Time to Go

I like it here in Syracuse, but there's not much going on, and no real reason to hang around. I've decided to pick up the pace for a while. Since there doesn't seem to be much work in New York State at all1, I'm going to put a bit less effort into work for a while—until I get to Pennsylvania—and more into moving along and not spending money. On that note, I intend to pack up and leave Syracuse tomorrow. I will finally be approaching Lake Ontario, and if all goes according to plan, the day after tomorrow will be a leisurely ride along the lake, in beautiful, sunny weather. I doubt I'll have good internet out there, so I'm goign to go ahead and update the map right now to where I think I'll reach tomorrow.

1Actually, what happened was that I checked out the state tax code and employment regulations, and suddenly wasn't surprised at all. I wouldn't want to run a business here either. LESSON: Governments often have very intrusive regulations, and even if they don't apply to you directly, they will affect you. No matter how simple whatever you're trying to accomplish, if you don't have a lawyer and accountant you trust on your payroll, it's always worthwhile to go through the (horrendously boring) documents; you can save yourself a lot of time and effort and stress.


On an unrelated note, I was notified at 6:47 this morning that I'm an uncle. I hear my brother Fatso is an occasional reader, so congratulations, Fatso!
