. Sleep in my car for 2 hours. Woke up at 7am, grabbed a coffee, got on the road, and was home by 8:30. I love adventures like that!

I drove back from oneonta.. left about 130am… or something like that… i stopped at the rest stop in worcester ny (before richmondville) and got out went to the peepee room etc…. then sat in my car for a bit… i set my alarm for 15 minutes thinking i could rest for that amount of time, wake up and just finish the drive… wasnt that far from there, but was tired.. still over a half hour… anyway…. there were a few tractor trailers in the rest stop but whatever… so.. another car pulled in… i stayed awake to see what their deal was… then the sketchyest thing happened ever… i was sitting there.. and then all of a sudden i saw a sketchy guy walking towards my car… he’s wearing one of those flannel style shirts and looked all sketchy… he’s staring directly at my car and directly at me as he walks right by my car… it was freaky… he walked past my car… i thought maybe he was the truck driver from that truck over there, and he was just visiting the other trucks over there… but no… after about 20 steps past my car, he turns around and does the same thing… walks right by me and my car, stares right into my car, and right at me.. at that point, i was alert and ready to jet in case he started near my car or something, heart was racing… so he continues to walk back towards his car.. okay, maybe i was just paranoid, but it was super late at night… i thought, i better wait a minute and see what he does… im not about to just start driving and then have him follow me.. i wait. i tired. i stare out the dark rainy windows towards his car to see if he goes anywhere. i say to myself, if i see that door open again, im out of there… i wait… i keep seeing his brake light turn on.. but his car isn’t moving… maybe he’s having car issues.. i dont know.. i dont really care to investigate. i wait, i watch, i paranoy… brake light turns on and off a few more times.. probably about 5 minutes go by… my car is still off… finally, i see his door open on his car and i say to myself… EFF THIS.. i turn the car on and drive the heck out of there not looking back once… so.. that was extremely sketchy, those rest stops right along there are really sketchy to begin with. i was just so tired.. i needed to rest. but it wasnt happening.. instead, i got my heart rate up and was able to drive back no problems. .other than i was still tired.. as you can see from this post, i made it back… and rested the rest of the weekend.. but i will never forget those 10-15 minutes that night where something really bad could have happened to me, but didn’t.
