My Providence-Salem-Boston HP Lovecraft Pilgrimage
« on: October 03, 2018, 09:57:42 PM »
I finally got a chance to visit New England and although I didn't have time/money to visit every place I wanted, I was able to hit some highlights. I found a walking pedometer site that is really quite fun, and tracked my mileage that way.

Sept 25 - Providence - 4.50 miles.
Sept 26 - Providence/Boston - 17.34 miles!! (This has to be a personal record, can't think of a day I walked more. Still hurting from this!)
Sept 27 - Boston/Salem - 9.03 miles.
Sept 28 - Boston - 3.26 miles. (Was hurting from lack of sleep/mileage and joined my group in Boston, so we rode the Hop on/Hop off and want to Harvard/RI football game.)
Sept 29 - Boston - 6.61.
Sept 30 - Boston - 8.06 miles. (Walked the Freedom Trail and other places.)
Oct 1 - Boston - 7.30 miles. (Freedom Trail again with friend.)

56.10 miles. I lost two pounds on this trip!! (I realize the distances to the hundredth can't be that accurate, but I listed them out of loyalty to the site)

Spend as little as possible on what you need so you can spend as much as possible on what you want.

Thanks for posting! I'm great fan of forum travelogues!

Unfortunately, I can't see any pictures!

All I have is 'Enlarge this image click to see full size"   :hmmm:
